    especially the pilot, one of the best I've ever seen!

    Rather nice, and I also like the pilot figure. Good work.

    Thanks all.

    The pilot stands only 27mm tall. He's from the Eduard Luftwaffe ground figures set and he sure tested my patience! I have one of those large magnifying glasses on an extension arm clamped to my bench and it has a fluorescent light on the back to illuminate the work. Couldn't have done it without this tool.

    beautiful work on Klaus's A-8....

    for historical purposes the name "tough guy VII" was all painted in red.

    More pics as requested. Unfortunately I already picked my best shots. Need a Macro lens.

    Erich, hadn't heard about the writing being in red. I was at the mercy of the decals and photos of the plane didn't lead me to question the yellow. Any references you have would be appreciated as I like to have as much accuracy as possible.

    Despite accuracy, the sharper eyed amongst you may catch the fact that I screwed up on the starboard side cross on the wings and misplaced it relative to the port. I didn't notice it until several weeks after I had it on display.

    This is the lot:

    Very nice pic Erich. It looks a little more worn than most LW aircraft.
