1/48th Monogram Spad

I guess you could call this a “what-if” (or some may call it a WTF). I used the ‘greeting card’ method of camo – albeit probably not a true replication of an actual SEA pattern [but who knows?]…take an old card (or similar) and rip – not cut – an irregular opening in the center. Hold the card an an appropriate distance from your subject and spray through it (turning it over creates a different pattern). Use as many cards with varying openings as you can think of and overlay your colors. Quick and easy way with the least amount of work….(never let it be said I didn’t do the least I could do). After all, modeling is fun, right..?
And yes, the photos are less than stellar….again – out in the modeling room (“lazy” rears its’ ugly head yet another time).

  1. Very cool Craig! Take that bad boy outside for a few more pics! Thanks for sharing your work.

  2. As lazy is my middle name, I will be trying that method! And the pics look a heck of alot better than some of my first attempts.

  3. Might be a WTF, but pretty interesting nonetheless.
