  3. Superb build there Tolga.

  4. Different and beautiful ! Good job, Tolga.

  5. Stellar workmanship as usual, sir...I envy your talent(s) and tenacity.

  6. Beautiful as usual, and nice to see it in this rather uncommon camouflage scheme!



  7. The build looks wonderful. The cockpit looks great with the detail added and nicely highlighted as well. The first thing I noticed in the headline photo was the two lighter green spots on the fuselage. Great detail, you explained, of the order to overpaint the unit markings. Small detail that adds a lot to the story of the model and the real aircraft.

  8. Really impressive build, how do you bring out the panel lines so well?

  9. What a beautiful build of a beautiful bird. Such crisp paint work - I hope you are really proud of this one.

    Emil 'Bully' Lang in addition to his impressive score also holds the record of victories per day : 18 !

  10. Scarily awesome Tolga. I really like these Hasegawa 190 kits.

  11. It's a fookin' masterpiece, Tolga! You build everything to such a high standard it's hard to say one is better than the other, but this just might manage to stand out as The Best Yet.

  12. Tolga, you are killing me! Such Great work on an awesome subject...I'm working on a A-5 now and your camo scheme has tipped the scales to finishing it off in an Eastern Front JG 54 Grun hertz machine. Thank you for the inspiration!

  13. Truly the work of a Master Builder!

  14. Thanks a lot for the nice comments.

  15. Let me join the chorus of "Well Done!"
