  1. That grau-grun on grey mottling is beautiful and catches the eye.I love the bulky A4 more than the langnase and you really got your weathering right.
    I give you a gold medal for this one. Bravo !

  2. Pristine build. The 190 is always a popular subject here.

  3. Beautiful job. And I agree the A’s beat the D’s! Although 190s are just brilliant subjects all round. You’ve done justice to a great plane!

  4. I forgot to add – great presentation – very nice photography!

  5. Yeah….what they said, Michal…!

  6. Very nice – another great clean build. I too prefer the chunkier A’s to the D’s – looks more muscular! Great job on the mottles – not always easy to get looking good.

  7. Very nice work and a great result.

  8. Well, someone has to say it; you guys are just wrong and the Dora is a far more beautiful airplane. There. Said it.
    Having said that, this is a first class butcher bird, Michal. Amazing artwork.

  9. Michal, This a good example on how to take a blah color scheme and make it look nice, Well done !

  10. Very nice. I’m doing this one as Faber’s aircraft in British colours and markings

  11. Beautiful, crisp, clean build. a real beauty.
    Excellent job Michal

  12. Wonderful…………………… everything about it………….. 🙂

  13. Yep, like the rest of the guys have already said, simply excellent, clean build. You’ve really made that mottle ‘live’.

    Ian.
