straight out of the bottle



Certainly my preference 9 times outta 10, but sometimes I get a bit fancy and try to mix up a cocktail.

Great finish, Terri! Everything looks great and the little details really stand out. The aotake color looks like the color of the foil wrapper for Trader Joe's honey mints.

Looks terrific, Terri! Very well done. To me the Zero is the most elegant japanese aircraft of WW 2. Need also to build one again. Have some in my stash ....

Wow Terri, you really flew through this build! Everything about it looks high level, but I think the "office", your take on Aotake and the overall paint job really look the biz! Great work as always, and maybe someday I'll be able to get through a build as quickly as you while retaining the quality of construction.

Terri,
Don't think I've ever heard that before, but you flew through this build at warp speed for sure. Yet your final results are up to your high standards for sure.

So what's next build on your workbench?

Uh?!? Done in 13 days and looking like that? C’mon Terry, what superpowers do you possess that in a mere 2 weeks time you can deliver such a great model like this one.
Amazing, just amazing

Great choice. Tamiya of course, but which scale?
