Masterfully done, as usual, Brad!  I remember your build log on this one.  Her interior is as gorgeous as her exterior.  (Afraid I can't say that about my ex.  It does apply, however, to my current missus.)

This was the third kit I built after my 30 year hiatus. It's the Airfix offering, with very little improvement. The interior is scratch built and the markings are handpainted, but other than that it's OOB, warped wing and huge panel lines included.
 I have another in the stash, with a Choroszy engine and Mini-World Parabellum to add to it...looking forward to getting a start on it....

Definitely a "practice" effort, but much better than the first one I built when I was about 12!


Thanks for posting that. I had no idea that such a kit was available in 1/72! As a result I've just found one on ebay.  :)
