Well, she's all done.  Some silvered decals, and a rough time making the wings move, but I'm satisfied with it.  I hope HOG would approve.  Miss his creativity here.  Tuck

Not only great model, but a fantastic paintjob as well! :bow:
Cheers,

Stunning  :wub: :wub:

Those first couple of photos have an almost "animal" look to them, as though the Germans have somehow tamed a mythical beast

Beauty! :wub:
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.
