Looks great! That foil really makes for a shiny bird! The checkerboard markings really stand out agains the NMF also. Nice work.

Nice EYE CATCHING rendition of a bare metal B-24 Korolev, good work on the foiling process. I am very much with the mindset of Greg, the checkboard markings really do stand out as well as the engine cowlings.

I am jealous. A real splendid finish.
Jack Mugan said on July 1, 2016
Looks great….how long in the making?
Beginning 20 years ago. Many times, stopped and continued again.
Thank you for your positive feedback!

Lovely model Korolev, that bmf looks great.
Lovely model Vlad, that bmf looks great, is what I meant to say.
But forgive my English. What do the letters BMF and NMF?
Tom Cleaver said on July 3, 2016
BMF – Bare Metal Foil
NMF – Natural Metal Finish.

Hi Vlad, very well done, obviously the foil finish is what first catches our eyes, but looking closely we can see what an excellent model it is, thank you for sharing with us. I’m sure NMF means “natural metal finish”, not sure about BMF, maybe “bare metal finish”?
Korolev Vlad said on July 2, 2016
George thank you!
I thought that the Metal Foil. And the first letters is unclear.
Tom Bebout said on July 2, 2016
Excellent work, it turned out great, thanks for sharing.
Tom thank you!

Vlad, that looks great. I am about to paint OR do a foil job on a 1/48 P-47. I think what you showed us has steered me towards foil, but a far less complicated job than you dealt with.
Jim Sullivan said on July 2, 2016
Congratulations Vlad…Very nicely done. Obviously a lot of hard work went into producing that beautiful model.
Dmitry Ryzhenkov said on July 2, 2016
Vlad, great job! Probably hard to hang his foil? But the result is wonderful!
California Steve said on July 2, 2016
Vlad, Time well spent. What a stunningly beautiful model. I have a question as I would like to attempt to try my hand at the foil process.
What type of glue or adhesive did you use to bond the foil to the plastic?
So well done!
Steve, thank you!
I used three kinds of foil in rolls. They have a layer of adhesive. In our town, they are sold in supermarkets and shops of building materials.
Rolls width of 50mm and a length of 10-50 meters.
If the foil has no layer of glue, then I use three types of glue depending of type size and destination details. This superglue, PVA (white glue), rubber cement.
California Steve said on July 3, 2016
Thanks Vlad. You have been very helpful..
Very realistic. Excellent work.
Korolev Vlad said on July 3, 2016
Thank you! Спасибо!
Bernard E. Hackett, Jr. said on July 4, 2016
Vlad, that is one beautiful piece of work, particularly with the foil(s). The markings are equally striking.
Korolev Vlad said on July 5, 2016
Bernard, thank you!

Another beauty, Vlad!
Jeff Bailey said on August 6, 2017
This one is so beautiful, I have to comment again. Absolutely stunning. I have but one complaint – It’s that I don’t have the talent to do near as well!
Korolev Vlad said on August 6, 2017
Jeff, thank you!
David A. Thomas said on October 19, 2017

I’ve used metal foil (Bare Metal) but only for small details, and I can imagine your work in this kit. Really beautiful work. Congratulations!!
