Scale modeller, software developer, jazz and metal fan from Ukraine. Prefer aviation kits in 1/72 and 1/48 scale.

Hurricane Mk.I early (Airfix 1/72)

Hi everybody! I have some issues with abnormal craving for early versions of a well-known aircraft – two-blade props, strange canopies like on an early Spitfire, strange camouflage patterns, and so on. And this is a very early Hurricane version […]

Brewster F2A-2 Buffalo (Tamiya 1/48)

Hi everybody! This is my latest build, and this one is something special. First of all, this is an iModeler build, started back in October 2015, and it took 2 years and 7+ months to be completed. And all I […]

J2M3 Raiden (Hasegawa 1/72)

I just don’t know what to write in addition to the photos. This is Raiden, one of the most beautiful airplanes I know. And this is Hasegawa in 1/72 scale – the classic kit. Completely OOB, 100% of fun. Glued […]

PZL P.7 of “Bajan Trio” (Arma Hobby 1/72)

A long time ago I’ve assembled several PZL P.7/P.11 kits from Poland manufacturer PZW Siedlce. This kit is still present on the market, but it could be treated only as a “classic” kit nowadays. But last year (2017) another polish […]

Avia BH-11 “Boska” (Kovozavody Prostejov 1/72)

No, this year is not over! One more kit should be completed before 2018 will arrive! – this is what I was thinking about last week. So, the result. Avia BH-9/11 is a tiny sport aircraft from the golden age […]

Spitfire PR Mk.XI (Attack Squadron 1/72)

And here is another one Spitfire from my side! This time, it’s a late and rare PR version, Mk.XI from Attack Squadron in 1/72 scale. This is a full resin kit with PE parts and vacuform canopy. Kit itself is […]

Spitfire Mk.I early (Airfix 1/72)

Spitfires, Spitfires everywhere… Maybe, somebody will say that this is boring – to post another one Spit, but I think that you can’t get too much Spitfires in your collection. And yes, that’s another one. This model represents an early […]

Rotachute Mk III (Fly 1/72)

I would never knew about this project without somebody from Fly company, who decided to create a model of this strange flying thing. Rotachute had no engine and it was using a well known autorotation principle. During WWII there was […]

Bf 109E-3 of Swiss AF (Eduard 1/32)

I’ve always wanted to try something on this 1/32 scale, where all things are big. And also I wanted to have some of those Swiss “Alpen Flowers” on my shelf, so I thought merging these two things is a plan. […]

Spitfire Mk.Ia (Airfix 1/72)

One of my iModeler Random Awards boxes has been finished – Airfix’s Spitfire Mk.Ia. I’ve pick this interesting scheme from ModelMaker decal sheet – airplane from No. 303 (“Kościuszko”) Polish Fighter Squadron in RAF, 1941. Except “super fabric” seat belts […]
