  1. - Truly outstanding work - Impressive result
  2. - What else to say ? They just are CATS.......A world in itself we cannot understand, may be is it why we love them so.
  3. DINNER TIME Menu of the day :Steak and french fries Starring : Left Erwin -The alien- Right Roro
  4. -Looks good, deserve to be seen in natural light on a table in a show.....
  5. -Thank you Pete, I understand too well your ordeal, different reasons leads to the same result, fortunatly I still have enough in different show cases to please my eyes and memories - I faced the same problem with Photobucket some years ago so I changed to imageshack and no problems since Thank you for your words , Keep safe my friend - It was the Italeri Kit with scratch made decal scheme and paint
  6. - Good show Jeannot. - I just have an idea for the fun, try a black & white or sepia photo and I'm quite sure it will be very difficult to sort your kit from a photo of real WWII machine
  7. -Thank you my friend for your idea, it's a tip to be kept in mind for the next models I will built. On the other end the age is coming........ - Some models were in boxes for almost 20 years; it is probably why, as they were constantly exposed at rather high temperatures during spring and sommer monthes that made the chips to stick to the varnish. Last sommer, temperature rised 40┬░under shadow for two or three consecutivs days, which means 50┬░+ for the less, under the roof in the attic for hours, the nights being not sufficiently fresh to cool the space. I noticed that matt acrylic paints were more sensitive to this phenomenon than gloss and enamels.
  8. - That 's what I'm doing Werner. with some small problem by the way....... With TRUMPY at rescue - Such is life otf the modeller.......
  9. - Vielen Danke Roman - Your idea of the take away is excellent, I won't have think of it - I have the same philisophy, once my show cases full I used to pack them and to the attic. But the space became limited, and added to this, the problem with polistyrene so the only way was the scrap yard....... As I'm keeping on modelling, so one day or another, I will have to cope with the same problem but I will make your idea in good practice this time ... if you allow it ......
  10. - Thank you my friend , whatever, I keep on modelling
  11. -The froggy is not a seaplane, but a low altitude attack bomber Br 693 according to the characteristic shape of the underside of the visible wing, the seaplane I can't really tell which it is. If it's a twin float it s not a RUFE, it could be the Dewoitine HD 780 seaplane prototype. I had this rather confidential resine from Sinifer -Cheers J.M
  12. - You've got some of them.. - A third Do 335 - No Lysander - -Ju 88G - An Arado 240 - Siebel Si 204 -Arado Ar 68 - (The black thing top left) '-Breguet Br 693 - A doubt about the seaplane possibly an A6M-2N
  13. -Sadly for our old soldiers, there is no such associations in that "such wonderfull" country ...
  14. - I had contemlated to gives them to a museum and had a favorable contact, but the problem was that the kits were packed in fishboxes shifted by polysterene chips but owing to the heat under the roof of the attic in sommer, many of them had adhered to the surfaces of the model requiring repainting and decaling all of the models impacted, so no possibility to expose them or even sell them.
  15. -This is the end.....My only friend ... the end...(A pocalypse now song) - 270 models many of them have been posted here to the scrap yard..... - If I wanted to continue modelling I had to make room in my attic -Sad day...
  16. - My name is Rolo, do you know my ancestor by the name was the first Viking Duke of Normandy well before Duke William ? SO go on with you.......LEAVE US ALONE - That what it seems to say to the disturber by its stare and tip of tongue out......
  17. - What's that strange thing Dad ? Don't be afraid Honey, it's just a scale one model replica.......
  18. - Beautiful demonstration of the mastery of the airbrush by Mr Jean .......
  19. - NO computer work to day......
  20. - My "Grand children" - Doudou and Mary-mimine enjoying the sofa after a difficult working day... - These ones are my daughter's ones - Hence my grand-children...
  21. -My I introduce you baby TRUMPY , an disabled one eyed outdoor kitten brought here by its mother. It own its nickname to the lock of yellow hair between its ears. - Few days later another one well conformed brother; with the same lock ,was knocking at our door, by analogy we named it BoJo.......(Please excuse me my English friends) Now it has grown with our help it is a youngster a bit weak, but unfortunatly we cannot add it to the family To the great pleasure of Sir Scotty and Miss Vera attending tenderly the street show
  22. - It s the 04/30 ( Commemorative day of Camerone Battle of the Foreign Legion) and First of May. -This battle could be compared to El Alamo battle for the Texan with the same results for the besieged - Since every 30th of April there is a big traditionnal commemorativ ceremony in every Foreign Legion Regiments
