    Nap - Just a small part of the tribal art collection I'm afraid. Glad you like the figure - I have ordered the next in the series.

    Warren - Very kind words, thank you. I couldn't live without daily putting brush to resin/plastic.

    Dont get me started, dont think some of these modellers have ever seen a real plane close up. Luckily a live a few miles from the museum at RAF Cosford and you look at these aircraft and their are ill fitting panels, bumps and lumps everywhere, yet they try to make sure the fuselages and wings are perfectly smooth with no imperfections or join lines.

    Very true Steve.

    One of the biggest surprises for me was seeing the Gemini capsule at the Science Museum. Talk about hand-made. No smooth clean finishes there, just robust engineering.

    Its a fine line between rivet counting, and inaccurate scale models... its knowing where, and when, to draw the line. I always treat models/figures as a hobby/artwork, and appreciate the effort, and don't get hung up on minor detail mistakes. But on the other hand, if you don't point out to somebody, something you think may/is incorrect, that person will not improve their work/skills.
    I think its great when people with years of experience and knowledge, share that, to help others improve. What I particularly like about PF, is that everybody here does that, in a friendly and non competitive manner. Unlike, indeed, on some other sites... lol

    Henk - Yes it is a fine line, and the thing to do is to accept that everyone has their own standards. I like to get things correct, but not to the extent than I have to do more research than painting.

    Pete. Thank you.
