Hi !

I never expected that this project can take me eight years. I thought about three or four years. Of course I had breakes, holidays etc., but it was about 2500 hours of work.

As base I used old Hasegawa kit, but it was only excuse to start this project, the rest is scratchbuilding.

My friend, Andrzej Ziober persuaded me to show this model so strongly opened. He is precursor of cutting all structure of fuselage from kit’s moldings.

 

First step

Wow ! 

That is the best model build I have seen in quite a while.

I really like the wing ribs you crafted and the corrugated aluminum skin on the tail.

Congrats on your awards, well deserved.

Thanks for posting.
