Dear Frank,
What more can one say here? Your skills are slowly but surely reaching Swiss watchmaking proportions. It is always fun to read your buildlogs.
Bye,
Manni

Thank you Frank for your clear explanation about black and red.
Now your Sopwith needs a diorama!
Congrats again!

Sorry to be late to the party Frank - I have been away as usual...! I am really pleased that you have kept the flowers - this is an exceptional model in every way and the flowers help to keep it in the exceptional category!

Stephen.

I do not know how I missed the roll-out of this great model.  :o Though, I have followed the progress with great interest and now it is a final pleasure to admire it in the completed state. Truly great modelling all around and the joy to have something rare and very likely not to be seen done by anyone else is surely a bonus gain. Thanks for taking us all on this lovely journey, Frank!

Thank you very much!
The ability to cut airbrush masks with the plotter is a great tool enhancement to my workbench and allows projects like this.

Cheers,
Frank

That, Sir, is truly a thing of beauty!

Wonderful job. Love the flowers. The whole thing has that 'time machine and a shrink-ray' air that radiates from an exceptionally well done model.
