Many thanks for your remarks, Terri and gents! This scheme jumped out at me from the time Rowan released the decal set and now that it's completed it still stands out to my eyes ........... great colors!

Excellent result, Lance.  The lighting and shadows in a couple of the pictures make it look like a full size bird!

Lance,

WOW, that's absolutely stunning.  As others have said, the rigging, the wood effect on the fuselage, the prop...  It's all just AMAZING.

Many Thanks Dave, and always good to hear from you again! Dark side?? A break is good for the soul and I hear that's quite a kit; not for me though but then again there's been a few "between the wars" kits turning up mysteriously in my Stash of late. ::)
Cheers,
Lance

This is beautiful!

I love the wood graining, the prop, all of it.
