Gomidefilho this is an extremely beautiful build you have created. Your edges and lines are very sharp and clean. I am really blown away and then you show other military aircraft in comparison. To call this a great model is an understatement in my thinking. You can sit back and be very proud of what you have done. Also, your step by step photography was more then helpful to anyone who was interested in following in your footsteps to maker their own. My friend, this is more then a very clean model. Thank you for all the hard work on the build and sharing this magnificent aircraft with us all. The support aircraft really added a lot to your presentation. If I were to add one small item it would be something that would show the true scale of this model. Example, a coin or ruler or etc. if you understand were I’m trying to lead you but is certainly not necessary. Perfect ! A+. wc

Pericles,

Another clean build. Congratulations! But something that needs to be passed on. The national insignia on the fuselage is
way to far forward. And the wing insignia is to large and to far inboard. The USAF marking on the wing
is likewise to large and to far inboard.
