  1. Fantastic build sir, you got that "sun faded" look spot on.
    Well done mate.

  2. Stunning build and photography as usual, sir...very nice.

  3. A very nice looking Widow maker. Very nice weathering.

  4. A masterpiece build of a old kit….well done sir.

  5. I always thought this group looked really cool with those big tail numbers, and you've done a very nice job on this this. nice work Tolga !

  6. Always nice to see that big 1st Lt. killer. I have an affinity for the 26.

  7. I say it every time I see one of of these great Monogram kits built, they still hold up with the best of them! You did a great job on a difficult kit, the B-26 is a bit of a challenge as I recall, but you nailed it!

  8. Outstanding build with excellent weathering and detail work...very nicely done.

  9. Convincing build of a classic kit, the finish is especially worthy of praise.

  10. Tolga,

    Loving this a/c as I do, having built this Monogram kit, and following your WIP, I can only add to what has already been said that this is a great build. However, I must go further and give you my whole hearted praise on the job you did with this. Monogram did a marvelous contribution when they brought out this kit but it is not the easiest kit to build. They did a great job with it and replicated a very historic a/c but it shows it's age. One could only wish that Tamiya or Hasagawa would do it in 1/48. Editorial aside, this is a definite compliment to your skills.

  11. Thank you for your comments

  12. Have to repeat Frank's comments: you've done it again! Having built this kit waaay back I can appreciate the hard work (and the result too). Did you do a complete re-scribe?

  13. Fantastic work Tolga! That really inspires this old guy to get started on a couple of my WWII Twins. Beautiful indeed.
