    Oh yes, our old friend Swinger at work again. Should've recognized those glue-filled instruments immediately. But how did he ever get the camera into the model like that?!?

    And those safety straps sure are to die for, aren't they!

    Hi,

    Just like Simon (with Bartel), I'm in a great hurry to build the RWD before the deadline of Lech's contest (the chances are, but... Well, at least I'm trying :lol: ) - that's why the full build report will be written after the model has been done (the one at Kartonwork is just temporary - with some photos, without text). Of course I'll put it on Cardmodels.net, too. :)

    Leif, when I was taking that photo the cockpit hadn't been put into the fuselage yet. ;-)

    Gil, thanks, I've gained that Master's degree. :D The defence went very well.

    AHA! Swinger finally shared with us how he makes his model look so flawless. He has the manpower of 15 little men! That's why his planes have every single little detail; their miniature hands do the dirty work for him. Thanks Swinger. Now I know that my models looking so bad isn't my fault, I just don't have enough lego sets.

    I put my little Lego guys to work, but this being the U.S., they promptly formed a labor union, elected Lego Darth Vader the shop steward and went on strike! Now management has to do everything. I'm thinking of bringing in some Polly Pockets from south of the border, giving them low pay and no benefits, but I don't speak very much Pocketese, so the results will be questionable.

    This being a hypothetical 1940s situation, I'm sure Swinger's Lego guys know they would get fired at the slightest sign of insubordination, and possibly sent to jail (or worse) for sabotage.

    Dimas, you can't imagine how strong these little men are. ;-)

    Jasco, hahahaha. :)

    In fact they really are happy to work for me. Every day I give them a roll, a sausage and a cup of tea, and every weekend they are given a bottle of beer. :lol:

    P.S. I'm working on the full build report now, but it will take some time until I finish it in Polish and translate to English.
