  1. Amazing job, James! Hard to believe it is only 1/72!
    Well done!

  2. To me this is a superlative Gustav, James @jkelleycrna
    All the extras and paintwork, especially in this scale, look great.

  3. Very sharp looking build. Congrats!

  4. Nice work, Janes! German mottling in 1/72 is not for the faint of heart.

  5. Good looking Gustav! I agree - the Tamiya G is a great kit to put together.

  6. Nicely done James.

  7. Very nice! Great painting!
