    I read Michael Krol's recent post identifying Pawel Mistewicz, as a fine designer at Maly Modelarz. I though it would be interesting to identify other masters. I have the Apache booklet discussed and would agree that the design is beautiful. So what say, who are other designers of note?

    I am not very knowledgable but would point out Peter Brand who has some fine civilian ships from HMV Verlag. I have not yet constructed one of his works, however he appears to be a favorite of the German papermodel ships site and I am drawn to the fine lines of his works. John

    Some AFV model designers

    Marian Sobel - Halinski, Maly Modelarz - The Halinski Panther and Tiger are still
    (IMHO) the benchmarks of AFV models.
    Waldemar Rychard - Modelik
    Ryszard Maj - Modelik
    Grzegorz Molenda - Answer

    Regards,

    Great find Jim,

    And furthermore it's a database application and lists all the publishers <-> models <-> designers, etc as well. Pity the site's not in English because there are forms to allow submission of updates,etc. There are also links to builds of some of the models. I can appreciate how much work has gone into assembling all the data about hundreds of models.

    Regards,

    Charlie
