    Hello friends, as i mentioned in the Aviation section, i´m 15 yrs old, from Slovakia and make kits for 2 years. Here You can see my latest models in 1/72nd scale - manufacturer Academy. The British one is out of box, the second one has folded wings made by myself. I airbrushed whole surfaces. Well, what do U think?

    Those are fantastic. But my BS meter is peaking. Got any mid-build pics with your 15yo face? If so, I will issue you a forum apology. Because that build is so sweet you would certainly deserve one. Please prove me wrong and make me eat crow.

    Yep... 2yrs of experience and you are pumping those out? Man o' man you are gonna go places. I'm getting my catsup and Tabasco out for my crow. I'm gonna love issuing you an apology with that kind of skill my friend. The forum deserves to hear me grovel for forgiveness. What else you got in your stash?

    Okay. Reluctantly I {munching crow] ... I... apologize. There I said it. I'm still a bit dubious though. You second pic is telling. You did a fantastic job on the Hellcat. Forum, I'm not worthy.

    How did you go about building the base? You have some help with that?

    Matt, you're cracking me up! I think we might be out of a 'modelling job' in a couple of years from now! Great work for a relative newcomer to the hobby.
