I've had this one on the shelf for a while - clearing the decks ahead of the group build!

Beautiful finish! I know my kids are going to see this and say, "Dad, about your next model ..." ;)

That's a beauty! :D I'd never seen that one before.

You could add a shot to our painting showcase - http://www.kampfgruppe144.com/phpBB3/vi ... =24&t=3795

Jonathan,

I know you have an affinity for the Orion! The Arii kit seems a lot less available these days...

Added a few pics to the showcase.

Just an update. Mark is selling this gorgeous model on evilBay: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/17592902556 ... SwNlVlFfon

He also has a very nice ARII Kawanishi Emily: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/17592904066 ... Sw7BllFf7u

And a beautifully finished Roden Fairchild Stinger: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/17592904066 ... Sw7BllFf7u

Cannot believe no-one is bidding on these. Not only are they excellent builds, but the starting price is very reasonable in each case, as is the postage. Indeed, the international postage is significantly less than what I was charged to send a small unassembled kit in a CD-type mailer to Europe earlier this week!

I've just bought a couple of kits from Mark and would have bid on the Emily if I didn't already have two. :roll:
