by Sebastijan Videc on October 23, 2016 · in Aviation — 4 Comments

MiG-29, despite being one of the most popular modern fighters, was poorly served by the scale modelling industry. Italeri’s kit, which until just recently was deemed the most accurate of the currently available kits (though it had its fair share […]


Today at Chino

by Tom Cleaver on October 23, 2016 · in Aviation — 4 Comments

I suspect this is the place where people will “get” this post. Today was one of the happiest days of my life. I got to meet my grand nephews, Nathan and Sam, for the first time, and they’re like me. […]


MonoFix SHAR FRS.1

by John Martincevic on October 21, 2016 · in Aviation — 7 Comments

Before Kinetic released the British 1st Gen. SHARs the only good way to build one was a kit-bash. Here is my bash from 2013/14. There is too much to describe here so I have included a link to my WIP […]

There was another photo that I now can’t locate, an air-to-air photo of three Eurofighters, with the caption, “The Royal Air Force – like the Army, but for smart people.”

by Marc Barris on October 19, 2016 · in Aviation — 38 Comments

This is a kit that I have wanted to build for a long time, I want to try and build as many 1/32 SAAF Aircraft as I can, so this Gladiator was one kit that I had to have, I […]


F-16I Sufa (Hasegawa, Eduard, 1:48)

by Christian Ristits on October 19, 2016 · in Aviation — 9 Comments

This one I have built a few months ago – always wanted an Isreali F-16 as the camo is really nice. It is not 100% correct, as I have airbrushed free-hand. I have used an Eduard PE Set for the […]

Otaki 1/48 Focke-Wulf FW-190

by James Kelley on October 18, 2016 · in Aviation — 6 Comments

An old kit from the 1970s, but went together very well. No putty or filler needed anywhere. Painted with Gunze-Sangyo acrylics, and markings are from an old Cutting Edge sheet. The only modifications done were drilling out the gun barrels.


Hasegawa 1/72 RF-101C Voodoo

by Greg Kittinger on October 18, 2016 · in Aviation — 25 Comments

Started this over two years ago. Got a bit distracted trying to decide what to do with all the raised panel lines that got obliterated by sanding down the seams, and other builds seemed like more fun! In the end, […]
