    Very nice - especially clean job on the canopy especially with the metallic paper!
  6. I concur. I like the pilot, not bad for paper. Most of the paper people are not very 3-d

    I'm not sure , but I think it's the same model, I can see the same brand-marks, like 'Karton-militaria' and '2000 EMA" on the cover
    Cheers, Billy

    And one more;
    TMHO, this is a nice kit, not difficult, because everything fits well, a bit "boxy" because of the way it was designed..
    The plane is defenitly in the "Ugly duckling" catagory, but it could outclime a Corsair easely...
    Cheers, Billy

    Billy,

    WOW, great results! Ugly Duckling? Sure. But interesting subject. I like seeing something different.

    Thanks for the online build.
