    First up is the Revell 1:48 Spirit of St. Louis. I'm sure all of you know the story behind this beautiful aircraft.

    now this, I'm pretty proud of. it's, I believe a Hasegawa 1:72 scale Volkswagen Kubelwagen. DAMN that thing was small! oh, the kit was a combination of this, and a BMW motorcycle w/ sidecar. I think I did ok on the MG42. the kit came with interchangeable prts. so I didn't glue the canopy and the MG42 on. I liked both designs.

    now this: this is just....ugh it was poorly put together, AND painted. I"m thinking of re-doing the painting or just touching up during my next model. which will hopefully be a Dragon Horten Ho-229 Flying Wing

    so those of you who think I did great on all these models can slap me because I have no idea what I'm talking about XD

    That's always how it is, and it's very difficult to work with things that small.

    Great work!

    any model in 1/72 that looks and reflects realisim is very good.dont forget if you think that the units you show are "battle hardened" that the shid be ibn pristine condition.as a kid building models my dad showed me that not all military equiptment was spic and span and this added more realisim.good job
