  1. Rare type, nice work, fine details.
    Interesting to compare the finnish winter-Camouflage with the hungarian 109 presented by Csaba.

  2. Dale, it seems you have a soft spot for unusual planes, after that Avia, the Fokker.
    This one is a great looking model, it captures well the ungainly design and the camouflage the Finns used. That Vacuform open panel is something else. Splendid work

  3. Very nicely done. I have one to build. Better get into it. I'm just doing the Dutch version.

  4. That's the old Classic Airframes kit SH did and then released under their own name. A little mother bear to construct, even with a plastic interior rather than the photoetch interior the original kit had. So serious congratulations for creating this victory over plastic. It looks great!

  5. Thanks to all for the comments!

  6. Dale, very nicely done, your paint work looks excellent !

  7. Wow, that really looks nice Dale. Well done, especially the open cockpit.

  8. Looks great! Love the details you added to it, and the paintwork and finishing are very nice.

  9. Well done on a rarely seen subject
