This is the Tamyia 1/35th scale kit with some scratchbilt to make it an ambulance vehicle. I also scratchbuilt the mud chains for the rear tyres.

Kit – Hobbyboss 1:35 Paint – All Tamiya acrylics. Decals – SuperScale/Squadron 350001 Extras – None. Completing this so soon after the Leo is entirely coincidental. I bought this on impulse in 2011, and started the interior almost as soon […]

This kit is effectively the 1/48 kit scaled down, and Eduard have done a great job of cramming as much detail as possible into the smaller version. Surface detail was superb, and the fit of parts virtually perfect except where […]

Hispano Suiza 8Ab 180hp Roden 32nd scale

by Robert Aspinall on August 13, 2015 in Aviation -- 7 Comments

As a break from my Mossie build I thought I would “knock” this together, but you know me. The soft detail and vague fitting made me want to see what I could do with it so break out the wire […]

I built this kit a while back. I have seen this aircraft at Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum/Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center at the Dulles Airport in Washington DC. It is HUGE! I ran across some photos taken right after […]
