Wow! Very nice job! I know how difficult that can be in 1/700 scale...

Time to paint the (Half) Airwing. 30 aircraft that I'm going to hand paint. Makes it easier than trying to mask off all the canopies.

I'm not much of a ship building kind of guy BUT......the way that the aircraft are being done these days takes a lot of pain out of the whole aircraft building problem.

P.S. Just because I don't build ships doesn't mean that I don't enjoy well built ones like this. I've said it before and I'll say it again, "I could look at this stuff for HOURS." :shocked:
