  1. Very nice build. The Defiant is definitely an interesting concept. One of my earlier builds was a 1/72 version painted just like yours.

  2. Extremely nice job - ugly air frame in my opinion - but an extremely nice build.

  3. excellent build, I love it !

  4. Sharp! It really stands out in the pics.

  5. Very neat work, and a good looking aeroplane!

  6. Your Defiant looks very convincing. Thanks for sharing this with us.

  7. Simply beautiful Michal. Have just bought this kit; I hope it turns out as nicely as yours. Beautiful pictures too; nice & clear, good colour & sharp as a pin. Thanks for the inspiration.

  8. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder...this kit looks like it belongs on a box top or on the cover of a hard copy magazine. Better yet, it found it's way on the cover of Nothing short of "Professional" Michal. This what modelers envision/dream/inspire to do when starting a kit.
    Two thumbs up.

  9. Michael, beautiful work and model! I'm hoping for another "also ran", 48th Battle from Airfix, as well.
