GUEST GALLERY: "Rust & Bones" 1/35 by RICK LAWLER

Rick is one of those few modelers that need no introduction, but what you maybe didn´t know is that he is perfectly capable of making one of his masterpieces not only with tanks and figures but also with flying machines. As usual Rick uses a high level of inspiration to create his works: 

One evening while surfing the web I stumbled upon a gallery of photos showing abandoned Russian helicopters; parked and left to the elements in what appears to be inner-city parking lots.  The thought of all of that high-tech hardware simply "put out to pasture" is quite mind-boggling if you think about it.  Cold war weapons reduced to discarded carcasses of aluminum and fading paint.  And there is the key, the faded paint!!  The colors and patina exhibited on these forgotten beasts is amazing – yes, in my case irresistible.

In my opinion, this is one of the best weathered models I´ve  ever seen, no doubt. And you?
