Hey everybody!, I´m from Monterrey, Mexico. I have been in the hobby for some years now, but recently have retaken it more frecuently. Mostly I love building modern aircrafts and sci-fi models (most of them from my childhood memories - I was a late 70´s and early 80´s kid-). Also have been experimenting with polymer clay lately, see what can come up with.
Hope I can help and learn from everybody around here. Cheers!

Thanks everyone!
I’ll post some pictures of the models I have built, pardon the quality of the photos, I’m looking forward to learn how to take proper pictures.

The first are my finished models, then some experimenting with epoxic clay, and the third is my current in progress project.

I just noticed it's not the same aircraft, but very similar.

Hello! Yes, they are abit different, the one I built is the "razorback" version and yours is the bubbletop version. Very nice built by the way, loved how the structure of the bubble top got differentiated from the transparent part.
I had a very hard time doing that (if look closely at the pic I posted you can see I didnt do well in that part).
