This is a resin kit by Taurus models. Lukasz, the owner is a really nice guy, and very helpful.
The model is 1/32, and is about 90 odd resin parts, some the size of a splinter! It's very very challenging.

The model was finished in Extreme Metal paints, with a wash to bring out the detail.

Some of the smaller parts!

The OXO cube is the traditional scale cube over on the Partwork Model Forum!

Thanks Alan. It’s a beautiful kit. Full of carpet monster food too! I have no idea how Lukasz makes the masters. Think he must have studied at Hogwarts.

The Taurus stuff is insane. I’ve got the Bentley, and it makes this look like child’s play. (Haven’t started it yet, still waiting for my bionic eye to arrive)

I’ve got the Cleget 9B in my stash. The casting of the fins is unbelievable. Another very complex kit, but the quality is superb. I’m next in line for the bionic eye!
