Farman F223.1 by Abiogenisis Farman F223.1 by Abiogenisis
(For those wondering what I have been doing, I have taken a short break from scifi art to learn how to make scale models. I can then use these skills to make models of my own designs.)

This is my second attempt at scale modeling, A 1/72 scale French aircraft called the Farman F223.1, a kit from Azur

by mean of "make model", you mean building model from scratch? not just assembling the plastic model kit?

While my either skill are of no compare to yours but that's my goal too and is so gonna try 3D printing when time has come :)

Good job - I haven't built a scale model in so long. This is an interesting subject and the paint job looks amazing. I wouldn't realize it was 1/72 scale if you hadn't said something - it looks so detailed.

Nicely done! I enjoy the subtle weathering.

The sci-fi crowd tends to use a lot of innovative techniques in modeling, like using found objects, building up complex shapes from cross-sections, using Sculpey and other multi-media to get the desired results, etc. These techniques could come in handy if you're planning on building your own designs.

Cool stuff. Building kits are a blast. I'm sure you'll enjoy branching out into this art form.

Stunning work, you have the skillz. All artists should do this sort of thing; it's a form of inter-disciplinary education, which can only do good. The gunmetal on the engine has come up beautifully. I see you even flattened the landing wheels to simulate the weight of the aircraft: great! The grime and paint chips are not overdone, which is nice to see.

If you're worried about alienating your fans, you can always make another account to post this sort of thing in. Or just put it in scraps.

Personally, I love this new art form you've taken up.
