  1. Tom. you're an animal! Fantastic rendition of "Gelbe 10" and the paint job looks more accurately rendered than the recently refurbished museum piece. I suppose it must be up in Seattle now after the wing swap.

    • It is up at the Museum of Flight. That paint scheme they did sure had Jerry Crandall shaking his head, he worked with them closely and they still turned it into a cartoon.

      I did this one the way the original was painted. Overall 75/76, then aplied the JG 26 Reichverteidigung bands, then the decals, then airbrushed the camo colors on around the markings. For those who think a Paasche H is "passe," all these models are painted with my Paasche H.

      As far as "being an animal," it's just 15 years worth of pictures I never dumped out of my computer after doing the reviews.

  2. Nice work, TC...and better photography as well. Good job.
