Definitely two of the areas I need to work on. Even with functional control surfaces, some panel lining can really set a model off, such as doors and access panels. It's one of those things that takes practice to get the right balance. I started adding wing fillets on planes with highly distinctive fillets on my more recent models. Looking at some of my older models where they were omitted, such as my Guillows Spitfire, they honestly look like cheap ARFs without them.David Duckett wrote:I've never been to a scale flying meet but if true scale is important I suggest you add some detail to your models, such as the control surfaces. Adding them is easy with a Sharpie and a ruler and they certainly add to the scale look.
I also noticed that you have left the wing filets off the Spitfire and 109 and since they are such distinctive parts of the design, will that detract from the score?
