I.M.A.M Ro 57 bis

Post by D520 » Thu Aug 20, 2009 7:50 am

Here are some pics of my finished model for a future Wing Master issue, the undercarriage has been a tricky one to understand, and Special Hobby notice is of no good help!

Another masterpiece, Jean... Congratulations!

Do you know if there are any kits of the Ro 57 in 1/72 scale?

I look forward to the pictures of your next models, as usual.

Cheers

Alex

Thanks, Vince

I will see if I can find one. Maybe EBay...

I just wish it would look anything like Jean's... maybe in another life!

Wow!
Another masterpiece indeed!!
I love the weathering.
Jean, did you use oils for the weathering or India inks?

Ciao Vincent, and grazie! I use mainly oils paints for weathering, and the oil splatches on the engine nacelles is only black highly diluted with white spirit and splatched with a hard edge brush. regards, jean;

Hi Jean,
Thanks for the info.
I use India Inks, but I think that I will try oils, next time.

Great job!! I to had a problem figuring out the landing gear. Also I had to shim the wing to avoid a step at the wing joint. Other than that everything was fine. Thanks for the pictures. Some day I will also learn how to send pictures.

vincente :D

Looking at Mirek's one , I was amazed at the differences two ways of modeling can have as a result. That's a great part of the fun!
