Well, naturally, I had to have a look at the 'Egg of the ApeDog' first....and when I have an afternoon to spare, I'll go thorugh the
 388 thread :)

 The IAR is coming along nicely - I liked the old style lettering better, but I can see (nyuknyuk) the reason for the change.

Great build, I have to say your style of illustrating your progress is really refreshing!

Just been through your Ju-388 build, jaw droppingly amazing, you are an artist in 3 dimensions!!!! I'll be saving lots of your pages as "how to .... " guides!!! 8) 8)

Can't wait for more of your IAR-81C sculpting (build seems so clunky a word for wot U doo!!) 8)

Thanks, guys- you are so kind!

I've run through some rough patches on this build- but perseverance pays off.  Not even a vamp like Magda can trip me up!

Wow what a fantastic update! Your detail work is mind-boggling and up there with the greats, Chuk!

I totally understand about bad things happening while modeling. Unfortunately, my bad modeling muse looks more like Margaret Hamilton than the fetching Magda.

I'm surprised you get ANY modelling done with Magda hanging around the place!  :D :) ;)

The sad fact is, being and Australian, that's not what I think of when someone say Magda, now Dorota on the other hand recalls much nicer images.

My modelling always seems to be a bad day! (It may have something to do with my lack of skills & exasperating impatience.)

Yet, sometimes, something worthy of not smashing results.

However, nothing comes close to your builds, Chuk! Not sure they're even on the same planet.

That's a great update, chuk and I feel your pain about the cowling hiding all those nice details.

That Lili can give me a "tour" any time!

Thanks, fellas!

Well, it's been a while- we've been dealing with personal issues, some good, some not so good.  We had our twenty-fifth wedding anniversary- good!  My brother-in-law's 60th birthday- good!  Some dear family members in ill health- definitely not so good.  My wife and I are hanging in there- think good thoughts for our mothers if you feel so inclined- thanks! In the meantime, I have been stealing a moment here and there at the bench, and having fun with this elegant little project.
