This model belongs in a museum, so non-modelers can appreciate the quality!!!

Thank you for clearing that up! I saw it written both ways and didn't know why.

Great work, lovely model!

One nitpick: “spinne” is German and Anthony Fokker was Dutch, so the aircraft was call “Spin”.

The only person crazier than the scratchbuilder is the fool who agreed to fly the damn thing! All kidding aside, amazing work.

That is incredible work Nick. I wouldn't know where to begin taking on something like that. I'm in awe.

That is some splendid work there, Nikos! It looks like some sort of malevolent insect... wonderful!

Thanks guys! Your comments are very much appreciated. This was my first fully scratch built model and my first airplane. Learned a lot, most of all how to be patient...

Hi there

Wow! I think "impressive" is something of an understatement - that is pretty stunning! The rigging alone is an inspiration. Wonderful work Nick!

All the best
