She's a beautiful looking model Des. Masterful craftsmanship as always.

In my eyes, the Hannover Cl.II is about as aesthetically pleasing as the Snipe, but they both seem to grow on me as I look more closely at them. Having just invested in two Snipes though, I have to restrain myself after seeing your build or I'll end up buying one of these kits too.

Cheers,

Chris

She's absolutely gorgeous, Des.  Brilliant craftsmanship, as usual.
Cheers,

Here's my effort from the Old Kit GB.  It's the Koster vac in 1/48 scale.  Somehow, I knew that soon after building this one, WNW would release theirs.  Sod's law.









Might have to give that WNW kit a go.

Bud

Thanks, Bob.  It was a great kit and a fun build, but nothing like the WNW masterpiece.
Cheers,
Bud

You could build another, but I don't see how you could improve on this Bud. She's a fine looking old girl.

Cheers,

Chris

Thank you, Chris.  I could definitely improve on the fuselage lozenge.  I'm really leaning towards doing another.  Besides, this is a IIIa and the WNW kit is a II.  Totally different bus. ;)

Bud

Des and Bud,
Both of you have lived up to the Standards you have set for the rest of us  :D It is interesting to compare the beautiful clean build by Des, and the perfectly executed weathering by Bud. Both have been rendered with great skill!

So, let me join that pair of fantastic builds with a couple of photos of my Polish Cl.II.
