  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. Fine detailing, Ricardo.

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

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

  7. That’s brilliant!
