    The other candidates were:
    -Taxi Aleko also from ModelArt but it seems that http://www.card-models.com/ doesn't work any more :cry::cry::cry:
    -P-51 Mustang "Old Crow" , I will build it but not for this contest and I will explain then why I didn't choose him
    -V-108 from Digital Navy, what can I say ? I like the airplanes more :mrgreen:

    If you want to win an additional free kit from the above link (see the original B-135 post), you'll need to move faster :) Someone else also already started building the Avia B-135.

    I know that thread and I'm afraid I will not be quick enough. But I hope my model will look better. :mrgreen::mrgreen::mrgreen:
    Not to mention that my waiting list is so long that I don't think I will build them all this year.

    I downloaded this model, but haven't printed it yet. The colors looked a little on the bright side for my liking, but your built-up version is looking very nice. I will keep an eye on your project.

    The original model is not very detailed so I've upgraded a little the cockpit as you can see in the first picture. I suggest to print the sheet woth the cickpit pieces twice if you want some details.
