This would be one of my earliest Tamiya kits; built, I think, around 1995. I recently read a magazine article by a fellow modeller about his problems with using the right colour for the topsides & the more I looked […]
Earlier this afternoon my Hien arrived. Needless to say, I am very excited about it! This new kit can be summed up in one word. FANTASTIC! Tamiya has produced another 1/48 scale masterpiece. As promised here is a kit review: […]
1/72 Italeri, I modified the rotor head, replacing some parts to separate the two rotors, finished in MM enamels with I think Tamiya X22 and MM 30000 over kit decals.
Some pics of my Tamiya 1/48 Lanc tastefully shot against the lurid backdrop of our back-bedroom! – Sorry about that but the finished model is so large it had to go somewhere uncluttered and it was still raining outside. I […]

Another silly take on what could have happened…. This was an experiment in flaking paint as well as another captured trials aircraft. Cheers!
