Frank Krause That's a "WOW"!

Holger Kranich Absolute fabulous work! Stunning! Yes its a "WOW"!

Aghis Barberopoulos Relics have a kind of magic that no factory fresh aircraft can have...
11. May 2012 at 16:53:59
Holger Kranich Yes Absolutely, Aghis! Especially this one here with its battledamage and torn wings. I hope that one day, i can make a trip to the Phillipines and do some wreckdiving there! Or at Wake or Iwo Jima...

Chris W Its one of those articles that shows a level of modeling I will never get to. Simply amazing - I would love to see it in person.
11. May 2012 at 18:30:13
Holger Kranich Yeah CW, this is really a hell of a great model! Hopefully, my skills will grow to this high level of state-of-the-art modelling!

Markus Kutsch There you see how important good reference pics are.
