Based in Stockholm, Sweden, and South Australia at times. Armour, soft skin, aviation, weird contraptions, anything goes on my build table.

Mr Ugly, a mail delivery van with a sting

Had an AMT Ford ´40 Delivery van in 1/25 scale lying in my cellar since 2005. The quality wasn´t great and I had lost my heart finishing it right after opening the box more than a decade ago. The good […]

Airfix 1/48 North American P-51D Mustang – Kit Review

This is a review of the new (2017) Airfix model kit of the ever popular P-51D Mustang in 1/48 scale. Box number is A05131. I suspect we don´t need to waste any time and space on the P-51 history so […]

Bobcat Model 1/48 Yak-28P Firebar – Kit Review

A Yak-28P, who would have thought we would have a nice rendition of this important cold war warrior. It doesn´t come closer to a more Flash Gordon-esque aircraft than this, with huge engines, pointy things sticking out here and there, […]

GAF Jindivik Mk 203B

Another Jindivik? Yep. This one was photographed at the South Australian Aviation Museum in Port Adelaide, a short ride by train from Adelaide city centre. From a distance they look much the same but once you are up close you […]

Jindivik towed target

The Jindivik drone could be fitted with a number of pods, wing extensions, flares and towed targets. The photos are showing the target that is displayed with the JIndivik at the Classic Jets Fighter Museum at Parafield, South Australia. Included […]

GAF Jindivik Mk 303A

And now to something completely different…a drone! In 1948 development begun in Australia to find a suitable unmanned aircraft for missile test purposes. In 1950 a manned prototype called Pika was flown for the first time and the unmanned GAF […]
