  1. Bf 109:s are a dime a dozen per se, but models of this amazing quality definitely aren't. She looks just 'right', ready to fly off. Impressive. Kind regards, Joachim
  2. Fabulous representation of SAAB's ultra secret A-bomber project. So highly classified was the A 36 project, that it's alleged that not even SAAB's CEO Tryggve Holm was aware of it! Apparently, the engine was to have been the British Olympus that powered the Vulcan and the Concorde. Your model is so convincing, Björn, that it takes an effort to realise that it didn't have a corresponding full size original. Kind regards, Joachim
  3. It's a bit of a visual shock, seeing a Hurricane in wolf's clothing like that! Interesting one-off and a very neat representation. Kind regards, Joachim
  4. Very effective Henschel Hs 129 B-2 portrayal, and the squiggle camo really sets it apart. Kind regards, Joachim
  5. Fantastic project and what a beautiful end result! Also a timely reminder that not many decades ago, wood was the medium for modelling… Impressed no end by this model! Kind regards, Joachim
  6. Really neat Messerschmitt! The discreet weathering dots the i. Kind regards, Joachim
  7. Good Spitfire in interesting markings! Flooding the panel joints with black doesn't quite help the overall impression, though… ;-) Really neat job apart from that! Kind regards, Joachim
  8. Very good looking Spitfire indeed! The story of William Dunn is quite interesting, I found when asking my friend Mr. Google to provide some information: http://warfarehistorynetwork.com/daily/wwii/william-r-dunn-eagle-squadron-pilot/ Recommended reading. Kind regards, Joachim
  9. Wonderfully neat and interesting rendering of a machine that wouldn't have won any prizes for beauty. Kind regards, Joachim
  10. That's a jaw dropper if I ever saw one. Just the rigging is just unbelievable! When I saw the overview pics, I thought – this must have taken a lot of patience. But the I saw the close-ups of turnbuckles and the other fittings and realised that the rigging is firmly in the masochist domain. The I felt a great relief that I'm not into pre-1920:s aviation… Huge respect! Kind regards, Joachim
  11. That's a great Mustang – almost thought it was 1:48th before re-checking the title! Guess modelling is like riding a bike – once you've learnt how, it's difficult to unlearn, even after many years… ;-) Kind regards, Joachim
  12. Really nice looking Spitfire, and good photography, too! Kind regards, Joachim
  13. Very neat and colourful Dewoitine! According to legendary Captain Eric Brown, who test flew virtually everything with wings during and after WW II: “It was a nasty little brute. Looked beautiful but didn't fly beautifully. Once you get it on the ground, I was told not to leave the controls until it was in the hangar and the engine stopped. You could be taxiing toward the hangar and sit back when suddenly it would go in a right angle.” So, "the French Spitfire" is perhaps a bit of a misnomer… ;-) Kind regards, Joachim
  14. A truly harming model of a fighter with a special character! Kind regards, Joachim
  15. Excellent looking Spitfires! Minor gotcha: they wouldn't have been sporting aerial wires. From the Mk V on, Spits hade VHF radio sets with the antenna integral to the aerial post. ;-) Classy job! Kind regards, Joachim
