I was so excited about the last iteration of FiF, particularly the early war setup, that I've shall build this:

It's Eduard's 1/48 model. Each square on the cutting board represents 1 square centimeter. Thanks Butzzell, Luftritter and others for three months full of excitement of building this model (since you are responsible for it indirectly :) ) as well as for FiF  :D

Very fine work! Do I even see turnbuckles on those wires? That's incredible detail!

Yes you can. It's quite fun to pull 0.12 mm/1.8 kg fishing line back and forth through the tube with inner diameter of 0.25 to 0.3 mm made out of the thing for cleaning ears (sorry I have no idea what's the English term) :D Except it provides detail look, it strengthens the whole structure as well. Same like in the real airplane.

Well here in Florida, due to the large population of old people, the term "Q-tips" is slang for those folks that you see driving around in their cars.  It refers to what you see of them sticking up behind the dashboards of their cars...think about it   :lol:

 

Someday I hope to attain that status....   :P

Sadly, I shall never obtain this nickname, as I attained the "chrome dome" status around the age of 30.
