Hoverjet (Big Chief Scale)

This is an old model that I've never shared here. As you can see I rarely 'finish' my models, once I've got the geometry sorted out I tend to move on to whatever's next.

Thanks chaps for your kind words.
I don't currently have an indoor space which allows me to sand/paint etc AND stay married so everything goes on hold over the winter.
I have been struggling as well to find a way to model the quilted vinyl seat covers but think I can probably use silk clay in a mould for this; the pic shows my experiments with Cosclay, Fimo Leather and Silk Clay pressed into a 3D printed mould.

Thanks Kevin; You can still see the layer lines from the 3D print on the clay surface but it doesn't spoil the effect too much. Silk Clay does shrink significantly as it drys (up to about 25%) so you have to leave it for a few days before cutting to shape. It stays reasonably flexible, a bit like stiff cardboard, it will take a light sanding and can be painted with acrylics.
Cosclay stays very flexible but produced odd surface imperfections during baking, it was also quite difficult to get out of the mould.
Fimo leather was a non starter because the leather effect reappears on the surface once its out of the mould.
