Very Nice

Silverinvicta,

The "masters" of this hobby we all share sure know how to take it to a completely different level, don't they? It becomes art.

Pretty fly. You are fortunate to have that in your possession.

Well Done

The proportions are very pleasing and the wing is beautifully set. Lovely fly and well done!
