  1. Hello Goon, Nice representation of the real Lynx. I like the Armada livery. Regards, Orion / The Netherlands.
  2. pre war Silver walrus

    Hello Invidia, Prewar color scheme looks alright for me. Very brisk finish. Regards, Orion / The Netherlands.
  3. Hello Sniper, Job well done. Airfix is on the right track for us modelers. Regards, Orion / The Netherlands.
  4. Hello Arkady, Some scratch building. Almost the whole model is scratch. Master modeler. It looks fantastic. Regards, Orion / The Netherlands.
  5. Hello Habu, Thanks for sharing this excellent build with us. Being a Dutchmen, it is always good to see aircraft form the Royal Netherlands Naval Air Arm. It operated from the Dutch carrier Karel Doorman Interesting to notice, at that time aircraft had a life expectancy of 6 to 10 years. These days fighters have a life expectancy of around 25 to 30 years. For more pictures see: http://www.vlaggeschipsmaldeel5.nl/html/hawker_seafury_aan_boord_1.html Regards, Orion.
  6. Hello JWM, Interesting subject. Turned into a excellent model. Can you imagine the backdrop in technology with the German Luftwaffe. Regards, Orion.
  7. Hello HL, Considering it is the old Revell kit, you did turn it into one of the best K2 I have ever seen on the web. It looks ready to be towed into the RAF Museum. I go back to the pics again for another check. Looking forward to the K2 Airfix example in September. Regards, Orion / The Netherlands.
  8. Yet another Nimrod

    Hello Bentwater, Thanks for sharing this Sub Hunter with us. Even OOB it looks just great. Regards, Orion
  9. Excellent Sabre, with a very difficult paint scheme, but finished to perfection. My compliments, Orion.
  10. ISW I/350 San Jose

    Hello Raider, Interesting subject. These kind of models are not shown completed very often. (At least in Europe) You did construct a good replica of this ultra extreme important ship. No battle without supply's. (The famous fleet train) Regards, Orion
  11. Hello tristan, This submarine deserves a place in the FGN museum. As mentioned above, this must be one of the best results I have ever seen. Even Revell should capture these images for promotion of the model. Regards, orion.
  12. Great build and superb presentation. Regards, Orion
  13. Hello Andrew, Superb finish for a 1/700 scale build. Looking at this complex structure, it must have been top heavy by heavy sea state. I can understand very well, these kind of models take "a little bit" longer to complete. Regards, Orion.
  14. Hello Koppa, Master modeler. That's my verdict. It shows the new environment regulations clearly. The commander of this ship would have been fired forty years ago, but these days most warships look like this model in reality. This model is ready for the USN Naval Museum. It is a master piece. Regards, Orion / The Netherlands.
  15. Hello Thorfinn, Good to see the old and reliable AB-204 in 1/72 scale. Especially the Dutch version has my attention. Did sterling service for the Dutch Naval Aviation for over fifteen years. Your models look fantastic. Thanks for sharing. Regards, Orion
