Can one drool over a model?  Well where's the kleenex? Well done!

Very nice Lance. (Insert big thumbs up icon here)!  :)

Your attention to detail and subtle weathering looks great, as does your lozenge wing rib effect.

A beautiful model all round.

To me it is an excellent diorama of that small scale, yet vital activity enacted millions of times since aviation began, the before flight

check and associated minor maintenance. With an absense of human activity and casual positioing of tools and equipment your scene

depicts a peaceful moment in time at odds with the aircraft's impending mission, providing to me a feeling of

"calm before the storm".   

Your supporting models are very nicely done and just the right amount to tell your story. 

IMHO a very good example of "less is more"!

I like your story line and particularly the comment "the maintenance crew is at the Mess Hall for wurst and beer (lucky devils!)

I hereby suggest you deserve another small largeish scotch yourself  ;D

Cheers  :)

Boggie,
     Thanks so much, I am flattered by your comments and for adding even more interpretation to the scene. I like the "calm before the storm" analogy, such moments were common I am certain. I'll take your suggestion on the large(r) Scotch, I really like that part!
28 Juni 14,
    Thank you, and I'm flattered that your first post here is a comment on my Build!
Cheers, :)
