In this case I only have to protect the place there the linden leave was.
The best thing to do so is the Iron from Kostis.

That's what I call barnstorming! And from the look of the head on that statue this isn't the first time he's done it.

I've always liked that Airfix running Frenchman, I think it's a very realistic pose. But he's never made more sense than here.

The running nun is excellent, where is she from?

p.s. I've just noticed, the very English building on the left has lace curtains. Of course it has. :mrgreen:

From Germania- Figuren.
The resin (five nicely made different useful pose) set is called "Fliehende Nonnen" that means fleeing nuns. :-D

The head was with an helmet of a Spanish conqueror. Does not fit to a north- west France village.
That was one reason.

To the French man I agree with you.

Wiking, your fine unseen fixing point________ is a real artistic winner in this clever illusion of daredevil flight.
The story is further set to continue along with an avenue of playful banter. :-D
Beautiful Work. :thumbup: BB

I spend him creme/ white tire. Maybe not totally correct but I saw WWI plane with it.
If it is very unrealistic I will change it.

@Beano Boy
Thank you for your well done motivation.
:yeah:

His part in this scene will to be outmaneuvered.

My very first Eduard kit. Parts are well made. Fit of the parts are very good.
The photo etched parts are very nice but since I use a pilot to 90% worthless.
You see nothing. Register of the water slide decals are top.
Instruction by pic and description and color for each part are nice.
But at one page you have to us a MG with a hook. Next page the hook disappears and you have to choose between a clear plastic window or a photo etched part. But no one will work because the hook is in the wrong place by instruction or should not be there, maybe.
Minor trouble. All in all nice little kit with national markings I never seen before on a biplane.
One of a few reason I bought it.
