"I have seen Robert Doepp's excellent modelling work on WWII motorcycles previously, so when I heard that AFV Magazine was publishing a new book on an all-new work I was interested to say the least. For those who are not familiar with Robert's work, he has published articles with several models and bikes most notably in publications like AFV Modeller, Dioramag, Landscapes of War and others – all great articles in their own right, but this time he deservedly has a book all to himself. It is called "BMW R75: Escaping from the Falaise Pocket".

I don't know if everyone knows that tradition in pantomime….the kids all cry "He's behind you!".

Well this makes me want to say "Look up, up, not there, in the sky! They're above you"

They look a bit well scrubbed to me. I would add stubble and grime.

One hell of a model!

I note that its 1/9th scale, so a pretty large one too!

Although, that probably explains the quality of finish, given the amount of airbrush work involved. That said, you still need the talent to pull it off!

Happy you like it too my friend!. (smile)
