Paulo sent me the story of his latest build, the EE-T1 Brazilian Osorio. He has given us a lot of the history of the tank as well as all the ins-and-outs of the Trumpeter Kit.

As usual if you have comments or feedback for Paulo please leave it here.

Thanks Paulo!

Cheers,
Jim

Thats a nice detailed article fore sure. That's the sort of article I like reading best. Not too many pages and text, but just with the right depth....

Just keep on bringing 'm in....

Danny,
Actually it would have been 8 pages or so if I had formatted like the older stories. But I am using a new template for the articles that I like better. What does everyone think about the "click on the picture" and get a pop-up window system??

Very nice jim: It gives you a good picture of the model but allows you to be able to continue reading the article.

Bryan,
Thanks! I thought it might help out for the dial-up folks. Which will be me when I am on my trip. I want to add a few more things and eventually have it so anyone could just plug this info in and make an article using a submission form. Kind of like the news and reviews area.

Well Jim,
I'm afraid my article wasn't so popular, at least just a few guys commented it
Maybe its due the odd subject...let's see if I hit the target for the next project

Don't worry Paulo - I liked it and your article style won't be alone. I've almost got mine done too. Jim might decide to leave mine on my site and just link it instead

Paulo,
Well I liked it! Don't be too critical of yourself. It's a unique subject matter and I think many people like to read about the more rare kits over time. Besides I am sure many of our Brazilian users will appriciate it!

Speaking of them (there are at least 15 users who selected the Brazilian flag in their profile info), they will probably take note once the Portuguese language version is published. Tonight hopefully!

Cheers,
Jim

Hey Paulo, Nice article and great photos. Don't think popular is important But I do think anyone building this kit would do well to read your article.

As to the format I think it works great. especially if the pic to the right compliments the subject within the article. :-)

Thanks for the kind words, guys and gal :-)
Jim, I was wondering when you gonna put the PT version on the site, I'd like you to include a link like the DISCUSS THIS ARTICLE on the portuguese version also, but directed to the Portuguese forum, you can write it in english and I'll edit it to portuguese...
again, thanks a lot for the attention!

Paulo,
Could you go ahead and post the topic there now (or soon) and just remark that it will be posted there tonight? I don't want the final impression to be that I speak Portuguese. I already get lots of users emailing me in Dutch and German now.

Then when I upload the article tonight I will reference that post.

Thanks,
Jim
