    Hi Guys, i follow your site for many months but i havent post anything untill now. I am new to the modelling world and this is my second attemp. My name is John and i am from Greece.
    Spiros Pisanos was a Greek immigrant to USA and flew first for RAF with spitfire and when USA entered in WWII and accepted illegal immigrants to join the armed forces, he went and voluntered to join the USAAF, forst flying with P-47Ds and later with P-51 Mustung. You can find his story if you google for it. This is Pisanos and his aircraft

    Thank you very much for your nice comments guys. I am really pround of this ''lady'', it took me 4 months to finish it, because of the many trials and practice i did on ''dead'' models. As a begginer i had and still have to learn alot and your forum as well as the Greek one (ModelClub) that i also, primarilly (i dont want to offend you by that) post my work are the ones i keep tracking the most and are the biggest schools for me.

    Have a nice time

    John

    Really nice work my friend and welcome, I've only been on the forum for a short time but I have found that any modeling question I have can be answered by someone here. Based on your FIRST THREE builds I do believe some of us can learn from you already !!!
