  1. Superb build & finish of the Marauder, Jan. Weathering is spot-on.

  2. Another fine build of a great medium bomber. Well done and presented Jan. Followed this all the way to the end. Thanks for sharing an outstanding build.


  3. Wow….! An excellent job in 1/72nd scale. I’ve seen 48th examples that weren’t as good (mine leaps to mind). Outstanding, sir.

  4. Really well done Jan. Your rivet work is superb, how did you manage to keep II so consistent in depth.

  5. Well done ,excellent work Jan thanks for taking part.

  6. Nice one Jan, good to see it posted.
    Well done Jan.

  7. Brilliant build Jan. I enjoyed watching it build up in the wip threads.

  8. Great to see this finished, Jan, everything is just right, the build, finish and the photographs, especially the last picture showing all the materials used, very good idea.

  9. Beautiful job, Jan. Being 1/72 makes it even better !

  10. Jan,
    You have done a beautiful job on this. It was worth the wait to see it. Very nice weathering.

  11. Nice Nice Nice A Truly Stunning Finish

  12. A nice finish. I like the weathering and silver pencil . A little goes a long way.

  13. Beautiful job on a great looking aeroplane. Tempted to do one in 1/48 now. 🙂

  14. Nice one! I wonder why the Hasegawa twin bombers are so seldom seen built? I like it a lot, both the subject and your model of it!

    Best regards


  15. Amazing Jan. You have skills!

  16. Jan – love your finish work – great shading and weathering on a nice build! And I’m happy to see another 1/72 amid all the bigger subjects!

  17. Jan, I can’t add anything to what the guys said. Wonderful job, looks “right” all over.
