  1. Superb model of a cropduster that I'd never heard of. Kind regards, Joachim
  2. Hm – "This image is currently Unavailable". Please try again! It's not fair that only exdraken should enjoy your build! Kind regards, Joachim
  3. A superb FW 190. Everything looks just right – the restrained but effective weathering, the painted markings. An impressive lesson in modelling for realism! Kind regards, Joachim
  4. Excellent Olympia – perfectly built and finished! Kind regards, Joachim
  5. Very neat OH-13/Bell 47 chopper, and the hinted-at setting really makes it stand out. It's not you fault, nor Italeri's, that the styrene injection technique isn't able to reproduce the fineness of the truss tail. For that matter, the alternative method, flat etched metal, doesn't really look like the original pipework either. Considering these almost impossible to overcome hurdles, you have created a most excellent Braille scale replica of this trailblazing helicopter! Kind regards, Joachim
  6. Truly excellent modelling and the last, atmospheric photo is very convincing. Reminds me of Derek Robinson's 'A good, clean fight'. Kind regards, Joachim
  7. What a beauty! It would look right at home in a museum. Kind regards, Joachim
  8. Impressive model of a helicopter that I haven't seen before. Kind regards, Joachim
  9. Great idea, the 'then' and (almost) 'now'! Excellent models, too (now that I can see them)! Kind regards, Joachim
  10. Welcome back to modelling with this impressive Friedrich! The figure adds a lot to the overall impression, too. IMHO, though, the model looks over-weathered, especially the dark airbrushing over each and every panel joint. And the dark shading of the fabric covered control surfaces, indicating surface sag, is quite misplaced. In reality, linen fabric is doped taut as a drumhead and the 'shading' detracts from realism instead of enhancing it. All IMHO, of course. Kind regards, Joachim
  11. Sorry, no photo visible here. The link doesn't work either. Kind regards, Joachim
  12. Stunningly attractive model of this elegant design! Kind regards, Joachim
  13. Looks like a beautiful model. Half the number of photos of twice the size would have given a better view of your masterpiece, though. Kind regards, Joachim
  14. As near a perfect '09 as I've seen – impressive, subtle work! Kind regards, Joachim
  15. Wood, cardboard, paper, metal, whatever… a beautiful model of an elegant design! Kind regards, Joachim
