  1. Nice Clean Build, Igor how did you like the Akan paints ?


  2. Lots of work gone into this model, Igor, very impressive, but we really need more pictures!

  3. Very nice work, and I echo Mark Housley. I'd like to try them as they seem to airbrush well.

  4. Igor,
    Nicely done.

  5. Thanx guys! I liked Akan paints, but their smell is almost unbereable... 🙂

  6. Outstanding build of outstandingly awful kit, I like your paintjob, Cerni :)!
