Art Instructor is my favorite Aircraft builder of your commissioned works.  He is an excellent craftsman.  Please convey this statement to him.  As for my pick of the lot, that will be the bf109 with its unique camoflauge it’s a challenge to blend all this different techniques into one easy flow!

Your friend, Toshi

Mrs. Toshi just purchased for me a Tamiya 1/48 Ki-61 via eBay, when it arrives, as always, I’ll do a WIP.  Thanks to M.Brindos and Model Maniac for the heads up and the inspiration in obtaining this kit for my next build.

Thanks so much for your kind compliments, Toshi. I'll let AI know that you appreciate his work. My favorite for this lot is the same with you. AI has never painted this type of camouflage before. He saw the box art and somehow he figured out how to do it.

The past week has been my most productive week ever. I built 16 kits in 7 days. Though my works are so basic clean build (no weathering), I enjoyed building them and I'm proud to show them:

Hi,

Ever since I 1st saw pictures and models of the Buffalo way back when I was in middle school back in the 70s, I have been fascinated by that airplane.  In adiition the barrel shaped Raiden & Thunderbolt are also fascinating planes.  It's really nice to see three well done builds of them all in one place.

You have done a great job.  Big Smile

Thanks so much for your kind comments, Pat. I never knew the Buffalo before until I got it as one of several hundreds kits from my friend, same as other kits in this lot. It was "Art Instructor" my main armor modeler who built all these planes. Now the 3 planes that you mentioned are all in one place in my latest display case, among other planes and armors. You can see how I display them here (22 images):
