    Cool beans, Ray!:)

    But, umm, you plumb forgot those wingie parts!:grin: (or are those in 288th scale?:grin: )

    To totally blow us away, howz about a scale reference (I cringe to think!).

    Are these FG re-paints and reworks? Really look fantastic! Great job!

    Cheers!

    Do I ever remember the 21I! Awesome build, and this foursome looks even better.

    I really like the way you build them at this scale, really tough to sense their small size without a reference, and when you do give a reference, well, it's just plain amazing!

    Just finishing up on a FG repaint of the Yak 38, but in the humogous 1/72 scale.:grin: Maybe some day I'll get the nerve up to try a smaller build....

    Cheers!

    Ray,

    Pretty dang dinky Migs! The thought struck me that we should have an annual award for the smallest cardmodels. The trophy is an eyeglass frame with a pair of coke bottle bottoms cut out to suit. We could call it the "Squinty Award". There would be engraving somewhere on the frames stating, "In posthumous remembrance of a once great set of eyeballs"....,

    Winning the Annual Squinty Award

    I was going all out to win the award with a 1:1,000,000,000 scale model of the Hindenberg. I had it all finished and was preparing to photograph it when I sneezed. It's probably just passing Cleveland now...,

    As much as I am honored to even be considered for the coveted "Squinty Award" I think there are quite a few other micro models more worthy of the honor than my little Krefeld...it might be a nice idea to create a Micro Model category so we can all see the various wee models people have out there. I very much appreciate the nomination, though...thanks, Ray!

    Of course, I'm sure it's a wonderful award, Gil, representing the highest degree of insanely small paper modeling...now, if only one could see it....:lol:

    As I went out for the paper this morning I got something stuck in my eye...did someone misplace a little blimp?:grin:

    Cheers!
