    What? Did that guy dragged out *that* old chestnut here?!!! The man has no shame......:rolleyes:

    Absolutely :thumb:

    You should populate some of the plastic-centric model forums with it. Like the American Express commercials we get here in the States, I've no doubt the reaction would be "priceless"....

    Absolutely beautiful! I would say that it sets the Gold standard for models, but I would be wrong because obviously it sets the Silver standard.

    I'd say retire the POTW - but we need to see Bomarc's entry and a few others before we do. Billy - any fiber-optic camera shots of the interior, instrument panels, checklist pages, random goobers lost under the seat ...

    How was it done?

    Just what is the secret of that natural metal finish? Special paper, or special technique?

    Thanks for the info...

    Regards,
    Robert

    Excellent job! I like the technique of shooting your pictures on the mirror, it gives a great view of the whole model.
