That's some mighty fine work there, CAO! The paint chipping is especially well done!

That is fantastic, shows what can be done with Unicraft  :bow:

The only other one I've seen built was flown by Free Poles flying in the French AF on the basis no one else was mad enough to fly them !  ;D

Bravo! Bravo! Yes! ("bravo" is an English word also...)
You should send one of these great pictures to Igor (of Unicraft), to be featured in his top gallery, I think. ;D

That looks great! Even more impressive since it's a Unicraft kit - only you and Tophe have made good looking models out of his kits. Most be a French skill!

Nice work on a not-so-easy kit.  And the finish looks good.

The technique of applying silver first and then scratching the camo paint to simulate wear is nothing short of brilliant! Very inspiring model, indeed.

Wonderful job on a difficult kit! :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
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.

excellent chipping and actually whole build is really good, having on mind it is resin kit!  :cheers:
