    Pretty Model

    Peter,

    This is a very pretty model and requires that it be built in a leisurely unhurried fashion. This is one of those models that makes paper look extremely good and will impress just about anyone. I'll be following your build closely.

    Best regards,

    -Gil

    Your right about that Gil.. The graphics are so nice on this, that it should be a beauty if it goes together as good as it looks.. The wood grain finish on the fuselage, is very realistic.

    "leisurely unhurried fashion", is definitely my working pace..;-)

    Will be a while before I start on her.........

    Too bad about the bonus models. I've received one with each of the 3 orders I've placed so far, but that might be luck of the draw. But I'd still use Paper Model Store because of the selection and service. He's right up there with PMI, SpiShop and Hobby Model as vendors I have had great success with. (Totally unsolicted endorsement, by the way.)

    Peter, what you do to hiss him off? I've always gotten a bonus in my orders...then again, most of my orders are fairly hefty. I also made an order during the weekend, and it arrived today. Included the Albatros...it is a tanfastic model. My wife even likes the way it looks. I also got in a bag of his tubing bits and pieces....more fun than a button box. As a obtw, his service is just as good on his ebay items...though without the freebie. Now that he's opened his internet store, I think he is about the best paper model store this side of the pond.
