I know what you mean Jim. The paint jobs he imparts to his models are like a signature......you know it's Frank! He makes them look so good I just might have to have a go in this scale! (Get more on my shelves anyway!) :-) Vinnie

Hello, Wonderful job there Clanky44!. That is an absolutely flawless paint job! I really like the faded look too it, makes it look very realistic. I would have sworn it was 1/35 scale if I hadn't been told otherwise. I think you did a great job there. Hope to see more of your work, you are truly an artist! Best Wishes, Walter

That has to be one of the best paint jobs I have seen in a while and I don't impress easy. Hard masking that in that scale gives me the shakes just thinking about. Fine job and thanks for sharing. Shaun
