Great ship, setting, and pictures. I am a little partial to the Blue Angels paint scheme, but the Red Arrows scheme works nice on those Me-262's.

Thank you for sharing!

I am a bit partial against WW2 German stuff but well.. that's Pete's stuff so it deserves mention and frank apraisal as usual
The ship is really lovely and the picture setting tops as usual, I just miss some close-up pictures to the extraordinary job you've been doing!

Now I see what would happen if I took halucinogens before going to my modeling bench! Nice job Peter!

Well it seems that ship modeling has also some for "what if..."!
It is fun to see the display and the disposition of the models - a very busy scene!
I like also the fact that all the models are very well built (some close up shots, please, Peter), and this dio proves that we can built ship models accurately and still put some fun in it.

You just missed the smoke pots on the Me262 - you could have hidden some of those rods
Excellent Peter - so, what's next???

Thank you for your kind comments, everyone. Actually, the real life look of it is better as the rods tend to disappear into the background. I paint them dark grey and wonder if I should have used light grey, it never really works out as you would wish, however, photoshop is the way forward.

Detail shots? - only when I improve.
