Here are some pictures of my Smer 1/48 CR32 model, June 2006 MOM winner (thanks again for your votes guys!)
I''m also very proud to present the first "Harricature" prize in this "On Display" Feature. Only for that it is worth to take a look! Thank you very much Harri (jetprovost) for your fantastic drawing. It''s an honor for me to be the first to benefit from your generosity!

thats a nice bit of artwork and a nice kit, jean-luc, given the dubious nature of smer stuff!
i seem to remember someone was building this same aircraft in 1/72, i wonder what happened to him?...............

Hi Jean-Luc

Congratulations all 'round! A truly superb model and a great piece of artwork - combined with publishing your first Feature as an Editor!

All the best - and here's to it being just the first of many!

Hi all!

Thanks for your kind comments!
There used to be an UOM (User Of the Month) award in the past at Armorama. I think we should create an IOM (Idea Of the Month) award! The "Harricature" for the MOM is a brilliant idea. I couldn't imagine a better motivation: having one's model custom caricatured!!! Again, thanks a lot Harri (jetprovost)! By the way, how long did it take to make the drawing? I hope it wasn't as long as it took me to build the Smer kit.

I work with Harri and I'm priviaged to get to see all of his Harricatures. I don't know how long the CR.32 took him but I think that you will be amazed, when he tells you. Imagine getting all those struts in at the correct angles and he "just draws them" when I ask him how does he get looking so right. He recently completed a Gloster Meteor, which is stunning, and on sale at the Aeroventure aircraft museum, in Doncaster, which took him 3 hours. He didn't let me scan that one

Hi Jean-Luc,

I don't model aircraft myself but I think you'vre done a beautiful job here. Looks excellent and the setting is just perfect.

Cheers
