Hi all

At long last, the Dragonfly is finished and I can go back to spaceships again ;D

Thanks to all who watched and commented in the WIP























Thanks for looking everyone

WOW! She's quite beautiful! Very nice work, indeed! You have really recreated that steampunk "pewter" look as well as a very realistic wood grain. The rivets on those delicate wings are a really nice touch.

What is the translucent material you used on the wings?

Again, fantastic work!

thanks man - appreciated

The material sandwiched in the middle is laser cut acetate which comes with the kit, so I can't take any credit for that what so ever. Nor for the surface details. I only added PE bolts to the body. Everything else comes in the kit  ;)

After looking again, I was wondering how you got the wood look of the landing base. My first thought was that you used something like actual tongue depressors because the grain looked so real and even in-scale.  :o

thanks guys - I appreciate the feedback  :)

It looks like wood because it is wood  ;D The base is cut up strips of balsa wood stained with Vallejo "European Dirt" acrylic wash
Quite a nice effect if I do say so myself

Very nice! I thought that was the case, but the sense of scale was so well-maintained that I felt it was scaled to the 1/32 scale ! I love the Vallejo line of products. Although I think I got a bad batch of the black primer. The pigment wouldn't stay suspended in the liquid and settled in the bowl causing my airbrush to clog every few minutes. Although it dried fine. Anyway, awesome work!

That is a very cool model. The lighting on the landing pad looks great!
