  1. That is a terrific model. I finished one recently, and it tried to finish me! Great work!

  2. That's a work of art! Well done indeed.

  3. That is simply STUNNING, very nicely done. I often see natural metal models, and they seem either toy like or the silver looks overly grainy, you have managed to get an incredible finish. Your silver is not as shiny as the live picture but the weathering makes it seem just right. Your presentation is very nice, shows off the aircraft in a realistic setting and adds much interest to an all ready beautiful subject.

  4. Very well done, as a self proclaimed Monogram fanatic I heartily approve!

  5. Excellent! Great work.

  6. Very well done. The F-80 didn't get the glory that the F-86 did during the Korean war. Its pilots did the heavy lifting providing air support to the troops and as such, they had a LOT higher attrition rate. The dog is a SPECIAL touch.

  7. Nice job! I love the F-80, but that’s my least favorite Monogram kit. Not easy, well done!

  8. Excellent build Valter. And a nice diorama, too.
    All the best!

  9. Terrific work on this. Beautiful result.

  10. Nicely done. Monogram kits still make great models.

  11. Fantastic model!
