    Wow, Marcus @mvtb!
    What a surprise for the new year!
    The Esci is a beautiful oldie, with this camo will look ABSOLUTELY amazing!
    We operated SLUFs in Greece, so i have an even more particular affection to them.
    Eagerly waiting for your progress!
    Happy New Year, my friend!

    Coming along just fine Marcus (@mvtb). Very nicely laid camo!

    If I may; try cleaning the lens on your phone with a cloth before taking the next pictures – I think the quality is down to a fingerprint on the lens (Dont ask how I know) ;).
