    @ Steve: Um...wow...:eek:...it's WAYYYY better than my build! sign1 Thanks for the feedback!

    @Owi: Yeah, I guess some weathering would look good, although the basic color scheme right now is what the actual bounder looks like

    Just a little more history on that Mig-25 that defected. When they examined the aircaft, they found all the electronics were miniature vacuum tubes. Everyone in the West thought they were so far behind. Then someone realized, that if a nuclear device was set off, all our *solid state* electronics would be wiped out due to the EMP (Electro-Magnetic Pulse IIRC) while tubes would survive this. All our aircraft would be grounded while theirs were still capable. A bit off topic I know, but it was an interesting side note (at least to me <G>). Eric

    Holy Smokes!

    Great job on a tiny build! I wouldn't have tried it that small. Well, not the first time anyway :)

    Thanks for sharing,

    You guys that do these dioramas amaze me. They're wonderful models in themselves. and make every model look ten times better. It's very inspiring. Someday I'll try one of my own.

    Great work Gerald and thanks for sharing it with us.
