  1. Great build! Love those tidy little Heller kits! It's funny...even the sort of bow-legged stork-like inter-war designs -- when done by the French -- seem to have a certain trim elegance to them. (Whereas if a company like Blackburn in the UK, or Brewster in the US, built to the same spec, they end up looking like doghouses with wings.) Cheers
  2. Such a different look from the earlier shiny white-winged RCAF 104s! But a beauty nonetheless. Thanks for posting it so we could all enjoy it.
  3. I can never see a Stuka without thinking 'vulture!' Anyhow, you've captured that sinister long-winged shape just beautifully! Really nice work.
  4. That's a jaw-dropper, for sure! Well done
  5. Not a word I use often...but somehow 'spiffy' just popped into my head the instant I saw your build. Really a little jewel! Cheers
  6. Superb work on the vehicle...and those Poilus really look like they mean business! Great project!
  7. Love them all...but especially that super-tasty chopped and channeled '28 Ford! Great stuff!
  8. Superbly impressive, Dave. All the little extra additions and great paintwork really sell the illusion. Great fun to examine closely!
  9. What he said. Freakin' gorgeous! This is one of the most effective all-over weathering jobs I've seen...much the more, considering it's on NMF. Truly stellar work.
  10. You can tell it's a left-handed kajiger, 'cause the whatsit is in metric.
  11. As a great admirer of the nation and her people, it's always great to see anything Finnish being modeled...and this is a hum-dinger! Beautiful work and a lovely Finnish...er, finish. Cheers
  12. Warm welcome aboard from, as it were, an 'ex-colonial'...you'll have a marvelous time here, it's almost like being down at the virtual version of the 'local'...(almost always) minus the innebriated remarks. Cheers
  13. One of my favorites -- ever -- was a great late-'70s British spy series called The Sandbaggers. It was one of the first to show the gritty and bare-knuckles side of that dirty business...complete with sometimes-duplicitous (and often harried) political masters, budget restraints, and the day-to-day reality of hard choices...instead of the gizmos-and-glamor take of James Bond, Man From U.N.C.L.E., etc. As grim as all that sounds...and it frequently is...the excellent writing is intelligent and witty, with frequent doses of black humor. Superb cast headed by Roy Marsden and Ray Lonnen. Not to be missed!
  14. It's funny...my first thought was '1950's comic-book Batmobile.' Superb project, artistically achieved!
  15. Very fine work, indeed! Just a punter's suggestion, particularly for armor models -- more 'ground level' shots, to get the full effect. Cheers
