Very impressive-the plane is first-rate, and the scenic elements are brilliantly conceived and executed. Great work, Jean-Luc!

If I may make a few comments..

1. The planes props blades would be sandblasted after just one take off from a desert strip. Not sure if the STorch had wooden or aluminium props.

2. I don't think they would allow any animals near the delicate Storch. Horns and fabric covered surfaces don't really mix..

Just some comments on a fine diorama Jean-Luc.

Thank you for your comments.

Not at all. You are right, the next time I will remember to weather the animals as well...

This is a sweet diorama Jean-Luc, and as a farmboy I've seen clean cows before. Especially after a heavy swedish summer rain. Go for that explanation

I've never really considered considered the Storch but since we had them in the swedish air force it's been on the maybe-list. However, I had the honor to see a formation of six (6) this fall, and now you tipped the scales with this one. Got to get!
