  1. Damn….I gotta find a new hobby. Either that or stop postin’ MY excuse for models. OR – keep studying builds like yours for inspiration and try to do better. You certainly have a gift, Tolga….exceptional craftsmanship.

  2. Another boringly wonderful model Tolga. 🙂

  3. I really cant say enough good things about the finish on all your work Tolga. It’s a personal goal of mine to just get at least one kit to look as well as yours!

  4. Boring ….as in another Ten. Some one break this mans hands. Excellent work and finish.

  5. Another great one! I like it a lot!


  6. Thanks for your comments 🙂

  7. Tolga .. Craig said it all .. I am almost ashamed to even post ANY of my works in here, after seeing what you have accomplished … you do very professional “work” … from details, weathering, decals, photography of models, explaining things .. INSPIRING to us all … a TRUE “top-notch”, 1st rate modeler !!!!!
