High Performance OTTO-Fighter
« on: April 26, 2009, 07:41:09 am »
This is my Blohm und Voss P.208, from Czechmaster - Resin kit 1/72 + some scratchbuild detals and foiled (natural Metal Foil sheets) the model all over. I really enjoyed building it ;)























I hope you like it.
Thanks for looking.

That's very nice ST, I think I will have to get one of those myself.  Not sure I could do the metal foil like yours though   :thumbsup:

Luft '46 isn't my bag, but I know an excellent model when I see one.  Makes a pleasant change seeing a Luftwaffe plane in NMF, and the sharkmouth is the icing on the cake :)

Ridiculously good....several light-years ahead of my own abilities, but I am cheering over here.   :bow:    :thumbsup:

P.S.  Yes, I am putting this in the potential candidates listing for the Whiffie Awards.

That is absolutely amazing!! :bow: :bow:
I wish I had the know how to do that sort of work with foil I really do. My aircraft would be all 1950's stuff that is for sure.
I will vote it for a whiffy award thats for sure. :thumbsup:

If ever there was a candidate for a Master Class in NMFing I don't know what is!

That's magnificent!!  :bow: :cheers:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage
