  1. This is a great build, Samo!
    Love the Egyptian markings, as well as the pilot details.

  2. Thanks! Not easy to build I had overtrres packing without decals and accessories this was a bad choice. Some time ago I bought a set of DP casper decals, which are of good quality but basic and not well researched. Since I didn't have stencils, I collected some leftovers from Airfix and painted No step with a brush.

  3. Very nice build, Samo.
    Incredible details on that pilot in 1/72.
    Well done.

  4. Excellent finish Samo, nice work.

  5. Very nice result on this.

    Too bad SH doesn't do this in 1/48, since it looks better than the available competition in that scale.


  6. Lovely work! The Vampire looks good in Egyptian markings. Well done.

  7. P.k I've been an admirer of your work for a long time, here and elsewhere. When I see P.k I know I'm gonna like it. You did the No Step markings by brush, that's awesome. You Sir are a great modeler.

    Nice looking build P.K. , very clean and neat.
    Good work on the pilot, a very good scale relation wise factor.
    Pity it is not in 1/48 scale at least, just the looks of it shouts "HISTORIC".
    Just love the looks of those Egyptian markings, gives the model a sense of interest.

  9. A great result Samo. I'm envious of your eyesight! She's a pretty aircraft & you've done a lovely job here. I've done one in 1/48th (Classic Airframes) but I believe there's a new kit coming from Airfix; soon, I hope.

  10. Thanks!
    It is not easy to build but it is almost the only one.
    Now I'm waiting for Airfix in 1/48.
    There will probably be quite a few of them landing on my "stash".

  11. Nicely done Samo, looks good.

  12. Now I'm waiting for the AIRFIX 1/48 F.5/52 version.
