Wild! :mellow:

Mind you, I wouldn't want to get in or out of that hatch in a hurry. ;)

The MG is interesting, where'd you source that? :unsure:

That looks about right, Chris; the 14/17 model in 1/32 looks the business.

They do look nice, miniature kits in themselves. I spent a while looking at them at SMW, managed to have a chat with the owners on the Sunday when it quietened down. I really was finding it more and more difficult not to buy a Wingnut Wings two seater and associated bits. Managed to resist however and if I honest the rigging is now beyond my eyesight. There's still the Junkers J1 though ?  :rolleyes:

Seeing your Sputnik 3 thread, I understand why this one got a new head!  Looks great. :thumbsup: 
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.
