An airplane modeller from Hungary near to 40. I make models for about 25 years now – I’m fond of esoteric kits, neglected types and the “Golden Age”. I love altering kits and scrachbuilding too. I’m recently in 3D modeling – just started but enjoy it too 🙂

Christmas came a little earlier this year (review on Modelcollect’s new tool 1:72 B-2 Spirit)

Hi Mates, I could not miss this commonplace title but this "little" kit just arrived from the manufacturer. I made a pre order (in 2016) practically when they just formed as a future manufacturer and annunced their plan to make a new-tool B-2. T[...]

Tips and tricks: how to work with acetate canopies and windscreens – part one: glue
