About Matthew Quiroz (Red4)
FROM: CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES

After a several year break from the hobby I have happily returned to it. Slowly, but surely getting my mojo back.

Excellent as ever Matt, really enjoyed seeing the build. I feel inspired to get F-105, probably the Hobby Boss. What is the bit of writing on the outer starboard air intake? Thanks for posting. tim

Hi Matt Really nice! The post-shading works brilliantly with the raised panel lines, and details like the cockpit and nose-wheel well look superb. All the best Rowan

Thanks for the kudos Tim and Rowan. The writing on the intakes is the name of the plane, "Patience". On the port side of the fuselage is a picture of a buzzard. This goes hand in hand with the planes name. There was a poster years ago that had two buzzards sitting on a tree branch. One was saying to the other, "Patience my ass, I'm gonna kill something". Thanks again for the kudos guys, much appreciated. "Q"

Great build and finished model Matt. I really do love your post shading technique. With you building all these Century series aircraft, it is really re-kindling my interest again. Suppose I shall have to go in the loft and rummage through the stash now. Andy

Thanks Andy. Glad to be of assistance.. I've got more Century Series in que. Just cracked into a Voodoo last night. That one will take some time. I spent most of last night removing and cleaning parts. I liken it to styrene origami... Lots of interlocking pieces to deal with in the wheel bays. More to follow on that one. Trying to catch up with all my campaign entries at the moment. Thanks again for the kudos. Much appreciated. "Q"
