  1. Stunning example, sir….very nicely finished and photographed. The small-ish scale makes your work even more impressive.

  2. THAT’S 1/72!
    I’m selling my stuff, and taking up watercolors.

  3. Very nice, particularly in 1/72.

    One small technical bit: in almost all aircraft production lines in any country, the movable surfaces (flaps/slats/ailerons/elevators/rudders) are attached to the airframe after painting. Only when the airplane is painted “in the field” do you see the forward section of a movable surface unpainted (I learned this researching the field-applied camouflage of the 78th FG P-47s). Noting this isn’t a criticism of your excellent model; it’s information not a lot of people have and is passed on to increase the general knowledge.

  4. That’s stunning detailing work indeed! Glad to see your work back, thanks for sharing

  5. Wow – stunning build. Another 1/72 hero to look up to! Great work.
