61 years old. 42 years as a modeler. I have built mainly 1/72 scale FAB (Força Aérea Brasileira), but I love really WWII aviation in general.

North American T-6G / Israeli Air Force

The North American Aviation T-6 is an advanced American single engine training aircraft used to train pilots from the United States and more than 60 other countries. I am particularly passionate about this plane, mainly for its use in the Brazil[...]

Airfix Fokker F-27 – 1/72 scale

I had the intention to build the old Revell Fokker F-27 in 1/94 scale as it brings me good memories, however, I had the Airfix model in 1/72 scale in my stash so I went with this model instead. Although this kit was injected in a 1960 mold, it [...]

Mach 2 – Sikorsky HO3S-1 – 1/72 scale.

Hasegawa Me-163 Komet – 1/32 scale

In my collection of built models as well as in my kit stack, I have few items from German aviation. But that's not because I don't like it, but because I usually have difficulty to paint german schemes. I decided to built this Hasegawa ME-163 Ko[...]

Naval Aviation Museum – Pensacola – FL – USA

I had the opportunity to visit this museum on 03/19/2019. For those who do not live in the USA, I suppose it is not an easy or cheap trip. But I planned this visit well in advance, within a larger 20-day trip, visiting several cities in Florida.[...]
