He's tells me that he's completed the sale of most of his 1/200 models, except for some favourite ones.
There is no doubt that the forum is all the poorer for his absence.
True. The forum didn't use to be a place of fake posts or fighting over best manufacturers or models. Rui left for many reasons and we miss his posts where we could see models from ARD and many other professional pics he used to post.
I got some models from him and is a really cool cat. He now collects larger scale models and hope to see him back some day.
