RAAF Beaufighter Mk IC


Recommended Posts

Just adding a diorama created in 2014 of a RAAF Beaufighter.

 

So i gave my good old Revell 1/32 (1975?) a complete overhaul, inside and out. After a year or so, reworking all of the model until i was happy with it.

 

I couldn't resist playing a little with Photoshop and a bad model photo, and this was the result. I hope you like it.

It all started out by being inspired by this photo found on AWM homepage.

Someone gave me an excellent idea. Why not try to make the diorama look like an old black/white photo.

So i tried adding a color filter + "dust & scartches" filter in Photshop. This is the result!

Are you actually insane or are you still working on it?? Seriously an incredible piece of work. I absolutely love it, everytime I look at the pictures I spot something new. You do realise 'they' will take your tools and paint off you before you go in the padded cell?

Now it all makes sense. We are very close in age and obviously both heavily influenced by Shep. Your tribute diorama to him is outstanding and spot on. The one I want to emulate is the P-61 and now that there is a 1/32 kit, I am seriously considering it. I kept a box of all of the Monogram insets and its amazing looking back on them now. He was way ahead of his time.
