Very cool 👍
This looks interesting, will wait to see more!
Very cool Marco. Amazing what you can do in that scale 👍
Nice, seen one in Ovda. 👍 Not too clean?😉
Impressive attention to detail 👍

It's impressive that you can work with such an aircraft in that scale.
She's tiny! Nice job! 👍
Thank you! It is indeed tiny. I am not completely satisfied with the result, but as the box includes two more, this one was practice🙂
Agree with Roberto, just wow!
I am simply speechless... Fantastic work, Marco!
top - the bottle looks oversized for the paintjob lol
Thank you all. You are too kind. I hope the other two models (one will be an UT-1 on floats and the other an armed UT-1b) go a bit better.
A unique model, very well done 👍

Here are a few photos of my recently completed 1:144 scale E-2C Hawkeye.
Beautiful build, congrats! 👍

nice job well done
very cool build.
Thank you Matt! This one was finished way back (more than 10 years ago)!
Nice ricer 👍. Well done!
Decals applied (almost at least, I still miss the propeller ones). After painting a few more details, some subtle weathering will be added to complete this build.
Sharp and clean work Marco. Looking forward to the final 👍
looking good Marco.
Nice work on masking the nose anti glare field in black, goes to show it pays off being attentive and careful. 🙂

To many projects and so little time for the hobby! This project is on old for know and I do not know when I'll get it back to the workbench! Thank you for your interest in this little project.

Nice finish, some angles look metallic black, others straight black, good job
Great engine bay. Well done.
Looks great. Did those aftermarket parts come in the kit?
What paint did you use for the body? Also which other paints are needed? I'm planning to buy this kit and want to make sure I have all the paints too the same time.
Jimmy, the Nismo strut bar was scratch built using plastic card and tube. The brake lines and ignition loom were also added using thin wire. Everything else are the kit parts. If I remember correctly, I used the body from a JGTC R32 Skyline, that has the 2 air vents in the front bumper.
The body color is the Tamiya TS that is recommended in the instructions (I will have to check on my notes which code it is), overcoated with gloss varnish.
superclean built! impressive paintjob
awesome job on the extra detail, wish i could pull that off
i have axia decals going free if anyone wants them

Here is a simple tutorial showing how I make photos of scale models. I hope you find it usefull.
By the way, if I was not clear in any part of the blog post, please tell me so I can make it as easy as possible to be followed by anybody (specially for people new to photography).
Excellent tutorial Marco. Thanks for putting it together 👍
I am glad you like it Alex! I hope you find it useful!

Beautifull work! Congratulations
Thank you Jan! I am not entirely happy with it, but it was a "nice" learning experience!
it looks great
Agreed - looks fantastic to me 👍
Spanjaard and Neil, thank you for your comments!
Are we ever entirely happy? 😛
Very nice, loving the colours and the transparencies 👍
Good job, Marco! I like the subtle weathering - perfectly adequate IMHO. Congrats

Lovely colour scheme and subtle weathering!
Very beautiful small scale build!
Thank you Mark and Neuling! It is a very old build (from 2008) that got a new base this weekend (I am making similar bases for all my 1:72 scale military vehicles).

Thank you for your kind comments! This build has been somewhat troublesome! I'm planning in completing all panel line washes and just add some fuel and exhaust stains to complete it. I made a few video clips showing how I solved some silvering that appeared on the old kit decals and I plan to edit into a simple tutorial video. I'll share it here when I manage to edit it all together.
Well done. Congrats!
well done 👍
Great build ?
Good work ,,, like it very much ,,, it looks you've got the typical Dragon fit issues

I've put mine on hold but will be looking into your project for inspiration.
I'm planning on building it quickly (a couple of weeks, if my work allows me some free time). I'm going to post some photos here, but I'll be making some blog posts with more details of the build. Thanks for your interest.
Looking forward to it! 🙂
wow great build !!!!

How did you airbrush it?
Treehugger, sorry I am not sure I understand your question!
I airbrushed the base colours using my trusty old CR Revelution airbrush (with 0.5mm nozzle). Afterwards, subtle effects were applied using oils and enamels (using a brush). Watercolour pencils were also used to highlight some edges.
If you are interested I can check what colours were used and I hope to have answered your question.

That is superb, Marco, the canopy framing is brilliant considering how tiny the model is!
Looks like a lot better than some 1/72 kits.
Very good job, contratulations!
Looks perfect to me, I needed a second look to believe that its 1:144!
Very nice and clean work.
I can only say 👍 👍 👍
Brilliant in this scale!
Microscopic precision, admirable !
Thats a cute little fellar!
144?? excellent work!!!
What a result on 144! Awesoe work Marco! I wish my 1:72 where so clean and crisp like your 144.
Excellent. I don't know how you all do such outstanding jobs on models so small. LOL.
Excellent and clean and sharp work - very well done👍
very nice build Marco 👍
Great work 👍
really nice built 👍
Nice work. Clean and tiny
Very neat and tidy finish, great looking end result.
I agree with Stuart.
Well done 👍
A little gem .........
Thank you mates! In my blog, you can find a couple of posts about this little project. I hope you find it an interesting read (I also made a couple of videos.
Wow! Looks like 1:48!
