Your painting and finishing skills (what am I saying? I mean all your modelling skills) are just exquisite G.  As is the Stuka (obvs.....) 😀

Thank you Steve, much appreciated :thumbsup:

The new racks were a very useful addition to the my workspace, worth every penny (even considering the extra costs due to the Brexit... ). Thank you for your comment :thumbsup:

Picchiatello, you're right there CC :D  Thanks for the praise, mate :thumbsup:

 

The Corsair is climbing up the pile, but not there yet :winkgrin: 

 

As for the Phantom.... I haven't quite made up my mind yet, but it's the Finemolds kit for sure. Then I have this other idea that I'm still pondering (and you of all are maybe the one who can guess what kind of idea it is... :winkgrin:)

Giorgio, joining the chorus of accolades for this spectacular build--for some reason I am really drawn to the bomb trapeze and radiator flap actuators--in an epic build of a tough airplane, they really seem to make the technology of the era pop--well done :clap:best, Erwin

Excellent build Giorgio. Looking forward to seeing her in RFI.

 

Maybe a "J" version ?

Steve's so right.

I've run out of ways to rearrange that same set of words into an original sentence on all your builds Giorgio.

Living colour is what you do!

I guess you'll have to wait, CC... :whistle:  :D  

 

BTW: I think Betty Lou has the short cannon fairing, while the kit I have has the regular one
