Silver Airplanes Part Three
F-
100D Super Sabre

by Roger M. Jackson

 


Introduction

Recently, I have been experimenting with some new photo techniques for shooting models finished in NMF or silver paint. I've never been happy with my results in the past and I think I still need to refine certain aspects of my current set-up. Nevertheless, some of my recent efforts using some new imaging and processing software turned out halfway presentable and I thought I'd share a few of the better shots.

Most of these models are several years old (hell, decades!) as can be plainly seen by the "brown out" visible on several decals and the slight yellowing of the white-painted details.

 


This Monogram 1/48 scale F-100 extended my penchant for self-abuse to new heights as virtually every detail on the model was reworked.

The landing gear struts were all scratch-built, as were the pitot tube, the IFR probe, the arresting hook, the tail skid.

The model was finished in Testor's chrome silver, then Dullcoted to simulate a weathered lacquered-aluminum finish.

I used Bare Metal foil to simulate the unpainted portion of the aft fuselage and Superscale decals to depict an early aircraft from the Vietnam War.

A full report on this model is archived at Modeling Madness
