Work on the site continues and the response I keep receiving from the readers only two weeks after the site’s official launch is nothing short of fantastic. I received a number of emails, contributions (especially from modellers, thanks to all!), questions, comments. It’s all overwhelming and I will try to do my best to put everything online along with my own material which is in preparation.

A teaser for the forthcoming updates comes today in the form of this photo. Tim Prosser’s model photography is nothing short of excellent and should teach us all one or two things about realism in modelling. The photo below shows one of his Spitfires, Mk. IX in the markings of Dutch Indies. I turned the image to black-and-white to add to the illusion, but everything else is as it came directly from Tim’s camera. And, mind you, the model on this picture is in 1/72 scale – about 13 cm in length!
