What a wonderful result. !
Metal is one of the hardest finishes to get right, and by the looks, you have achieved the best you could work towards. ;)
Most impressive indeed.

Thanks
Learning experience, having never tried it before. Not a great kit but a great aircraft

Treehugger
Spectacular. I like it. :) How many different shades of foil on this model? Just one?
13. July, 17:47
Chris Parsons
Hahahahaha I wish! 3 different shades of foil, 5 separate sheets in all. Bright metal, new improved bright metal, dull metal shades used on the model
13. July, 17:56
Chris Parsons
The same shade turned 90° gives a different appearance due to the "grain" going a different direction

Wow, this is spectacular!! fantastic job chris! placed in front of a background photo this will look like 1:1

Alexander
I agree, when it comes to scale models your particular project does come very close to original. The metal sheen looks very convincing and almost gives the model a "heavy" look when you at it for some time - great job!

Fantastic looking Sabre. Looks impressive from every angle. I love that metal finish as well.

Very interesting &impressive job with metal foil
9. July, 21:31
Gordon Sørensen
Awesome job with the foil, Chris! That is something I have wanted to try. Did you rotate the foil panels to get different metallic tones? Or are you going to do something 'post-foiled'?
10. July, 01:29
Chris Parsons
Hi Gordon. You are correct, the grain in many places is just rotated 90° to the one adjacent. There are 3 different shades of BMF on the model as well (5 sheets in all)
10. July, 03:46
Treehugger
Interesting. I wonder, how do you sort out what panels are overlapping onto others? Presumably, you place the foil, over the adjacent foil to avoid gaps.
11. July, 13:14
Chris Parsons
You are correct, I overlap panels of foil then trim along panel lines and discard the off-cut makes for much waste but better fit overall. Learned to trim before the burnish down because removing excess burnished down foil can lift or, tear the underlying foil panel as well.

Thank you very much mates!
Lukasz the kit is very nice, better than some mainstream kits I've built and waaaay better than the Broplan vac ATR Kit I just finished! I bought a couple more in fact. The only real issue was the front half of the engines to the back half/ nacelle. The decals are Arctic Decals from Finland very good product!

That's a beautiful King Air Chris. Fine work sir :)
16. June, 01:09

Thanks for your reply Chris, it's hard to find a reliable review of RVHP King Air. :)
Regarding Broplan and their ATR - as they say where I live: don't compare a dog to a horse ;)

Nice work Chris, I assume the resin is your own stuff. Brave man building a Broplan kit!
4. May, 03:59
Chris Parsons
Hahaha thanks Ray. It's been 3 years in the making! I'm gonna push through to the bitter end now if I can. I made resin engines and main gear sponson....I can't recommend this kit
4. May, 04:04
Łukasz Gliński
It's Broplan, but what can you expect, while there's no competition in 1.72 :(
Great job anyway, looking forward to seeing it completed
4. May, 10:13
Zbynek Honzik
You are a real brave man Chris! Congratulations on completing the model! This is the first time I see a completed ATR from Broplan. You did a great job, while Broplan should be really ashamed of what they made.

Thomas Bischoff
Gorgeous result!
17. May, 08:55
Chris Parsons
Hahaha! Thanks guys! It took all my energy to get it done, breaking it back down to re-do stuff as I went Along. Once I got the sponson fitted and quit cracking open seams I quickly painted it. I bought 2 thinking I'd do a couple....not sure I will now though, it's a tough nut!

Hi Chris. Considering the starting kit this is a tremendous result. I have recently taken delivery of a Broplan RWD-13. Not sure my very amateurish skills are currently up to this and so will be pushing it to the back of the workbench for a (long) while.

Thank you kindly sir!
A friend saw this model and asked if I'd do a model of Dassault 900 he maintains. I said I would...until I found out Broplan is the only one who makes a kit of it!...I may have to revisit that idea!

26. June 2019, 03:03
Chris Parsons
Ah ha, Gordon....exactly the look I was after thank you! A 1957 182! The only decals are the reg. Borrowed from the A 26 I stuck turbines on. Also, in these images I'd forgotten the scissor link on the nose wheel. It's since been installed.
It takes two of these kits to get 3 wheel fairings, good thing the others will be float planes!
26. June 2019, 04:41
Gordon Sørensen
I figured you would have just resin-cast some more...
5. July 2019, 17:47
Chris Parsons
Haha, I did think about it but the spare kit was so handy!
Although...I am resin casting engines right now (tonight actually) for my Broplan ATR 42 project... I built one engine and not wanting to face that task for the other engine (or another kit) I figured it'd be easier to just cast the built nacelle
There's a build log on Largescale planes in the non LSP forum
6. July 2019, 04:04
Chris Parsons
Finally back to work on the ATR 42 I have the engine castings done, (could still use refinement) and resin casts of the lower landing gear sponson. A tough nut to figure out for me (puddle casting) I've ended up doing them as multi part components
