    Very neat paint job, especially the camo of the Dodge considering it is in 1/72. Is it spray or brush?

    Many thanks Alex for allowing me to see your work at the office. Unlike your other posts, i can see these. I love the dodge but not the camo. But the laffy is simply brilliant. you have such a knack for these strange vehicles. The paintwork and weathering on the laffy is really nice. i suppose the dodge is a work in progress.

    Alex I do remember and I am SERIOUS & not trying to increase the posts. Way back in 1986, when we joined SSM, if I'm not mistaken you used to produce 1/72 and 1/76 like the pastries you make Laughing

    I see George Borg Marks (a fine gentleman that he is, in the same ranks of John Saliba IMHO) at the Airport from time to time, even if I go for months/a year without seeing him, but everytime I see him, I plead/beg him to RESTART as he was an Inspiration to even non AFV Nuts like me Twisted Evil

    Anyway keep them rolling Cool
