Well done Paul! Thank you for sharing that with us. I loved the TWE ending clip, "Let's drag our tails out of here!".

Jerry, that last photo you posted, do you know the story behind it? They look to be in dire straits...

Thank you Jeff. I really could not have done this model without the help from you, Jerry, Dave, and everyone else who has contributed to this forum. I'm just glad that I could present something worthwhile.

Paul,

Very nice work! Years ago I built PT 491 from the old Dumas kit (1/35 or so). A 1/72 scale build of this boat is on the bucket list. Thanks for the videos, some excellent observations of the details of the RON 33 boats.

The last photo of the guys in the life raft is a scene from a movie I forgot which one.

Paul;
Once again, Bravo Zulu-Outstanding work!
I have followed your model making since your Fine Scale Modeler article on your 1/32nd scale Jim Goodson P-51B.
Take care,
TED

Great work, will differently attempt to learn and use some of the fabricating techniques After watching the video its crashing back to earth time Paul's knowledge and skills make me fill like a rank amateur I can only hope my 105 builds turns just a fraction as good. Mike

Hi Paul,
I just got some time to watch part 2. I really enjoyed the machining of the brass pieces, especially the flash hiders. They are so tiny! You did a nice job bringing some class to the Revell kit. Thanks for sharing your work!
