  1. Terrific work, Allan, I can never believe that you get such great results in 1/72, that canopy framing would drive me nuts.

  2. Great work Allen. I have one to build in 48 scale which will be a combination of the AZ and OZ Mods correction. This is probably why it’s not built yet.

  3. Nice to see your work back in the Headlines, Allan - and coming back with a ... "Vengence" 😉
    Great assembly photos, and a great idea to ensure prop symmetry.
    Nice looking plane.

  4. Another superb result, Allan! Always amazed by the neatness and effectiveness of your work, let alone the final result.
    Happy 2023!

  5. An excellent result, Allan @kalamazoo
    Nice improvements on this build, especially since this is just a 1/72 scale.
    Happy New Year.

  6. Great job my friend. Love it!

  7. As usual an immaculately presented finish , your work always impresses me Allan . Do you always paint your canopy frames freehand like this ? , I wouldn't dare !

    • Thank you Neil, mostly I do, but not always, a couple more pic's.

  8. Nice job, Allan. The results give a much bigger appearance than 1/72. Well done!

  9. Nice work, Alan! I love the Vengeance and you’ve reminded me that I need to finish mine. That canopy painting is amazing. I was able to hand paint a canopy up to about age 40. Now I need all the help I can get. Well done.

  10. Well done, Allan (@kalamazoo). I have heard this is a tough kit to get right, but you have certainly made it look great.

  11. Beautiful work on your build, it looks great! The finish on the canopy frame is spot on!

  12. a very nice white-tailed Vengeance! Striking scheme for that aircraft. Well done.
