This baby shows off some absolutely mad NMF skill, Mr Jello!

Among the best NMF I think I've ever seen, actually.

Nice to see you're in the home-stretch!

This is looking great! Some of the low angle pictures look like the hangar picture I took of the N-9M. (except for the giant skateboard)

Fantastic!  I really want to steal this idea.  Doubt I will be able to do it to your level of excellence though.

She's done!  Here are the last batch of photos before she goes into the display cabinet.











Thanks!

Looking good John!  Like the spinning propeller disc effect.  Did you do it yourself or is that an aftermarket accessory?

AM from Alliance Modelworks - I used a pair of their 1/72 F4U Dynamic Props that I picked up at last year's Nationals.  I'd recommend them, though they are a bit pricy for what is basically a single piece of PE.

There's also a painting stencil for them, but I passed on it this time around.

Nice!
And I hope there is a closed window of the display cabinet, because these (impressive!) rotating propellers may be dangerous for visitors...
Congratulations!

Gorgeous build Mr. LJ.

Much like Mr. Fontaine, kits finished like this may have myself resort back to safer hobbies such as Spirograph.

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

Looks great! I never thought spinning PE props would look this realistic.
