Prudenzio Contest - Mustang at 1/220

Overshot the downscaling by 10%, this mustang was originally aimed at 1/200. I noticed the discrepany after the build by measuring it. Anyway, here i is.

That is a stunningly lovely micro P51!
You have every right to be proud of this build, the model is gorgeous, and very neatly executed in both build and finish.

Kind and Respectful Regards Papermate, Uyraell.

You know, if you hadn't said anything, no one would have known about the slight scale error except for one anal clown with a vernier caliper, and you don't want to be hanging around that person anyway!

Nice build. Do you have itty bitty fingers? How do you build that microscopic stuff? Amazing talent!

Guess there's no point in me rushing a build of this model for the contest - there's no beating this one!

Thank you everyone for your kind words. Maybe I've got steady hands, thus I try and try and did it. There's in fact no big deal about building small scale models. Start by building a larger scale than 1/200, say 1/100 and then 1/144. When your eyes and fingers (of course using tools like tweezers) get used to it, then go for 1/200 and even further if you like.
