    The Eduard cockpit realy brings a live to the model, very nice!

  2. Beautifully done, and that instrument panel is awesome!

  3. Lovely Invader, and great detail work on the interior. Really nice.

  4. Impressive work as usual, sir...very nice indeed.

  5. Very tidy, might have to move one closer to the top of the to do pile after seeing this.

  6. Great looking build of a great looking aircraft!

  7. Excellent! Now, tell me again, what's wrong with the Monogram kit? Looks every bit an Invader!

    • I am with you on that Bowman, It sure do, though there is a shape issue on the fuselage that really is not a deal killer, There is no perfect kit, I am sure there will be one that will say otherwise. Regardless I have built it and have 2 more. It's your choice. Don't let the negative waves of haters keep you from building it. As you can this fine example builds up to an excellent Invader. ICM is supposedly to release a new mold A/B-26 sometime this year.

  8. Once again Tolga an excellent piece. Taking another Monogram kit and showing us how good they can be when you just build it with some extra care. Already with nice details provided in the kit, enhancing the cockpit and IP just pops. And extra special, in bare metal finish, well done!

  9. Superb looking Invader. One of the best Monogram A-26 builds I've ever seen. Having built two of these, I agree, with a bit of care and lots of patience, they can be turned into a very fine representation of a B or C as you have demonstrated here.

    I am looking forward to see what ICM comes up with as it would be nice to have a new tool 1:48 Invader kit that is up today's standards.

  10. Outstanding Invader, Tolga!

  11. Wonderful looking plane. I echo the comments posted above.

  12. 🙂 … Greetings … 🙂 :
    Good work Tolga, forget about the raised details, this Invader looks just great and the markings really do set her apart.

  13. Thanks for your comments.

  14. Lovely work Tolga, Cockpit and interior work looks fantastic. I like the shades of aluminium you've added on the wings too. Must be big in 1/48.
