  4. Beautiful build, Martin @Matra
    A not so often build aircraft.

  5. I remember doing this kit 20 years ago. It gives an entirely new definition to "Difficult Kit". You're got a remarkable achievement here, getting this great result from that kit.

  6. Top job Trachsel,congrats!

  7. I love the Barracuda - did a 1/72 version a couple of years back. Such an ungainly looking thing. Very nicely done!

  8. Fine work on a tough build!

  9. That's just 'special' (pun intended). Superb build.
