  1. Excellent results on that paint-chipping, Christopher and welcome aboard..!

  2. Great painting. Just the right amount of chipping. Good work.

  3. Excellent build, the weathering looks very realistic and takes away any scale impression. Congrats, achieving this result in 1/72 isn’t easy, even more in such tiny plane

  4. Looks great. the weathering is really nice. Welcome aboard...I think you'll like this group.

  5. Nicely done Christopher, great looking model. And welcome to the finest modelling site on the web, you'll enjoy it here.

  6. Cheers for a successful 1st post with an aircraft that demonstrates great weathering and chipping skills. Great for a 1st or last attempt...basically u got it right! Love this little plane. Looks so much bigger in the pictures then only 1/72. Captured the spirit of this sturdy scrappy little fighter.

  7. Very nice work on that, with a realistic result. Welcome aboard!

  8. Nice! And welcome.

  9. Nicely done Christopher especially at 1/72 scale great to have you on board.

  10. Excellent work! The paint and chipping look fantastic. I'm just getting ready to attempt something similar on a 1/72 Pe-2, and will use your effort for some ideas. And welcome aboard!
