  1. Reinhard,
    Excellent work, particularly the weathering.

  2. Very lovely! Israeli markings on NMF always look fantastic.

  3. An impressive build, great looking scheme!

  4. Good to see another intelligent convert to Vallejo metal paints! The Aluminum looks good.

    Beautiful work on this. The kit is a great basis for a super model, as is demonstrated here.
