  1. Very pretty charismatic aircraft.

    Best regards, Vlad.

  2. ouah really impressive build ! good job

  3. Magnificent build there Hans.
    A very nice build,

  4. I'm in awe...I'd go blind, cripple and crazy tryin' to do sumthin' like that! You must have patience of Job. You certainly have the talent, though. A fantastic job, sir.

  5. Stunning Hans. I have to agree with Craig. A build like this would drive me nuts.

  6. The amount of rigging on this model is astounding. It would be interesting to learn about your technique - have you drilled through the wings, or glued in place etc.

    Anyway, congratulations to the great result!

      I drill 0.20 mm holes and pull the thread through glues and filling it, after it is painted with Color.
      Regards Hanspeter

  7. Wow, im with Craig on this one beautifully done Hans

  8. Marvelous build, Hans Peter.

  9. Wow. Incredible at 1/72 and as others have said, the rigging job must have been a challenge. Very nice, and way beyond my abilities. Thanks for the photos.

  10. Having built one of this company's kits in this scale (Caproni - images posted elsewhere) I can say that a kit of this scale and type are not for the faint-hearted. As you can read in the comments, WWI builds of this quality are always popular here. Well done.

  11. Nice clean build of a not so common kit.

  12. Incredible, and in 1/72!

  13. Great build of a rare aircraft. Those early aviation subjects always fascinates me!
    I would have used thinner monofilament for the rigging, but thats just me.
    I have a question regarding the chorozny model bud kits as a whole. How do you found this kit of a quality perspective? I'm considering if I should get their Taube or wait someone (WnW hopefully) to produce one in styrene 🙂

    Best regards,

      Hello Alexander, I say once and never such a kit, the quality of her I can say no thank you. This is my opinion

  14. Hans,

  15. quite fabulous

  16. Outstanding, Hans. VERY nicely done!
