  5. 1/72 Italeri Macchi C205

    HI My Friend Roman!!! Another impressive addition to the nice models you have built!!! All the build look wonderful...the paint, the build and decals....really a nice build, BUT the most interesting thing that liked a lot to me is the way you made the weathering process on this one, soft and exactly done for my taste, and speaking about the whole build, can say SIMPLY IMPRESSIVE!!! Seem this AMI collection will be growing and for sure will have the great pleasure to watch many more kits dealing with this air arm with that high quality gracing the pages of this respectable and well received site. Thank you very much for sharing!!! Cheers, Luis Alfonso
  6. 1/72 Zvezda Petlyakov Pe-8

    Hi My Friend Roman!!! First: CONGRATULATIONS for this wonderful build!!! SECOND: Its real that with the friendship of many many people here like Jerzy, Mario, You and many more, one is in a trip of getting knowledge that never ends...and I think really this is not only a past time to give the satisfaction of only gluing and fixing plastic parts with glue and embellish them with PE frets, resins and paint...is a real bigger thing that also involves in an educational and culture sharing, friendship, camaraderie and the real pleasure to be in between a great community with wonderful people of the same feeling and the joy to share anything with wonderful people who understands about the theme. About the subject: Is a real wonderful beast that looks wonderful well built as you did!!! I have not knew this aircraft until browsing for other russian subjects something in reference appeared in the search and really the bird looks impressive, I like a huge lot the colorful and vivid mixing of colours, but the very nicest detail is the weathering you have achieved here. In the end, the RUSSIAN MONSTER looks wonderful!!! Thank you very much for sharing, Cheers, Luis Alfonso
  7. Will look for that, maybe there would be a light in the horizon about that...
  8. Hi Jerzy!!! WIll look for that, as this is the really hot point about the building of this kit...as Think is really important to show a nice aircraft with this old but nicer model. Cheers!!! Lusi Alfonso
  9. HI jERZY!!!! SIMPLY WONDERFUL!!! I like this wonderful conversion you have done with this old veteran, I have a vacuform and was thinking what I have to do, maybe this one or look for another by Heller or Airfix bird to work...without a doubt you have great ideas put into practice and for sure a source of inspiration for more than one brave modeler to work like you with finesse and joy. Thank you very much for sharing!!! Cheers, Luis Alfonso
  10. Hi My Friend Jerzy!!!! No, not yet, just advanced to buy the Eastern Express/NOVO/FROG Bleriot XI to at least get the kit and a pair of nice photo etched bicycle wheel detail sets just gathering all the material, all that was essential to go ahead. The only thing that gave me a huge concern is the way the bicycle wheel sets use...so need two kits to take both kit wheels and sand them to leave a flat side and then glue the bicycle wheel detail between two sanded wheels...so I am planning to find some two pair of wheels to use there...wheel I have been reading the GUatemalan Early Aviation History, a big article dealing with the birth and subsequent fights of Guatemalan Airman....and BTW have been discovering many interesting things related with them as there are tales about many old and unknown aircraft types bought at that time apart of the two AVRO 504 and one made in Mexico given as a gift from the neighboring country named there ANAHUAC and here christened as BENITO JUAREZ...and looking for many more info about that time and the pioneers flown Bleriot Moinsant aircraft when Dante Naninni was the teacher here. Cheers, Luis Alfonso
  11. Hi Jerzy!!! Maybe those guys have bought all the moulds too, ....thing that BTW seem a good theme for a thread, maybe one of the Good Guys here can say something about. Cheers!!! Luis Alfonso

    Hi My Friend Jerzy!!! Is better to say good things, give flowers and speak or virtues of the people when is alive, because when go dead is late to say or give anything. I remember have made you many queries and never have received from you or from another of my friends here a bad answer, and that high values people is the thing that makes this site and our wonderful pastime progress!!! Cheers, Luis Alfonso
  14. Hi Pat: I was reading carefully the WIP you have about this wonderful aircraft and have extracted all dealing with the BASIC VACUFORM BUILDING TECHNIQUES AND SECRETS, this thread is a REAL TUTORIAL for anyone interested in this type of modeling. All the hints and tips you have received for this one are highly valuable and will be put in practice as soon I started with the Heinkel. Cheers!!! Luis Alfonso
  15. Hi My Friend JERZY!!!! Will look for them as was looking for another CW 21 to make some mods to get the trainer. Cheers, Luis Alfonso
