An other pre war serie aicrafts
« on: January 23, 2015, 11:21:03 AM »
All this kits are in 1/72 scale.

The Blriot is the antic Frog.





The Taube is Pegasus kit





The  Henri Farman H.F. 24. of Omega models (a small resin kit)





And the Fokker Spin in scratch

All of these models in any scale would be remarkable, but in 1/72 scale they are mind boggling!  Magnificent work, mon ami!
Cheers,
Bud

Beautiful work indeed, very impressive!
I only build in 1:72 scale, and these are gorgeous!

Absolutely amazing work Alain, I built the Fokker Spin in 1:32 scale so I can imagine how difficult it must have been in 1:72 scale, I applaud your building skills.

    Spectacular work Alain, and all the more so in such a small scale. I believe we all can learn a lot from a modeller of your skills, I'm looking forward to following you on future projects here.
Cheers,

When I began) to build my Fokker, I looked on the Web and I saw your site.
I was inspired by your work for mine ;)

Man, that Fokker Spin is nice! All the models look great. How do you do this in 1/72 scale?

Congratulations on your beautiful models, Alain.  The Fokker Spin
is just sublime, considering the small scale.  It would be wonderful
in any size, but in 1/72 is unbelievable.  Well done mon ami. :D

Cheers,
Ernie :)

Outstanding work on all of your pre war models! The Spin certainly is an eye catcher! Beautifully done!!

Only just seen these - the Spin is just amazing. Mind the the others are also excellent, especially the Farman.
