    Fantastic work, as always. I can't wait to build this one.

    Great subject choice, too... a rare but important bird. Looks like the stumpy precursor to the Sabre.

    The model gets a painting schema from a plane of the NAS Oakland 1950 including the cool "Weekend Warriors" logo (appears on left side only).

    Very nice coloring! I also like the spoked nose wheel.

    The model looks great but the paint job is simply amazing.
    Now if i could only build an aircraft and have it not look like a crumpled up tissue.
    Thanks for posting the pics for us to drool over!

    The model is superb. Much much better than my FJ-3M.
    Good work :)

    Good question! ;-)
    The paintjob is finished, but the instructions certainly difficult for me.

    Very nice model. The color schema is beautiful.

    Just curious: Do you use some software to design?

    Regards

    Hi Alcides,

    Yes, meanwhile I use Rhino. But the most of my sci-fi models are still "old school". :)

    I eagerly await the arrival of this fine model. Your work so far, on both design and markings, looks very good. I happen to live near Oakland and I am sure this model will be a big hit at future model shows in the area.

    Shoot, never have set foot in California yet, but I still want one of these beauties!:twisted:
    What a gorgeous paint job, sir! I love it! You are very talented!
    I can't wait to see the creations in your future!8)

    For instructions, drawings and pictures speak more than words, if that helps any.:wink:
