    Here is my latest. It is a 1/144 rescale of Gabriel Panait's Mig-21 Lancer C. Outstanding kit. Lots of detail and incredibly fiddly bits. The only thing I changed was lightening the colors some to account for scale effect.

    Hey Texman...

    Outstanding work at any scale...but at 144 you've outdone yourself.

    Ray.............One request............ take a picture of all your aircraft, that has got to be one of the best collections around! You still amaze me with those tiny perfect builds.......... dang it!
