Thanks, Paul...

So, here's a Mirage:

Image

And here's a burning MiG. Still work to do, but I'm pleased with the fire effect:

and here's a Mirage pointing at a distant MiG, as in the artwork:

The markings are not exactly those of the box art, but these Superscale decals actually work!

bestest,
M.

The Mirage looks great. I really like what you've done with the MIG, looks as if the plane has a molten core, very clever!

Looks like they hit the fuel tank. Maybe a few wisp of cotton wool would be a good addition?

I really like the Mirage. The explosions really came to life from the "Swimmers" they first looked like. :-D

Thanks, chaps...

Here's the extended and motion-blurred final background art:

I now need to find somewhere in town that can run it out on a high-quality A3 colour printer...

Slight screw-up on the printing front... it should be back tomorrow!

Progress so far:

The rockets are painted fishing line, which does have a tendency to return to the shape on the reel...

You guys are kicking butt and taking names with these box art builds. Nothing short of AMAZING...

Thanks, chaps. Here's the first full mock-up, with the backdrop:

Image

The "titles" aren't the final ones yet, and I need to find out what the end of a Type IV dogfight double box looks like so I can repeat the distortion trick on the sides of the base. I'm going to give the MiGs wire undercarts, so they can sit a little more off the base, and if I can find any 1/185 >1/200 scale little guys, I'll pop them on...

And here's the closest I can get to the box art crop with my camera, indoors in poor light...

Image

I need some rocket exhaust from the pods, as well... where's that cotton wool?

bestest,
M.

Superb stuff. Can we have a couple of side shots so we (erm... I ) can get a better idea of how you've achieved the distortion?
