Ken and Ian,
I Love the scales on your Roland Ken. Top Notch work all around!
Ian, Your work on that Old Airfix kit looks great to me! The last one I built was an MPC release in the states that had Paisly decals and Custom Chrome parts! Thank God I didn't use them and no record exists of my build  8)

Rick,
That is the MPC kit, it came with the "flame" decals - hence the handpainted ones!

Hello Ken and Ian,

Two different schemes than Bud's and RB, but even so nice. Well done and congratulations.

Kind regards
Patrick

Ken!  Long time, no see!  Where have you been, my friend?  Great to see you back.  Folks, Ken is modest.  If I recall, those fish scales are painted on, not the decals provided in the kit.  Now, that's modeling artistry.  One of my all time favorite Roland D.II's.
Cheers,
Bud

Ian, beautiful job on that rough little MPC kit!  Silk purse, if I ever saw one.
Cheers,
Bud

Thanks Bud, and everyone for the kind words..... And all the other Walfisch shown here are beauties!

Bud, I have been so busy of late with work & life in general.... I still take a peek in here from time to time (more & more lately) I am still working on the Scratch-built 1/32 AEG C.IV but itching to start a WNW Fokker D.VII.... would like to do Hantelmann's/Wsthoff's 382/18 on a trailer after capture..... but do know if I can bring myself to do it....?  ;)

 Thanks Again!

    Ken

Gents,

These all look good (not the most elegant looking of aircraft though) work -

Bud and Ken - most definately nothing wrong with either of your builds.

Regards

Dave
