Steffen posed his Wildcats on a Mark58 tropical diorama base during his recent visit to the company, and the photos were taken by none other than Marc Toillie himself. Steffen modified his FM-2 extensively using Vector's resin correction sets.

About Steffen Arndt (alpha_tango)
FROM: , GERMANY

I was born in 1974 and started modelling in the 80ies. The first models I remember are a MiG 21 F-13, Saab Draken (both 1/100) and the Tu-2 (72) all from the east German producer Plastikart. during my first years I built all kind of models mainly 1/72 and 1/100. Beside the mentioned Plasticart kits ...

Thanks a lot Rowan! Of course both aircraft were carrier based and the situation is not fully suited, but it sets the models (Nick these are actually 2 ) in perspective. I have a Build log for the FM-2 and for the F4F-3 there is at least this thread ... just if you want to read a bit about the construction .... thanks for the kind comment Nick! all the best Steffen

Hi Steffen, nice Wildcats you have made, I also like these Hobbyboss kits (have all version in my pile, as I also want to build some Martlets). In the meantime this dio is well known here. I visited Mark last weekend, because I had some Vietnam Warriors for him. With this perfect weather on Saturday, we took some pictures of my latest Warhawks on his dios ..... Happy modelling Torsten

Thank you Torsten and Jesper! @Torsten: yes we have (mis)used his Dios for several settings already, haven't we. and the garden gives a very nice background... all the best Steffen

Nice work, Steffen- gotta love those Cats! I've been quietly following your builds and have enjoyed them immensely. I have a Hobbyboss F4F-4 and the Eduard brass sets- gotta finish a couple of builds so I can dig into a "simple" build! ;D Cheers on a great diorama- chuk

Thank you Chuk and Yoni! hey Chuck .. I am enjoying your threads too, though i think you go over board with some aspects of your builds, so it would be nice to watch a "simple" build of you as a diversion cheers Steffen
