Very impressive build of a really interesting bird - beautiful in her unique lines - and doubly impressive with your hand-painted spiral on the radome, Don! From the first I had assumed it must have been a huge decal.
And it's equally valuable to have your perspective on these kits - after building all of 'em, some multiple times - regarding which one is really the best. (Looks like you got a great deal, for only a dollar!)
But, where do you store all these builds? I know you don't have a dedicated "model gallery room" attached to your house - and don't have your models spread around your house, either. So, where/how are you keeping, for example, the other 4 of these E2's? This is a matter of more than just casual interest to ops over here at Chez Matty!
Meantime, Bravo-Zulu on another just gorgeous build, buddy! (Does that mean you're ready to do a U-505 with us, yet?)
