Awesome.  In the true meaning of the word.
Only thing I might have changed is the planking on the platform.  It looks a bit too careworn to me - brilliantly built but too shabby.
However, you have lighting and that's definitely something I can't do.

Another ill conceived, poorly thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Thanks for the honest feedback  :thumbsup: I really do appreciate it
I admit, I did want the wooden planks to look weather beaten and not fresh. I even added a tiny bit of rust to the frame but it washed out unfortunately / fortunately (depending on your point of view)

Modeling isn't just about how good the gluing or painting, etc. looks. It's also about how creative and imaginative you can be with a subject.

I psted a link to this build in Michael Fichtenmayer's Industria Mechanika Builder group on
Facebook.

Michael sez:

"Tell him I said that he did a fantastic job on that. Love the BMF/Wood and that base is spectacular.
Too bad about the plug breaking for the lighting."

And the night photos are really STUNNING!  :wub:

It's nice to know the creator of these kits takes such an interest in peoples take's on his creations. I really enjoyed this kit - it was easy to put together and had detail in all the right places. Well worth the money  ;D If I was to do it again, I would concentrate more on the cockpit but that would be it. Everything else went together beautifully

Please pass on my gratitude for the production of such a cool subject
Regards
