Wow! I do not think it is humanly possible to create at this scale anything less distinguishable from the genuine article.

A very impressively finished product indeed! Congratulations!

Fan-****ing-TASTIC. That's really well-done. I may have to add one of these to my stash for a South Pacific airplane diorama.

Thank you Guys, such positive comments really Means a lot, especially when I dare to venture out of my comfort zone of German armor.
Bill: If I were you, I might go for one of the other versions, because the armor hides a Whole lot of nice details.

Yeah Jacob, I agree with the above, having studied these photos in great detail last night when preparing them, this is a very nicely finished model.

Thanks, Jacob. The vanilla version was ubiquitous in the South Pacific, so it would make a very interesting partner to a Corsair, for example.
