Love the Huey,but 1/72 is just to small for my old eyes.

All 1/72 modellers, in my opinion, have the patience of a saint.

Just stunning work mate, a pleasure to look at and imagine the end result.

Great work. 🙂

"Thanks to all of you for so kind words!". Back to my old days of modeller 1/48 was the right one but after time and a long time ago, I found this little scale very rewarding and motivating. In my opinion this one is the best "I'm just saying" 😉

Thank you Florian H. Im trying to get back and finish it. That will be my last militar stuff I realize that militarie develop is no longer my interest. There are much more interesting things that the military section. I will get it done, just need time to put hand on the issue.

gorbygould, maybe you can ask Ronan how that is posible, the man is a truly modeller. Ronan, can you explain that(?) because for me anyone can do it, its no big deal, or it is??
10. November 2016, 00:33
Marc A.
Thanks Ronan! keep working and dazzling us!!
10. November 2016, 00:34
Yes Marc, i think anyone can do that small parts but he must be very patient , very focused and have goods tools with good techniques. When i was younger, i was too hurry to finish my models, so they were not top models. Now i take the time, if i miss a part, i start again, sometimes few days after but i don't give up easily. 🙂🙂
10. November 2016, 17:34
Marc A.
There you've given! how here in spain they say. Its more patience than anything else. The creativity on what you want to do and start working on it!. We can si it, Ronan...your strength is well showed 🙂

Kerry COX
As I said. A brain surgeon on a watch making holiday.👍
It fascinates me how creative we can get, but more so, the way we solve those problems of HOW it gets done.
We humans certainly are an amazing species. for sure. 🙂
Worth every second in the end. 🙂

Kerry, the more excited things is that humanbeings are natural creative by nature. Not just for create art or music, but to create the better ways to live and solve problems. There's also the oposite side on this but, because we have the hability to learn the signs and use them for comunication we are capable of evolve and grow, adapt and develop ingenious and complex things. In such a way that applying the reason and the capacities we can maintain a line of evolution and growth. The creativity is like those natural signs that we have and that we start to learn when we reach the "reason" of conscious. Some ones said that we already start to learn those signs when we still are inside of momy and maybe that complety true and for that reason parents should be conscious on that too and avoid any kind of bad habits to preserve the healthy the welfare of the species and the person. Its our obligation to reject those bad habits, those implanted as daily and harmless things because in the end that make you!. Because in the real end it is what destroys those brilliant minds and diverts the young, adult from reality.

Thank you. 🙂
I agree whole heartedly.
All that remains to do now, is limit the amount of "Screen Time" our children have. 🙁
Parents are failing their kids when they buy them these mechanical baby sitters. 🙂
Play outside and eat worms and mud. Build a billy cart. climb a tree, build and blow up a model.🙂
The fun things of life. 👍
