I love it.  I do wonder if you could reinforce the bat wings with some wire or something... it just doen't look right when they're droopy. ;)

No! Don't do it.  Resist, resist.  Build a Trumpeter 1/72.


Or pray that Airfix see sense and pantograph it down to 1/72................

We really need a very good 1/72 Sea Fury ----

Oh, this is shaping up nicely. I've had my eye on the aforementioned Trumpeter 1/72 kit for a long time... this may push me over the edge. ;)

Wow. I like it... especially the wing gate. Nice work indeed.

Is/was that an L-39 in (incomplete) Czech RAF squadron markings?



That's an L-159 ALCA that is painted up to mimic a Spitfire flown by a Czech pilot during WWII. It seems the only time that the white part of the markings goes on is when it's slated to do a dynamic show. I'm not sure if that's so it can be low vis when not displaying or if it's something to do with the RAF roundel and regulations regarding its use.

Here's a picture I took of it at a show in 2017 with the markings in complete form:

TBG,

Ah, that does help.  I just sent Musa a request for three of those sets.  His renderings are so perfectly cast that they're almost a shame to start gluing together as they are that beautiful.  The detail and accuracy he achieves is fully equal to any top-notch injection moulded kit.  And his subjects are always fascinating.

I wish him continued luck in his worldwide sales.

Agree on his casting quality. Outstanding. Additional chatter seem to indicate that he is open to producing some Luft '46 kits.

I just got a message from Musa that my items are in the mail.
