  1. Spectacular build and presentation...and autographed no less. Bravo!

  2. Good to see your models again Ricardo! Beautiful Scooter!



  3. Fabulous, crisp finish with what feels like just the right amount of weathering. Patches of intense color: red, blue, black really make the model. Bravo!

    Welcome onboard and thanks for sharing

  4. Thank you very much to all for your feedback.
    A pleasure to share with you.

  5. Like the Editor said - crisp finish with the right amount of weathering. Beautiful work on the decals.

    Your countryman Pablo Calcaterra has done a number of models from the Argentine side of the war, with a lot of history I'd never have known otherwise, so I am able to say I do know the significance of this airplane.

  6. Nice model, nicely displayed!
