Getting close to calling "U10" finished! Still waiting on a wooden prop from the Micro Group and still have to finish painting the dog. I purchased cabinet "pulls" and screwed them to the bottom of the frame to lift it about an inch in an attempt to make it look a little different than just a frame. I took the glass out of the frame and replaced it with an 8X10 oil painter's palette onto which I added the groundwork, and static grass...painted it with an airbrush, oils washes, and finished with powders.  photo 20141005_124506_resized.jpg  photo 20141005_124401_resized.jpg

Pilot #2

Trying to get everything finished for the Chicago Show this coming weekend. I don't have time to complete the fuel cart and figures right now but managed to get a second pilot painted and am working on a dog too. This pilot and the dog will be positioned next do the DVII as if he's in conversation with the pilot of "U10". Painted in oils, this figure was also sculpted by Steve Warrilow.  photo 20141004_105445_resized.jpg

About ready to secure the tail...  photo 20140924_182754_resized.jpg  photo 20140924_182802_resized.jpg
