    First name: Bill
    Category: Middle somewhere
    Scale: 1/48
    Manufacturer: Accurate Miniatures
    Model Type: Yak-1b
    Aftermarket addons: Eduard Belts, and cockpit detail set. Someones wheels. And someone elses flaps.
    Decals: Yes, Authentic Decals, will have to revere 32 to 23

    Well finally she iss fini! I am happy with the results. A little nicer build than the last one at the finish. You will notice no Lily, Annie said it would just be too silly to put a water lily there. If we ever find a real picture of the lily, maybe then. Never the less another GB submission.

    it's an Aussie thing.

    Like the detailing in the cockpit, and fine canopy work, to top a lovely build.

    Nicely done Bill. But these shots seem to be a little bit too dark on my screen. I'm not sure about others here but it can be a problem with a correct rating the final product.

    Thanks Wayne.
    I am exceeding my own expectations.
    What more could one ask for. And, it's because of the examples shown on this site.

    Thanks to all who help so much...

    Great job Bill. As a photo tip, don't shoot against a white background as your subject will be darker. A light/medium gray or blue is best I find.
