Well Peter, I've started a horse for my elefant on the Outono / Autumn 1944 album, that's what i can do for now 😉

There were 800 horses Rui, maybe you should make some molds? Nobody will notice if you do two the same!

I must admit Rui. I do understand the hammer now, having had to use something similar when I put my IKEA display cases together, but the sight of it did raise some alarm bells here. hahahahaha 😉 👍

Hi Mathieu, Thank you for your interest and stamina to scroll all this long album. I Respect that and your kind words.
If you felt cold, I've achieved the goal 😉
Winter war is a very interesting period, and you will find some diferent planes to replicate with your excellent skills 😄

Thank you very much for your kind words mates. I'm really pleased that you like and comment my work.
@ Jean-Michel, judging by your excellent dios, I'm sure your wise words are aplied in their execution 🙂
@ David, you can't imagine how I would like that your words were true. I would LOOVVVEEEE to know how to work with Photoshop, but unfortunatly I don't 🙁
@ WhiteGlint, the details take their time, but I think they are always important in a dio. You can alaways had some more interest with them 😉

Alec: Apparently a lot of Roy cross's original artwork was destroyed. Some of it was sold at auction over the years. I've just found a listing for a 2014 auction of his work. When he stopped working for Airfix he mainly painted ships – some of his Airfix work is half way down the first page.
I'd have happily made a few bids if I'd known at the time.

Just read that his first Airfix art was this:
Dornier 217. E.2 (Airfix 383, 1:72)

1:72 Dornier 217. E.2 (Airfix 383)

And his last:
Prinz Eugen (Airfix 05203-2, 1:600)

Space:1999 - love it, Rui! When I got back into the hobby one of the first things I built was an Eagle, because when I was a kid I built one.

Rui S
Thank you for your kind comments Rui. Mainly coming from a namesake😉 (my S also comes from da Silva).
I'm really sorry, that I don't know how to work with Photoshope, but I'll try to follow your advice with other programs and see how it works.
I see you scrolled through the photos in the Album, thanks again for that.
With around 100 thousand tons of cork per year, Portugal is the largest producer in the world, so it is natural that around here we use corks in a lot of things. Tinto, white, Porto, Madeira, etc. I like all of them 😄
3. March, 22:32
Kerry COX
So. Saying "Put a cork in it." instead of 'shut up' is not an insult. ? :)
It's so much nicer pulling the cork out of a bottle of wine, rather rather than the plastic or screw top crap the world uses now. :-/ :(
3. March, 22:44
Rui S
Yap Kezza, I think it's more polite, at least 😄
And I completely second your wise words. Cork is a noble material with several very good characteristics and it is even currently used by NASA😉

I've got the older version of this kit molded in the dark gray and it's a tough one to work with; congrats for doing a stellar job, especially with those rather difficult and sometimes strangely posed figures of theirs. (I'm thinking of the Italeri Schwimmwagen with the officer holding his elbow up over his head LOL).
18. July 2020, 12:15
Rui S
Thx a lot Al, much apreciatted and I'm really glad you like it.
I really liked all the work needed to make the kit and figures something decente. the result always serves as an incentive.
I'm leaving my best kits for when I have more experience.😉

Very nice. Good colours ! I just think the driver is too far on the right.

Thank you very much for your very nice comments, mates.
@ Dietmar, Much apreciated and I feel happy that you like this one.
@ Jan, Yap I can say that I'm a bit of an old school stubborn. Still a lot of dry brushing; humbrol enamel use; lack of aftermarket stuff and so on...😉 But very glad to receive your comment.
@ Olivier, You might be right, I think the driver got scared and followed the traffic controller's directions to strictly😉
1. February, 19:08
I like the way you place the models and figures so that they look natural and realistic. It brings your dio's to life.
20. February, 12:10
Hanno Kleinecke
What a lively and realistic scene, I can almost hear this Opel Blitz's engine being downshifted one gear, while taking that curve.....
The guy with the sunglasses looks exceptionally cool !
27. February, 13:36
Rui S
Hallo Hanno, I'm very, very glad that you noticed this work and comment. Your kind words made me laugh.
You are right, that down slope curve and the guy waving... better be careful. Thank you, very much appreciated.
If that one looks cool, it is the other one who is smoking, who knows what, with all that smoke coming out😉

Good move Rui. You can't be careful enough. Especially now there is a more deadly strain of the virus sweeping the world. To tell you the truth. I am quite scared. I stay in my home all the time and have my food and all other requirements for daily living delivered. It's cheaper to eat 'Jenny Craig' dietary food than to go out and shop for regular type nourishment. :-/ Stay vigilant. 👍
