  1. Looks awsome, Artur! Great job on this unconventional aircraft. Great paintjob and weathering, not too much grime.

  2. An incredible looking Cobra, Artur. @artro219
    Those P39's look great by themselves, but you gave it an extra dimension with your build.
    Love the details.

  3. Arthur, Very nice, I like the nice work you did showing off the interworking's of the areas behind the panels. Makes for a very interesting model, worth taking ones time to look at for awhile !

  4. Fantastic build!

  5. I have to say that I started looking at this from the personal taste of not being a huge fan of "opened up" models. But by #20, I was a fan of this "opened up" model. Really quite nice, realistic work, with good attention to detail and excellent wear/weathering. You sold me.

    As you said Artur, and I quote " a design that appears at competitions quite sporadically " .
    This model is a great show piece. The weathering is very appealing and your slight fading
    gives it a unique appearance, very much so with those Russian markings. Nice detailing work.
    Thank you for sharing those pictures.

  7. This is as truly excellent model with meticulous attentin to detail, Artur.

  8. Excellent looking Cobra Artur, some great attention to detail as well. Can you translate the nose art work?

  9. Love the paint work and weathering- the fading is beautiful. A great model!

  10. Artur, I'm suspicious because I'm in love with p-39s, since I was very young. But your job is really outstanding. Congratulations.

  11. Thank you all for the nice words, it is very motivating for further and even better gluing and painting.
