I like collecting scale kits, although I didnt built them all, since I always end up with a horrible results when it comes to a painting job, luckily a friend of mine willing to do it as a commisions.
So let me share it here, all of the scale kits I own here were the one that Ive already modeled in 3d as my artworks. Some are in my future to do list as well
Scale kits helps me to study an aircraft shapes while doing some modeling.. (some brands do have a bad accuracy thou..) but mostly their fuselage and wings area quite OK.
The first one is my Academy Su-30MK2 TNI AU 1/48
with a custom hand made model from (clay?) such as wingtip and stabilizers and custom decals too!
This model a fair accuracy.
and heres My Sukhois gallery : siregar3d.deviantart.com/galle…
The second one is my Hasegawa F-14D Red Rippers 1/48
This model has a pretty good accuracy. Some parts were falsely using A/B version, and no weapons included.
and heres my Tomcat works so far : siregar3d.deviantart.com/galle…
Third one is Academy F-15E 1/48
This model has pretty good details. Plenty choices of weapons.
Hope someday I can tackle to 3d modeling this plane! Will see If I can do a better progress than my F-14.
The F-14D studio photos were following this tutorial : fav.me/d4lwfn9
(really cool and simple tutorial, be sure to check it out)
So, any of you guys like to collect something that related to your artworks?
