The Krazny Ritter: Captured ME-109 G, Revell 1:72, “Caged Warbirds” serie

As my fourth "Caged Warbird" built, I bring to you this russian ME-109 G, Revell 1:72. The inspiration, this captured plane seen in Pinterest: This model is not as good as it could be, a lot of ribs to cut, but finally I think the result w[...]

The Akutan Ronin: Captured Mitsubishi A6M2b-21 Zero, Airfix 1:72, “Caged Warbirds” serie

As the third specimen of my "Captured Warbirds" serie this one is quite interesting. This Zero was shoot down over Akutan, Alaska, in the Aleutian islands, in July of 1942. The plane was shoot in the oil return line so the pilot, Tadayoshi Kog[...]

Mistercraft Focke Wulf FW-190 A-8 Rammjager 1/72 “Captive Jaeger”. “Caged Birds” serie

Starting this new line of captured warplanes or "caged birds", I let with you my Mistercraft Focke Wulf FW-190 A-8 Rammjager, my Captive Jaeger. I got this design from Pinterest. What can I say, the kit is not very recommendable, the groov[...]

I-1 (IL 400b) ECM 1:72

Some 20+ years ago, I was a teenager walking his first steps alone in Santiago, capital city. I had built a Revell F15-E I bought in a school trip to Arica, full of mistakes but you know, what you build as a teen you love forever. Somehow I got[...]

Academy F4U-1A Corsair “Skipper Riley” 1:72

My dear son, 3 years old, is big fan of the movie "Planes", so I have seen it a couple of hundreds of times. When I proposed my kid to build a "Skipper Riley" F4U he jumped of joy, so it had to be done. As always, I build to test things. [...]

Airfix PZKW IV Ausf.b King Tiger Airfix 1:76

Ending the WIP shown in here is my King Tiger Airfix 1:76. This is the first armored vehicle I ever build. Was very fun to do, so eventually I will do more vehicles. The kit itself is very nice to work with. Very good fit. The only downside i[...]

RN Pola 1:350

Hi, I'd like to show you a ship I built on 2015. This is the Hobbyboss RN Pola 1:350, converted to RC ship. The kit quality is awful and several parts had to be remade and redesigned from scratch, like the mast, tripod and anchors. The mast was [...]

Hi, everybody. This is my first contribution as an article to iModeler. Some years ago I bought this Spitfire MK1a Starter Kit for my then 16 yo step son, but he never got interested in modelling. Anyway, some years later I found this when movin[...]
