Oh I'm loving that! I've long been tempted by this kit, you might have pushed me over the edge.

What a wonderful looking model.  Sharp edges on the paint overall and the canopy marking is some of the best I've ever seen.  Looking forward to seeing more of your builds.

Beautiful rendition of a unique aircraft!

 

English speakers tend toward feminising machines, refering to them as 'she', but since 'she' is next to different makes and models of aircraft I'd call them 'cousins' at best.:pilot:

Not realy. All difficulties were caused by my mistakes or morbid detailing )

Kit itself is rather good for short runs.

Did you really use wooden propellers?

)) Oil paint over acrylic. Works fine.

Beautiful model, Sasha! Nice scratchbuilding details and you did a great job on the wooden props. Excellent finish, and the silver doped undersides were perfectly done! Gorgeous model of a very weird but pretty good flying airplane! Well done! I hope my 1/72 kit comes out half as good as your 1/48 one!

Wow!  A simply stunning model of this fascinating aircraft.  A beautiful paint finish and great detail painting, especially the wood grain on the propellers.
