I did too. It's especially awesome when you go back to the original thread and see the detail of the underside of the "Jug". It really makes everything stand out.

I agree.

Great work, and the others are good as well.

We are truly in a Golden Age of modeling. Kit selection and quality is simply bewilderingly good.

Agreed, Dale.

I am currently working on a wood bf-109. I finally figured out how NOT to cut balsa. It's quite a bit more tedious, and precise. It's a flying model, and I am a bit nervous about that!! Not to mention, you have to "make" some of your own parts based on the line drawings!!!!

I've done a teensy bit of scratchbuilding myself, parts and whole models, but none of them have to actually fly!

And I have to say that one of the things that ticks me off on my favorite modeling forum, Starship Modeler, is the amount of complaining about the state of the hobby that goes on. Sure, in some ways sci fi modeling has taken it in the shorts recently, but in others it's truly booming, in my opinion.

I may end up "glide testing" the beast ( to validate avionics, of course :biggrin: ) rubber band it, and then wuss out of the pee-wee engine, and then make it a static model out of it! :biggrin:

This ought to be interesting!

Sci fi modeling does sound like fun!

It is a hoot, but we have our rivet-counters there as well.

I am most impressed by Dales due to the detail in a 1:72 scale model. Well done mate.

Well all the planes are nice but dales plane are nicer. I also tried modeling when I was younger but I didn't have any success and I can imagine how much work is in each model.
EDIT: Sorry for the bump. Didn't see the last date.

The p-47 for me - 1/72 too - excellent work (macci was close)
