    Ladies and gentlemen,

    As we all know, Fabrizio Prudenziati (Zio Prudenzio) passed away recently.
    I would like to invite EVERY MEMBER here at Zealot to go to his website: http://www.zioprudenzio.it/fokker.html and download ANY of his models of your choice, build it and post it here in this thread, to show your appreciation for his work and as a memorial to a GREAT DESIGNER!

    I am looking forward to seeing many projects from all of you.
    Let's not let his memory (and legacy) die as well.

    (*NOTE* If you have already made one of his models, PLEASE post photos of it as well.)

    Thank you.

    I have many of his figures but have not started on them yet. Hopefully I will get around to them soon. His models are of great quality and he will truly be missed within the paper modeling community. I can see him designing paper angels in heaven.

    I've done just a few of Zio's models. Ironically, I just finished the Fokker when I heard of his passing. Sad.

    Anyway, here they are. The SE5 was done at half size (1:144 scale) 'cause I wanted to see if I could. I saw a few done in this scale at the Wings of Glory website for use in the game and I thought I'd try.

    Especially since I can confirm that the ones in that picture weren't put together terribly well. ;) There's a reason they're oriented for the photo the way they are.

    His models were among the first I've ever built; they always did evoke a certain sort of 'nostalgia' for me whenever I saw them. If there is an afterlife, I do hope he realizes how much of an impact he had on the community. RIP, Mr. Prudenziati, thanks for your gifts to us.

    Hello Ladies and Gentlemen,

    Here is my contribution to honor Mr. Prudenziati, his work and most importantly, his memory.
    I built one of his archers. The reason why I chose the archer, is because, I practice archery myself and thought that the archer would be a good way to show such honor, respect and appreciation for the gifts that he so generously and freely gave to all of us.

    THANK YOU VERY MUCH Mr. Prudenziati for EVERYTHING!!!

    MAY YOU REST IN PEACE!!!

    Outstanding! You really know how to make these models, and bang them out with high quality, I may add. :)
