Russ,

I enjoyed following your build log of the Prinz, and with this photo essay of the completed model I'm enjoying it all over again! Thank you for this beautiful effort.

Thank you very much guys!

I'm hoping to submit better photos soon, so please watch this space.

(Now I see them on another computer, I can't believe how brownish they've turned out )

A Big thank you to my two Kiwi mates, Sean and Michael!

It took a while that's for sure, but at last she's finished and she's up on the top shelf in the display cabinet.
