    Very nice Henk, I do like to see a well made and paint aircraft, but couldn't be tempted to try one myself.

    Oh, this one is neither very well made (plenty of seams that should really need to be filled and sanded) , and the paint is "approximate".. It's a quick build to have some fun, I've ordered a few figures, and will put it on a small base.

    Still a damned sight better than I could do.

    The trick with a quick build is to focus on the fun and not let it turn in to a "serious" build. That happens far too often with me. Sometimes we forget to have fun and have a bit of a diversion from what we normally do.

    They look really rather good, more detail.than I'd have expected in that scale. Will be good to see them painted.

    I'm quite impressed with the detail, and how crisp it is. These are better than a lot of Tamiya 1/35 figures .
    Like CMK of yore that I remember, the casting was flawless, no bubbles or missing detail. No clean-up needed, other than removing the parts (tiny, individual hands... ) from the pour plug, and cleaning that up.

    I'll just be using the two standing figures, as they fit better with what 91 Squadron was doing in April 1945.

    Yeah they are impressive little figures, are they resin or soft plastic?

    Resin. I've noticed a few spots that are going to need some filler. Wait... did I just consider using filler on 1/72 figures??? :censored::ROFLMAO:

    Oh no. Almost every aircraft I build I have a plan to add some figures, and I always buy some to go with the aircraft. But so far I haven't done any! They really do set off the plane and these will make a nice addition.
