So you painted the checks.. Incredible. masking must have been ever so much fun. What ever you did, it came out just great. I do not think I have ever seen a more difficult job done so well. My hat is off to you Sir.

This is your first WNW kit?
Well, If you carry on producing this sort of work you will be winning a few 1st places in the near future.

Excellent build and finish.
Well done.

That is a gorgeous model -I fear decals, but I fear a masking job like this even more!

Hi Fredrik - you've done an outstanding job on this model. The tremendous amount of work you did in your scheme and weathering have paid off. Congrats on a very well done project.
Cheers,
Gary

Fredrik, I am really impressed by your great model. Although as Frankonian I deeply despise the white blue diamonds, symbol of the Bavarian occupation of my beloved homeland  :), I must say that this is perfectly executed.

WOW, that is absolutely amazing.  ...everything, the prop, the blue/white checkers, the weathering...  It's perfect

Now THAT is a piece of work.  Lovely finish and such delicate detail.  All those tiny decals!  And I love the underside of the spreader bar.  Looks like, well...wood!

Nice job.

Thank you Dan! Well I was aiming for that light coloured plywood look, but good that you think it looks the part!

I'm not quite sure what you refer to with "all those tiny decals". If it is the white and blue diamonds, then they aren't decals.

Cheers Fredrik

What a gorgeous model Fredrik, simply stunning. Your command of masking and painting are outstanding! So many great details. I’ve always called this the “beer label” scheme - it reminds me of, what is it, a Löwenbrau label or is it another? I’m in awe of this, your first WNW build. Sadly I sold off my Green Tail Trilogy boxing because I already had 3 other Albitri, and those schemes were really daunting to me  :(
Well done and thanks for sharing!
