    Geez, I wouldn't even know where to start, after looking at your build pics, I', astonished. I had trouble doing flight plans for simple airport to airport hops, for VFR joy rides!! (No problem flying the plane and getting to where I was going) but the paper work, meh. Your diorama is awesome. You don't see this kind of work that much these days. :)

    Hi Zathros,

    Thank you for your kind words! But as an aircraft mechanic I know very well your pain regarding paperwork!

    Also, if I understand correctly, Alles Gute zum Geburtstag!

    I will begin a new report on another large scale diorama soon.

    Kind Regards,

    Cris

    Being an aircraft mechanic is very intensive. I worked as an apprentice on aircraft on the side. I worked as a machinist in the aerospace industry for many years. I got to fly for free because of that. I also ran the F.B.O. on the weekends so I had a lot of power there. I'll never forget a guy with a Beechcraft Baron who insisted on refueling his aircraft, he had just purchased it. I was shocked when I saw him walk away from the plane while it was refueling. He accidentally (ignorantly) tore the fuel tank bladder. Inside, I laughed at his arrogance. Outside, I grounded his aircraft and prevented him from taking off. My friend (the owner of the place) made a nice profit on of that mistake! I am sure you have a quite a few similar stories. :)

    Whaaaaaaaat????

    Hi-Torque

    Are you saying that this is a card model? In a diorama? REALLY? Isn't it a picture of the Hamburger Hafen?
    Man, that's unbelievably fantastic work! You should post a thread showing how you did all that, with lots of pics, of course.
    Congrats on such an amazing work! I'm very impressed! :thumb: :thumb: :cool: :cool:
