Mr. Dobrzelecki's has certainly made good use of the spare parts in creating that model fast attack boat.  Trying the determine the origin of the pieces is a challenge without having read through his build report.  Definitely very creative and well done.

That scantily clad 109 looks pretty sweet, reminds me of the Naked Il-2 I saw once.

Whoa! That 555 looks marvellous.  :bow:

I hope Revell will re-release this one. They have re-released some of their Luft '46 in the past few years and apparently the Me P.1099 Heavy Fighter will make a comeback next year.
Cheers,

Must, then, my projects bend to the iron yoke of a mechanical system? Is my soaring spirit to be chained down to the snail's pace of matter?

Naaaaaaaah but they're open to the predations of the JMN when posted outside of this forum, which can have negative connotations on the minds of less-secure whiffers who haven't gotten to the habit of telling the JMNs who get in their face precisely where they can stick it, where they can go, how they can get there and just how long they can stay there and in whose company they can be whilst they are there.
