"The response to my group build has been staggering." @dlee
Here's the most recent masterpiece from Bill Bosworth. A 1/32 scratchbuilt D3A-1 Val dive bomber. Done as one of the Vals that was shot down at Pearl Harbor.

Lots of work went into this (stating the obvious, of course). Very nice bit of scratchbuilding. I'm too lazy for that much effort! I don't mind having to add a few things onto a kit, but to start out from "nothing" would just take too much coffee!
I think THIS is the right forums to let us know more about Bill´s stunning works as there are : DC-3, SM 79, Super Constellation and and and...
Doesn't "Bos" understand that this kind of thing cannot be done?
Awesome work, Bill.
That's why he does it. 🙂
What makes me sad is that this is the ONLY 1/32 Val I have seen. Absolutely beautiful work and such an important plane yet never done in 1/32 (or the Val, Judy or Jill). Please tell us how you did it so we may in our own crude way attempt replication.
So far as I know, it starts with making a wooden master, then vacuforming over it.
