That's a P-47 in front of the B-29. The B-29 is a big model.

Lovely final result and the jug gives a great sense of just how big this beastie is. :unworthy:

Brilliant result, Johnny! 

The Jug is a big beast in itself.  If you put a Ki-44 Tojo with it (a regular opponent), it would look even more huge...lol

Wow, eye candy, the result you achieved is perfect. You can't beat the real material for the surface. It seems like the hard way to foil a plane, but it sure looks great.

Cheers Rob

Yep, it takes a long time to finish a model in foil because each panel needs to be individually foiled.  However, is the best way to duplicate a NMF. The B-29 took over 100 hours, because a bunch of that time was spent correcting poor engineering, especially the exhaust pipes.

Following is a photo of my P-51 next to my P-47. The P-47 is a much larger plane.

Hi Johnny, I look at what you have achieved and I feel you have done those old moldings proud - I'm sure somewhere there's an old retired mold/modelmaker from Monogram looking at what you have created and smiling childlike to themselves over their coffee...

Thanks everyone!!

I really like working on those older Monogram/Revell models. It reminds me of when I put those together as a kid (long time ago).  Back then I tried to paint the finished model with Testors' paint from the little square bottles. That never worked out very well, so usually I left the models in their natural gray plastic, blobs of glue and fogged up canopies.
