hope i put this in the right place, now i know a lot of us build Plasti-kits (airfix, revell etc...) now a while back i wanted to experiment with schemes before applying them, so i took side photos of my aircraft and started re-drawing them, suffice to say my addiction (is an accurate description of my hobby) became Profile art, i'll show you a key example i did for my uncle... not finished yet but shows shape and form, and shows with camo on on a close up...

now i'm heading a bit further back in time (not much further back) and working on this... no prizes for guessing what it is :icon_lol: currently on the lineart stage, getting the basics down before i even put virtual pen onto Virtual paper :icon_lol:
