  1. DH98 Mosquito BIV 1/48

    Beautifully finished Mossie, and the offset control surfaces add interest! Pity about the silvering on the upperwing roundels… Kind regards, Joachim
  2. Fabulous Tempest! If I hadn't seen that Lesney mark on the inside of the 44 year old port fuselage moulding, I'd hardly have believed the origin. A convincing, and humbling, display of persistence, dedication and modelling skills. Kind regards, Joachim
  3. She's a stunner, from all aspects. Museum quality is a hackneyed phrase; in fact i don't think that I've seen many models of this quality in a museum… Kind regards, Joachim
  4. Dewoitine D.520 1/72 RS Model

    Perfection in Braille scale! I doff my hat in admiration. Kind regards, Joachim
  5. Impeccable build and finish, and the setting elevates it to master class. Compelling illusion of a deck landing. Bravo! Kind regards, Joachim
  6. Stoppel 1/72 KZ VII Laerke

    Unbelievably cute little bird ('Laerke' means lark in Danish, unless I'm mistaken)! And a perfect build – could easily pass for 1:48th. Kind regards, Joachim
  7. Airfix1\72 Spitfire S.31

    Nice PR Mk XIX in Swedish dress, as an S 31 of the F 11 photorecce wing (S for 'Spaning' = reconnaissance). Although admittedly biased, I think that this livery makes the S 31 the most aesthetically pleasing of all Spitfire types. Any particular reason that you overpainted the oblique camera window? Maybe just forgot to remove the masking… ;–) Good finish! Kind regards, Joachim
  8. Magnificent work. And further enhanced by the background story. Superb modelling and ditto dedication. Kind regards, Joachim
  9. 1/72 Planet Models Short SC.1

    This is one of the very best model displays I can remember seeing, ever. Quite apart from the excellent build and finishing, it tells a story: it's obviously a VTOL and, equally obvious, it's a prototype since it's tethered to what looks like a cobbled together, purpose built platform. And all at first glance. Cleverly envisioned, superbly executed. Kind regards, Joachim
  10. Truly great models with humbling attention to detail. The scratched (oops…) canopies do make a world of difference to the overall impression. Inspiring work! Kind regards, Joachim
  11. Very dynamic and effective photo (speaking as an old photographer and aviation nut…)! Model looks quite realistic in that setting – sorry for the poor bloke getting a stalled engine in this situation… ;-) Clever modelling and photography! Kind regards, Joachim
  12. 3 1/72 airfix red arrows

    Very cool display concept, brilliantly executed. Bravo for thinking outside the box! Kind regards, Joachim
  13. 1/48 Airfix P-51D Diablo

    Excellent Mustang! But prop blade were seldom left dirty or scuffed… Kind regards, Joachim
  14. Superb model of the Viggen! She looks just right, with probably the most convincing finish I've ever seen in 1:48th. There's only one Viggen still flying, the AJS 37 of the Swedish Air Force Historic Flight. Watching her take of with zone three lit is just awesome… Impressive modelling! Kind regards, Joachim
  15. It's nugget post such as this one that makes browsing RFI every day well worth the time taken from, er… modelling, and such. A convincing miniature, a creative and highly interesting presentation of a (for me) new way of representing panel joints and, to top it off, a (for me) previously unknown history connected with the project. Top marks on all aspects. Thank you for sharing! Kind regards, Joachim
