Hi everyone,

Here i present my last ended work.

I confess that I have always seen these WWII fighters like birds, struggling to survive, hunting or being hunted. So it is easy to understand that when I started reading the story of the allied ace George Beurling, which they called "The Falcon of Malta", quickly i imagine a scene like I present here.

From the beginning the idea was to make something different from the conventional, more symbolic or imaginative modeling. I tried to represent the allied victory of G. Beurling in Malta over the Nazis ... letting the imagination fly. One of the spitfire in which the ace flew, the Mk Vb transformed into a hawk, giving much more prominence to the plane than the bird. Just a couple of details giving rise to a wing and a claw from the fuselage. Metal bent and cracked that leads to Falcon. Trying to do it the most elegant way possible, keeping the beautiful lines and proportions of spitfire and avoiding exaggerations or defects too flashy.

After more than 2 years, I've been catching and leaving the project without too much time. I'm happy with the end result but as is normal, with some details that i would change if I'll do it again.

i will glad to response any questions about the progress, techniques, etc..

I hope you enjoy this "different" work.

Thanks a lot!!

Mr. Green Mr. Green

Yes, we could displace this work to fantasy ... or scenes / dioramas .. but since my point of view ... i did a very exhaustive work trying to replicate the same Spitfire mk.Vb of George Beurling ... same model, paint, deco, stencils, engine, ... and i think that every aircraft modeler can enjoy that very much better that the modelers in Fantasy or Scenes. ... i think!

jejeje i had the same issue with the judges in the last contest where i went.
