This model is made from the HK Models pre-series sprues that I got from Neil Yan in Hong Kong June 2013. Me and my wife were having our two week 20th anniversary trip in Asia. I had promised to the her that I will use only one day from theis two weeks for modeling. She knows that when ever we travel, I have to visit local modeling stores, museums and airshows, which she also likes a lot. 

It took me more than three years to finish this model. Here are some details:

Sorry about the pictures being several times. I made mistake somewhere when I was downloading them. I do not know how to delete the multiply ones. 

Now I know and it is cleaned :0)!

You are in the Wingnut Wings "Ready for inspection" sub-forum of the LSM finished work.

I am the first to admit this is a bit confusing, but it was, I believe, a decision at the time to have a special focus area on WnW WWI kits. Probably not necessary anymore now, as they have become "mainstream" for a lot of modelers.

As for moving your thread, this is admin privilege, so you should ask the staff.

Cheers

Hubert
