  1. A work of love if I ever saw one, and 'Pips' Priller is certainly a most worthy paragon. Only the shallow depth of field in some photos reveal that the model might not be 1:48, after all… Inspirational work! Kind regards, Joachim
  2. Great build of an iconic airplane! How I wish that AZ Models' horrible 1:48th caricature had at least been a little bit accurate, in some parts… I guess I have to try to hunt down an Airshow Models kit. Beautiful modelling! Kind regards, Joachim
  3. Junkers Ju-88 A-1

    Excellent model, looking just 'right'. Kind regards, Joachim
  4. Fabulous model! My first airplane, when I was twice your age, didn't look half as good. Good work! Kind regards, Joachim
  5. Albatros DVa

    She wouldn't look out of place in a museum. Elegant! I wish I could become interested in WWI machinery. Such character… Beautiful modelling! Kind regards, Joachim
  6. 3 RECENT 1/48s...

    The Ki-44 is my favourite, too – the finish looks very realistic. The '09 is nice too – pity about the cockpit hood… ;-) The Finnish Hurricane looks great, although I think that those bright silver splotches don't look anything like scuff marks – they'd need to be much more subtle and 'organic', if you will. On the whole, really good work, and especially on the Jap! Kind regards, Joachim
  7. Whirlybird 1/72 Avro 707C

    A great build and, in its simplicity, an evocative and topical base for it. Good modelling! Kind regards, Joachim
  8. Looks excellent! It would've been nice to see more of the model and less of the wood… ;-) Kind regards, Joachim
  9. Superb models, as usual. Bra[vo]! What can be better than two Draken? Fyrgrupp… ;-) Kind regards, Joachim
  10. Very neat Spitfire indeed! And the drooping elevators are a neat point adding that typical character. The 'scuffing' on the port wing root doesn't look very convincing, though. It looks more like someone scraped off paint with a sharp tool, rather than accumulated scuffing of many shoes and boots over time. Kind regards, Joachim
  11. Airfix Focke-Wulf 190 F-8 1/72

    Ambitious build and very good looking camouflage! It pays to be anal about geometry, though – the head-on photo shows the wheels tilted at different angles… ;-) Good work on the cammo – keep at it! Kind regards, Joachim
  12. Westland whirlwind 1/48

    That's a neat Whirlwind! The figures are nice, too, although you seem very fond of them in particular – five pics, no less, of which two are duplicates? I agree about the national markings being too scruffy – not very plausible, I think. Also, prop blades seldom have patches of paint missing – at the most, in normal use, a hint of metal showing on the extreme leading edge. Otherwise – nice modelling! Kind regards, Joachim
  13. Inspiring build! Like the others, I have a hard time believing it's 1/72 scale. Perfect rigging, too! Superior modelling. Kind regards, Joachim
  14. I like helicopters generally and yours looks excellent, must say. You should have deleted that last, blurry photo, though. It compromises the others. Good modelling. Helicopters rule! Kind regards, Joachim
  15. Amazing skills and perseverance in evidence! That rigging alone is just mindblowing… Superb work. Kind regards, Joachim
