That level of detail is stunning, it's a shame a lot of it will not be visible when you close the fuselage, but you know it's there and you have the photos to prove it

Excellent work  :smiley: :smiley: :smiley:

I found the correct definition (I hope)  :smiley:

Crikey: True Aussies use it when they're generally suprised or shocked.

But you intrigued me (sorry I'm Italian...) who is your compatriot, Steve Irwin?

Compatriot = countryman = person of the same nationality


So, yes, Steve Irwin. ;)

You're assembling machine-guns, in resin & PE, in 1/72 scale? ???

I can barely cope with that in 1/35 & 1/48! :o

Worship is next on the list, me thinks. :icon_alabanza: :icon_alabanza:
