  1. great this the one you got a week and a half ago...absolutely amazing

  2. That's it ? One picture and one sentence ?

    Come on Tom, it's done and you can copy and paste what you have already written. We would like to see more of it.


  3. A week and a half to build and paint this beauty? Jesus...the least you could have done was presenting us with a shady model 😉 More seriously, the kit looks fantastic but like Louis said, we really want to see more of it Tom.

  4. Man, Speed and quality...Really, really nice, Tom. I'll be looking for more here and on MM.

  5. Looks like a beauty all right...guess I'll have to wait for more pics, though. 🙁
    I don't peruse MM, Hyper-fail or any other forums but this one. And once I reach 100,000 "karma points" (which won't be long now), I shall not be visiting this one, either - just my own self-imposed jumping off point - I don't build any more, so...

    • Leaving at 100,000 karma points? That's like David Ogden's character in Star Trek TNG saying he has to die (as do all his people) on his 69th birthday! Well, if you have to go, let me say thanks for being the first to friend me Craig, you'll be missed (building or not)! You were a great introduction to a nice friendly site! (Remember when you friended me so fast I thought you were the creator of iModeler?)

  6. Damn, that's one nice looking Flying Fortress! Excellent work as always.

  7. Really sharp work Tom! Looking forward to the article.

  8. That's one flash looking fortress Tom. I am really looking forward to seeing the rest of the photos. A week and a half! I couldn't have done that if I had 8 arms.

  9. Oh. Very nice indeed.

  10. I can't believe anyone could build a model in that short a period of time, especially to looks as nicely as this does! I'm looking forward to being able to ogle the details!

  11. You built this in a week? It takes longer than that for the paint to dry on my models. Great looking build. Now all you need to do is build a hangar for it in your living room and you will be all set.

  12. pro·lif·ic
    adjective: prolific
    (of an artist, author, or composer) producing many works.
    "he was a prolific composer of operas"
    An extremely prolific producer of plastic prettiness Mr. Thomas is.
    Scott and Tom been at it a long time now.

  13. Is it better than the Monogram?
