    Hi everyone... I am back with a new build.. This time I have tried my hand on Yokosuka 'Judy' a Japanese war plane... I loved the details of this model that is why I considered it worth trying... It took me 5 months to complete as I am a very busy person now :)
    Please find below the pictures of the same:

    I started from the nose section on 29th Sp, '09:

    Well, I always use gloss paper to print the parts... It gives a look as if its plastic or metal sometimes :twisted:

    :eek: That is truly beautiful work atamjeet. Most paper although glossy don't always appear like polished aluminum, but this one looks perfect. The finish on the model gives it another dimension.

    Great work, looking forward to more. :thumb:

    Hello atamjeet,
    is your great work (Bravo).
    The glossy paper is a winning choice for the look of the model.

    Orazio.

    Thanks for your kind words :thumb:... This time I am very satisfied with the results of the canopy as I have been making models of airplanes earlier as well, but this time the fineness and the finishing I have been able to achieve is really satisfying for me :thumb:. This model, as I said, is very detailed especially the canopy part, that is why I was very sure that if I could finish this model in a fine way, the details in the canopy would make it look real.... and ofcource, not to mention about the magic the gloss paper does for me everytime... I always preffer gloss paper for my models.
    Have a look at all my models at www.artwanted.com/atamjeet.

    Atamjeet,

    Nice work! I especially like the ailerons and flaps. Looks great. I thought about printing on gloss photo paper, but I am a little worried about fingerprints. Was this a problem for you?

    Thanks for your words :p Well I have been using gloss paper since almost 2 years now and I haven't faced any kind of difficulty so far. I don't think that finger prints could create any problem on gloss paper. Infact, this paper is much more attractive and easier to use as well. The build looks beautiful on completion and gives a realistic feel and appearance.:thumb:

    By the way, do any one of you happen to know where can I get a free model of Sukhoi 30 MKI or Apache chopper?

    You sir are a talented individual. I was amazed at all the different types of models you have constructed and the workmanship was outstanding. All were as good as it gets, but my favorite was the butterfly!:wave:

    You are right, most glossy papers don't always appear like Aluminium. I always go for a Matt printing paper (even for this model), but after the printing is done, it gives a magical feel of gloss. I don't know how this is achieved after the printing but I think its Laser printing which gives it a glossy appearance.
    The next time I will go to that printing shop (Printo), I'll ask them what quality of paper do they use and why it gives a gloss finish....
    One thing I would like to share... I remember when I built Tiger-1 Tank, I used the gloss paper to print the things. I found it very difficult to mark the edges of that paper with sketch pen... Afetr that, I never went for gloss paper. Once the printing is done, the Matt paper gives a glossy appearance :)... Hope it helps:twisted:

    Hi Atamjeet....Fantastic model you have there...Where can I download this from? I've never built planes but this one is pretty tempting considering the level of detail...
