    Who betrayed anything? Not you uhu02. We did what is called "making a mountain out of a molehill", sort of. We took your remark about the drones and blew it all out of proportion. Our fault. Mea culpa. :oops:

    I like the drones in the scale you have drawn them. They will add a sense of life(!) to the model. Your build, by the way, is looking very good. it is a privilege to watch the master (sorry, Gary P.) at work. :thumb::thumb::thumb:

    Wow! That is small! No matter...that the drones are there at all is impressive.

    I just watched the movie again tonight. I'd forgotten how superb it is. Very quiet...very moral. It put me in mind of "Moon." It was certainly one of Bruce Dern's finest performances.

    The story goes that Bruce got tired of playing psycho cowboys on "Gun Smoke" and "Bonanza," fired his agent, got a new one and Silent Running was the first thing he got. It didn't exactly rocket him to stardom but it did put him on the map.

    I can't wait to build this model!

    Thanks again,

    Fiver

    Not a hijack Ron. You're providing information that will help Red contact Mike Joyce about posting his model.

    Well, these have been around years. I haven't heard any complaints, though I haven't built these specifically, but his other papercraft have been excellent.

    I had heard the Valley Forge was impossible to do in paper. Obviously not true. Your latest work is astounding!! It's worthy of the Picture of the Month! As Peter Taft says. "I'm gobsmacked!"
    Bravo Maestro!!
