I am very happy that you built the Zwilling Bv-255 as well !
BUT... be careful, Superglue is gluing fingers too!:
I am glad that, with a little surgery, your fingers are free again ;D

I'm trying to work out how you can turn my right hand around to give me a left and a right without turning the 155 it'self around ?

A mirror imaging routine in the graphics package.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Right but it hasn't turned the 155 around ? Or am I missing something ?

Back in the Middle Ages they'd have run out of firewood by now  ;)

Yes, you are..............  ;D

Tophe marked out an area of your original pic that went from the left wing tip as far as the right landing gear. Then he copied and mirrored that area, which also included your hand, and pasted it immediately to the right of the original marked out area. Job done.  :thumbsup:

It's a technique I use all the time when I'm drawing up my decals, which is why it's obvious to me how he did it, but I can understand why it looks like magic if you don't think like that normally.

I confirm this is what I did. Using the Canadian software Corel Photopaint (in Corel Draw Home 2018 package).
The second picture with more distant hands required a little "painting" (with the mouse and colour near).
Anyway this is just a joke, the important fact is celebrating the source model!
