I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

They are starting to scale some of it down Greg. The 1/48 Shinden was at Telford

When you look at the Zoukei-Moura stuff you can't help thinking that it would be an outright shame to build them all buttoned up.

I agree.  In fact, I would be tempted to build and display them without the skin or maybe half and half.

Hell's bells! The complexity of these things is starting to make a 1:1 scale replica look like the easy option... :icon_surprised:

If you manage to build that model, I suspect you'd be well qualified to build that 1:1 scale one!  ;D

I have been able to avoid the siren call of their kits up to this point, but a 1/32 Horten, clear fuselage, that's making me insane! There's no way i can justify it, but it beckons me, it calls me.....
