    Steph, this is indeed a lovely build, I love the way you have got the weathered, dusty and faded paintwork. It was worth waiting for.

    Very nicely done Steph.
    It makes you wonder, when seeing an aircraft like that, that men actually went to war in them. It might have done the job, but some aircraft just don't look right, and the Buffalo is one of them. But you've captured the look very well, and a great overall finish with the paintwork.

    Lovely project, Stephane. I do like the combination of plance, color, and country markings a great deal.

    Now, the Wildcat, THAT looks right!

    Great job Stephane. Really like what you've done with that.
