I think that the Key is to criticise when asked, in a supportive way. As
others have said, the skill level to acheive the "LOOK" of this model is
incredible. Is it Correct for this Aircraft? Probably not. Pictures are I
believe available. Most of you may not realize this but 15 to 20 years ago a
weathered Model was dismissed without notice in an IPMS USA contest.It did
not matter if it was WW1 or WW1 part 2. I personally talked to an IPMS judge
that said Weathering was a tactic to cover Flaws in the model!!! Thank god
we have progressed to a pont where realism in scale is not only acceptable
but the Norm!
Again the DV weathering is probably overdone for realism, but OH What a
LOOK! I wonder how he (or She) Acheived the weathered Lozenge?
