J2M3 Raiden, Hasegawa’s new 1/32 effort, done last year. A marvelous kit, a real box-shaker. Built OOB, spent more time on the cockpit “good luck doll’ than the paint job. Looking forward muchly to Hasegawa’s upcoming NIK2 Shiden hopefully later […]

Trumpeter Sukhoi su-25 / czech

by Henrik Stormer on March 6, 2013 in Aviation -- 10 Comments

I’m a very sloooow modeller, so it took me a year (exactly) to complete this big bird. I really enjoy 32 scale models, but where the heck does one place them when they are done??? Anyways, the model was a […]
