Same question... Our Glenn has done wonderful things at 1/144th, is this even smaller ? Nice... :wub:  (This should have been my way when I was an active modeller, making collections of shapes  :wub:  without loosing weeks for details  :(  )

Hmmm, do you want to paint the 1/700 aircraft I have for me ?  :P  :ph34r:
Great bit of painting Joe.

Those are 1/700 replicas of three recent productions on this site - two for the Soviet group build, and the Corsair floatplane that inspired one of my projects (see my current signature).

The Soviet ones are on the Oral class carrier I made out of a Testors Kuznetsov and Aoshima Kiev; part of the idea of that group build was that I would replicate the large-scale models in miniature on the deck. On my to-do list is an updated Revell Graf Zeppelin for a base for the 1950s and 1960s aircraft.

It takes patience, small brushes, and a good eyes or a good magnifying glass. I have good eyes yet, but also a good glass for when I am older.  :rolleyes: I also have a wide range of decals in 1/600-1/700; I did not paint those letters by hand.  ^_^

How are you doing the helos in 1/700? Does someone make them, or are you scratching them?

Steve,

In case you didn't know, WEM makes 262s in 1/700.

Hi Joe
I've seen the WEM 262's that's one of the things that gave me the idea, that and the fact the A/C you get with the kit aren't that good.
