  1. In terms of weathering this is one of the best Fw 190 I've ever seen in any scale. Even the grease stains on the main gear covers look spot on. Did you work with oils or ready to use-products? Build and paintwork are splendid, too!
  2. That is some uncommon stuff. I really like it! The crane looks totally "Ostblock", you have to love that.
  3. That is a beautiful work of art. The dymamic pose of the figure, the weathering of the halfway rotten machine, the bird... -what is there not to like? I can only gratulate!
  4. That combination of colours is a bit of intoxicating. What a blue! A classy way to finish your modeling year. Guten Rutsch!
  5. What a nice finish. More and more of Eduard's new 190s are surfacing in the forums. They made me buy the Royal Edition three weeks ago; can't wait to start with it. Just a small observation: Your dad forgot to paint the fuselage guns.
  6. Tamiya Steyr 1500 1/48

    A lovely little vignette you show us here, Christian. I really like it!
  7. 1/48 Aussie Eight Dual Spitfires

    Great looking couple with a nice contrast between them!
  8. As always a flawless result, Matthias! I like the restrained chipping on the wings with its low contrast. The dust on the wheels looks a bit reddish on the pics, but that may be the lighting. What are your impressions on the buildability of the kit?
  9. What can I say? I finally found someone who I can blame for buying that beautiful kit. The weathering blends perfectly into the paint scheme, the construction is clean and flawless. With a ten months old kid around this is a remarkable achievement. Congratulations!
  10. That GAU spits out some soot, that's for sure. The A-10 is one of my fovourites, so I'm tuned in.
  11. Nice to see you doing a Würger again. I built the Egon Mayer markings of that kit, cause I liked the Höhenjäger intakes on the cowling. Mayer tested them against high altitude flying bombers and wasn't that impressed. Only three prototypes were deployed.
  12. Now you have my attention, Andy. The Karaya kit is waiting in my stash along with half a dozen Eduard Würger. They're not the easyest kits but when you finished one successfully you're hooked. I really enjoyed building my A-5. Nice to see your well executed renditions in the gallery. Thank you for sharing!
  13. Funny that you're mentioning the instructions as the only letdown of the kit. Actually they're the only part made by Kinetic. The whole kit development was made by 'Aviation Art', but due to some problems with their partners, Kinetic ended up producing the kit. Your definitions of the kit looks splendid. Great paintwork, especially the heat stains on the burner cans. Also the fading of the camo looks just right. What a pity that this beautiful plane had such a short period of service.
  14. Kitty Hawk Su-22 Fitter

    That really is the Shi**y Hawk kit? Wow, you made the best of it, no doubt. What stands out for me is the diversity in the paint work with all the touch ups and fadings. Very well done, Muzz!
  15. SU-11

    Oh boy, she's a beauty! That's a very convincing finish, the stressed skin beneath the cockpit looks great. And, as mentioned above, the photography is splendid.
