  1. Carlo @carlofar206, This is a beautiful model! How did you simulate the wood?

  2. That looks like a show winner.. Nice work!

    Edit: on second look-through today, on a larger screen, I can't help but appreciate the fabric covered surfaces as well! Again, well done!

  3. That is one naked Ishak/Mosca. Excellent!

  4. Fantastic, Carlo.
    Hard to believe this is simulated wood.

  5. Carlo, this is outstanding!
    I don't know how you did it, but it is one of the most striking, uncommon and well executed schemes I have ever seen.

  6. Superb work on this. Which wood decals did you use?

    A very illustrious model in every angle Carlo.
    The wooden panel effects and the aluminum sheen makes for a prominent and visually striking contrast so well accomplished. This really is a delight to watch.
