    This is gorgeous work. Very well done my friend.
    When I was young I used to say "When I grow up I'm going to be somebody!"

    I now realize I should have been more specific.

    Block production.


    Turned from a thick nail.




    Nail through the centre had to be hole. Lathes not take 0.6 mm drill, it had to take more precise tools.






    Blackened.


    And finally, result.

    Hello Povilas. Beautiful work and excellent detail from a talented young person. This could not be the first model you have built. I would like to see other models you have built.

    Dave.

    Several my built other models, nothing impressive. Started collecting wooden sailing ship, but only completed hull. I turn now to do a drawing, because the paper has not satisfied me. And I like working with wood and metal.

    Card plane Polikarpov I-16.



    Card plane Hanriot HD-1.


    Card helicopter Apache.


    Card cars - Ford.


    Plastic car- Mercedes.


    Big card sailing ship Kruzenshtern.


    Towariszcz


    Scratch-build Lithuanian borderline guard ship- "Partizanas".

    Thanks For clarifying the management wings.

    Started, but incomplete chassis.Contrary to the chassis of the rear coil to stretch, rather than squash.

    I want to ask for metal casting, use of any material and dilute tin? I am a speech to the Russians, that is low-melting solder (who called- ROZE) to tin the liquid to the water, so the appearance of very good quality. What material you are using a casting tin liquefaction?

    Started to collect the fuel tank. I can turned, but I think the soldered will look better and realistic.
