Fantastic!  The paint and weathering along with your usual well planted stance of the model (IMPORTANT!!  IMHO anyway

Hi,

 

From the single picture I succeed in viewing, it looks to be exquisite!

 

However, am I the only one in Europe who has huge difficulties to see the pictures in the thread?

 

Unfortunately, it is not the first time I have this problem with pictures hosted on smugmug... :-(

 

BR
