    Nice start Sergio and even in 1/72 it's going to be a sizable machine.

    Very nice Sergio! I did the 1/48 Italeri Kit and loved it. I love this craft. The panel lines and detail on the wings look great. Hope the fit is as nice as it was on mine.

    Igor, I is that almost 98% of my models are mounted on this scale I like a lot, there is much dislike that is compliced, but considering that the detail is half as large as in 1/48 is twice as easy to 2 or 3 do with little details already done large scale while more detailed and easier to make mistakes, I think

    I had thought about doing well in the Australian version and I'm doing the collection of aviation from the RAAF in WWII, (I'm looking to get me another), as this not to upset my wife to the American emblem like art box, so will you do at the end.

    thanks
    took 5 days going around the internet looking for a picture to show me as was the raft or package that was behind the driver in the top, in a book that I have in stock I can not have eln the floor for lack of space that sometimes I read had a liferaft in case fell to the sea, but I do not see any picture of this area if anyone can hecharme a hand with some fotillo would appreciate it, this issue delayed work and I do not want to close the cockpit

    good but hoped the project would go faster is that the set in if I get a lot of trouble with the lace, it remains an open question and needs to place either the dihedral of the wings, the plastic is somewhat twisted, this is not common the mold, as I always say to have a place for optimum storage of mquetas is critical especially in winter with heating the plastic softens and shall be governed,

    at the moment is what I have I have no other place, until we get the building permit and then I will have a site right now.
