    Agostini, I am always impressed by your ability to pull these shapes out of paper. I am a great admirer of your work. :)

    Hi, during this weekend I have finally started to build ejection seat and pedals with stick. I have build the most advanced version of both and now I have to find out how to make some parts easier to have 2 versions of each part. Below is also photo of L-29 delfin, from Paper model exhibition which was last week in Prague and you can see this model also compared with L-39 Albatros in the same scale:

    You have a beautiful collection of models. Your design skill is self evident, as you models really look like the aircraft you have modeled. They look like miniature real aircraft. Your have "nailed it!". :).
