Those both look so right in so many ways. I think you could easily fool someone with that Viper these days.

Heck of a size differential in thos two planes, isn't there?

Very nice!  :thumbsup: Love those low-viz markings.

Did you scratch-build the spine?  :o
Cheers,

Must, then, my projects bend to the iron yoke of a mechanical system? Is my soaring spirit to be chained down to the snail's pace of matter?

Tnx!! No,the spine is resin one and the "HRZ Low/Wiz" decals are manufactured by L&M resin kits & decals from Croatia. .......

The paint job is fantastic, especially the slight metallic sheen to the fuselage gray. It's hard to do with an airbrush, even more impressive when it's hand brushed.

I don't know how you do it but it's positively magic how your grey schemes are anything BUT "boring" (that we usually think of re: grey schemes).

Very, very nicely done.

That does look very much the part! :party:
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.
