    Thank you so very much, NOBI!:)

    Once again we are graced with a superb model from one of the great designers we are lucky enough to have as a member of our forum. I sure hope who ever builds this one would favor us all with a few photos.

    I wonder what the next project might be...ever consider doing a WWI aircraft? Or between the wars bi-plane? Just some thoughts....

    Thank you again!!

    Very nice model Nobi! One question though, it looks like there are 2 sets of wings in the kit. Is there a reason or am I hallucinating!

    One set with the landing gear retracted and the other not ?

    thanks and a satisified customer

    Thanks Nobi, again x 4.

    This is my fourth free model I've downloaded from you and I feel a bit guilty. So I made a real purchase with Thaipaperwork and am looking forward to building the Ki-46 as well as the Spitfire.

    I really enjoy your work.

    THANKS, Nobi!

    This is most generous. This is a fantastic model, with excellent detail and colors. It´s definately on the 'to do next-list', next to the superb Gotha Go. P60A Nurflügel/Flying wing model.

    Blue skies! (as Dan San Abbott says)
    Bengt :D

    Thank you NOBI for yet another fantastic model and free to boot. Well done. I now need to live several lifetimes to complete my backlog of models.

    New Builder Spitfire Question

    Thank you very much for the model. As a new builder this will be my first aircraft model.
    I did notice two sets of wings, one set narrow and the other wide. Is this a different model of the same aircraft? What is the best sequence to follow in building the model?

    Thanks for the help,

    RG Williams

    The Model Complete

    Well, here's the model.

    RG Williams, go as usual, first the fuselage (I go from middle to the rear then to front). Be careful with the wings. Two set of wings, one if you want to make it with landing gear, the other, without. I didn't success on the fairing much as I would. I also got lost on the wing tips a little. But it came up just fine.

    The wheels I made them out of 2mm cardstock sandwich, then sand them round, then paint.

    Hola, Gerardo,

    A beautiful build, indeed! It looks so real with the slightly shiny card stock. You´ve done it again - you never seize to impress.

    I have it printed now - I´ll try to find some time to build it, too.

    All the best,
    Bengt :smile:
