That's really neat! Yellow is the perfect color for it too.

I've seen that bit of photoshop you mentioned. Can't recall where nor do I remember seeing anyone do this in plastic before.

Nice one!

P.S. This makes me think of a bit of my childhood. My mom's favorite color was yellow. When we played board games, she said she'd be any color but would move the yellow piece anyway. She was always yellow.

I love yellow in ericr models while in our country (him and me), yellow has a bad reputation. We say "jaune cocu" meaning this is the color of a husband whose wife has a secret lover...

**MOVED** Re: Camel & daVinci wings, blue Re: hybrid aircraft/animals and others
« Reply #738 on: November 13, 2016, 07:05:43 PM »

the other half of the 1/28 Camel had to have a life, and in my qtash I had this Revell wooden kit of da Vinci designed wings for manned flight :




I just couldn't resist, because any aircraft can be improved by fitting floats (or a hull) :
the latter comes from an old three masted "Hamphitrite" by Heller, and the side floats are fuel barrels from two 1/48 P-61 from Revell.
And therefore this topic is **MOVED** to another appropriate thread of mine :
