  1. You have to fly pretty low for that cherry blossom camo to be effective… Beautiful model! Kind regards, Joachim
  2. Superb model of arguably the most stylish and elegant biplane ever. Kind regards, Joachim
  3. Great looking warbird! And for once, the red crowbar is entirely correct, as is the beautifully shiny finish… Kind regards, Joachim
  4. That's an inventive and successful rescue operation! At first glance, I thought that your Draken's stance looked a bit unusual. It's because of the slightly backward tilting, custom built nosegear – IRL, it's tilted a bit forward, like so: Nice work, giving a Draken a new lease of life! Kind regards, Joachim
  5. Lovely little plane, and ditto model (of course) … tubby but still graceful looking. Kind regards, Joachim
  6. Many thanks for the elucidation, Michael! Hardly a digression, though, since Thorfinn's great looking model has what seems to be a rather exaggerated portrayal of sagging fabric covering of the elevators and rudder. Kind regards, Joachim
  7. Oh, really? All? Metal frames, of course, but the model has at least what looks like fabric covered elevators. The rudder would also have been fabric covered, wouldn't it? I'm no U.S. 'tween the wars pundit, as you apparently are, but when I look at photos I'm not so sure about the ailerons. On Udet's Goshawk in the Krakow museum the ailerons do indeed look metal skinned with no hint of ribs, but maybe that was a custom job for Ernst U? Anyway, as far as I can see, these ailerons do look fabric covered: But what do I know… Kind regards, Joachim
  8. Superb model of my favourite airplane, all categories. Good to see the initial, non-pressurised product run represented, too. I still can't quite accept that it isn't the 1:48th kit… Kind regards, Joachim
  9. Beautiful Taube! And the tailplane rigging looks 'interesting'. Skilful modelling! Kind regards, Joachim
  10. The pics seem to be in 1:288th scale – difficult to see anything on thumbnails… Kind regards, Joachim
  11. Excellent model of a frequently overlooked Heinkel! And it sits really well in the atmospheric diorama. Excellent and ambitious modelling! Kind regards, Joachim
  12. A real beauty! And an excellent example of how just one well placed figure and a few accessories can add 'life' to a diorama base. Excellent modelling. Kind regards, Joachim
  13. Very neat looking Würger, and a great collection! Incidentally, Josef Priller's nickname was "Pips" – no English genitive apostrophe involved. Nice modelling! Kind regards, Joachim
  14. No pictures visible –latest Firefox, Mac OS 10.14.6…
