An absolute tour-de-force, Chuk!

I've always had a soft-spot for the IAR 81, and it's a treat to see one being built so superbly!

Many thanks, my friends!   I'm glad you liked it- I'm glad it's over at last! ;) 

Now, for my next project I'll be finishing up one from my Shelf of Doom:  http://www.modelersalliance.com/forum/chukw/147831-well-provisioned-lil-chuk-builds-some-targets

Then, it's a Vietnam US aircraft in 1/48  Stay tuned!

I was digging through a box of WIPs I haven't opened in years and found an F-4J(UK) almost complete and and F-4S at about 30%, amongst other things. The J just needs final paint, under carriage and ordinance. 

Give me another decade or two and I might get it finished. :(
