You sell yourself short, sir! Both look very sharp!  :-* :-* :-*

Weathering looks fine to me; aircraft are never going to be as mucky as AFVs, subtlety wins out here (although Mitsubishi did use notably crap primer in their factories, hence the very "mottled green over silver" look a lot of their output acquired...)

The recessed panel lines on the Zero suggest this is perhaps the modern and far superior Airfix offering from 2011 that replaced the previous incarnation that had served since 1959(!) As for the Vengeance, you give me hope that I can knit a similar leather purse from the one I have in the stash (though I will be swapping the cartoon rear pintle Browings for something else...!)

If those aircraft are the results of apathy and laziness then I have to wonder how good your real effort would look as they are stunning.

A dug-in Panzer II based on wartime photos... built by Johan (Gunbird on the forum) and painted by me!
