    The boats are a work of art !!

    When the whole ship is completed I think you will have to send it to one of the big maritime museums on loan, I think it would inspire many people.

    How you would part with it even for a short period I don't know.

    Hi, colleagues,
    I have changed a little bit the engine boat.
    For every boat I have inserted an instrument panel with two pointers and a gearshift

    Hello,
    The second crane is also already ready.
    On the crane a seaplane will hang.
    That is now I build 4 airplanes type Arrado 196.
    Because I want to make the airplanes even better (addition parts which I myself must do because do not exist), therefore, this will last a little bit.

    Hello,
    As well as I have seen the airplane on photos, also so I have built. I am no airplane model farmer and had to a lot where no photos was to be found to improvise, z.b. Pilots pulpit.
    Here a seat with seat belts and dashboard and tax has
    dazugebaut. Everything is so small there one must work with magnifying glass.
    Here a few photos only do not laugh, I am no airplane farmer
    the first Arrado 196 of four all together

    Greeting

    Laugh? That is better than I can do with a full size model! Very well done on the 196. As for the rest of the model...all I can say is WOW!

    Scorpio, there is no sound of laughter, my friend, just the thud of jaws dropping, once again! :shock:
    Truly unbelieveable work!!
    As I said once before, just when I thought I had seen the most amazing paper modeling (heck, the most amazing of ANY type of modeling, for that matter) you go and take it to ANOTHER level of excellence! :D
    Joy and congratulations on a superb little gem, a masterpiece in its own right!!
