Robert W Martel Real nice job Gary! The plane is a beauty and good photography too! Goes along well with the rest of your builds. Nice Work !!

Kerry Cox Gary, I am in total agreement with all the other comments here. :)
You have bought out that "Grunt" look about the 'Fury' and your detailing is wonderful. :)
Real eye candy for sure.

Dale Marston Nice. The Fury is one of my favourites.

Martin Oostrom Gary, these are some very nice birds. They survived well :)
I really like the Dauntless
04. June 2017 at 21:53:32
Gary Brantley Thanks for taking time to comment Martin! I appreciate your interest my friend. :) Yeah, they're all old builds but somehow they keep soldiering on. Pretty good "four-footers" I guess...

Gary Brantley Martin, a few more Dauntless pics have been added.

J W Hi Gary - whilst the models, setting and photos are all outstanding, is there any tricks to make the tyres look just a bit more realistic? I'm not nitpicking, I'm simply interested if there is another way - besides spending a small fortune on aftermarkets, or perhaps sanding the bottoms a bit? Any ideas, anyone?
Cheers 'mate,

James C Awesome looking builds Gary. If I had to pick a favourite, I'd probably go for the P-40. Very cool!
05. June 2017 at 12:54:57
Spanjaard nice pics Gary, as usual :)

Gary Brantley Thank you gentlemen! I appreciate that you had a look and left your comments. Yes, JW, the tires should've been sanded on the bottom. I have done that on some builds, I guess that's just a weakness of mine that I didn't do all of them that way. You might note that the Spitfire has after-market "flattened" resin wheels/tires. Is it hard to tell? Twenty five years ago, I just didn't understand how important that one step must be. I swear I'll never NOT sand a tire bottom again! Scout's honor? ;)

James, I still like that old P-40 as well. There's just something about the "stance" that makes me grin every time I look at her. The P-40 had a rough an' tumble look about her and that "built-in headwind" of a chin gives it that predatory look. That Zero was taken to school one day for a model demonstration in class. I transported it to and fro in a big VCR box. A dumb ass custodian at school stuck his hand down into the box as I was carrying it back to my car. I was telling him not to do it but couldn't prevent his hand from just flattening that Zero. I was so pissed! The landing gear just never did look right again. My models were shown to hundreds of young teens but the only damage came from that moron. :(

Spanjaard, thanks brother, some of them look pretty good. I thought the SBD photographed well at the airport too. Believe or not, I still have some models that haven't been out there yet. I guess there will be more to come... :).

Thanks again!
