  1. Looks great ! Always liked the Invader.

  2. Wow Tolga, I’m afraid I have not followed your WIP thread, so seeing your model for the first time here had a stunning effect on me. Bravo, this one is one of your best work no doubt. If I may ask, what’s your opinion about the kit?

    • Thanks Pedro.
      The kit is really good and fitting is excellent except for the cowling flaps.
      The plastic material is soft . It s good for working on like sanding etc but it s not good choice for landing legs. And the decals of the (I am talking about the stencils) are bizarre. It s hard to work with them. Application became a nightmare for me and I have used some stencils from old Monogram s Invader.

  3. Your Invader looks magnificent ! It was really a pleasure to follow the build journal too. Thanks for participating in our Korean War group build.

    I pressed the “like” button too !
    Thanks again and stay safe.

  4. Great choice of markings to go with your usual quality build.

  5. I love your models, but especially your OD stuff. Your paint work brings the monochromatic scheme to life. Well done.

  6. Great work as usual, Tolga. You've really brought out the best in this kit.


  7. That turned out great, Tolga!

  8. Another superb build Tolga! I always look forward to your postings.

  9. Great job! Nice choice of scheme.

  10. Absolutely gorgeous, taking an already very good kit and make it into a museum quality model. Always liked the Invader even the Monogram kits, but these ICM kits are pretty good. You have brought an overall OD scheme and somehow it just pops off the page. Colorful excellent markings, which I have these as well and took all kinds of notes as I have the B-26C in progress with the glass nose. Another master piece Tolga, bravo! Thanks for sharing.

  11. Great build, Tolga.
    Paint job is very nice.
    For sure pressed the 'like' button.

  12. That's a wonderful build, Tolga!
    Repeating myself, but "It's another Tolga masterpiece". Excellent allover.

  13. Hello Tolga,
    Great job on this Korea veteran.
    Regards, Dirk
