  1. Another one of your excellent builds, David.
    Looks perfect down to every detail!
    Happy New Year!

  2. Some of those detail shots look like you're taking photos of the real thing.

    Excellent work as usual.

    "Liked" - a lot!

  3. It looks as though it could actually fly, definitely liked.

  4. David, @mentaldental
    I could tell right away this was a build of yours. The comments made above are spot on about this build. It looks extremely realistic and likelike. If I didn't know any better, this could pass easily for the real thing, especially in the close up detail photos. The paint work on the prop is exquisite too !
    I'll add my "pressed the liked button too" comment... Happy New Year and stay safe.

    Well done my friend, VERY well done... 🙂

  5. All of the above remarks are truely valid, David.
    This is a beauty on every detail.
    Another "liked".

  6. Happy New Year to you all
    I hope you and yours stay well and prosper ...didn’t Spok say that ?

  7. Another beautiful and clean build, compliments David. Very interested by flat AIMS rigging you did perfectly here. Happy New Year !

  8. The turn buckles and the rigging wire really stand out. The castor oil splatter under the wing and gear add to the look and feel or the character of this kit.

    Hard to believe that WingNut Wings went under when they produced some of the best kits in plastic available in any scale.

    David your time and efforts really standout in bringing out the best in this kit.

    Two thumbs up.

  9. I might be using more flat wire on the next project... a Tripe...Ray Collishaw WNW

    Happy New Year folks
