Excellent Mark very decent builds! You seem very pleased with them. Any fit concerns or problems?

For anyone interested in this build here is the Aeroscale kit review.

Hi Stephen,

Thanks for the comments! No fit problems at all. Beautufully designed kit! I think the only drawback to the build was I had to be careful choosing the profiles I modelled. You only get one set of lozenge and one set of white fields for the wings (I masked and painted the white fields on the Romanian MAG).

Hi Mark:

Great looking models. I have yet to delve into the realm of an Eduard kit. Yours look really nice.

Thanks everyone! I took on a second job that's been keeping me pretty busy but I'm still getting a little modeling done on the side. I have a couple of projects I'm working on that are coming along and I'll post as soon as I have something to show.

Mark- The Dual Kit is awesome! Everything in the kit fits like a glove and is very well detailed and there is minimal rigging that made for a fast, hassle-free build.

They are both excellent models Mr. Mark

The "mask" in front of the engine make them look like an old car
