    The pics are still loading as I type - I think they need to be re-sized before uploading direct to the forum (800 x 600 pixels max).

    I understood. It might have been. Anyway you should resize your pictures to the 800 pixels in their width before uplading here. Those larger can cause a problem for computers of different hardware than your one. Please remember about it . It's always better if scrolling is smooth and quick than long waiting for uploading.

    BTW.. a nice collection.:thumbright:

    I like what you have done.;) The squilly on the 234 and Huma looks quite nice I take it it was hand painted?

    Very nice models. Congrats from another newbie! I also am interested in the squeebies on your Arado, since I work without an aribrush. They look hand painted, and I am tempted to try the same technique on my own Arado, sitting patiently at the moment in my "build me, build me" pile.

    Question: what do you mean by "not recommended" about the Do 335 by Revell. It's the kit I have. Are there fit problems? The instructions seem pretty clear on first reading?

    I really like the diorama you built for display. Moving the aircraft one at a time to it is brilliant! I am tempted to do the same kind of thing myself, being much better at diorama work than at aircraft modelling. Is that a large photo behind the diorama?

    Again, very nice work.

    Hi Javelin,

    as I admitted in another thread: I never mastered airbrushing. I use sometimes Tamiya rattle cans but mostly brushes. I try to use the same techniques, as in applying several thin layers etc.

    Everbody else: thanks for your kind comments, the low resolution pictures help ;)

    I am here to learn
