Hello, I am 57 years old, I am the chief surgeon of a hospital in northern Italy. I love animals and I have a pug, a great dane, two maine coon and a ragdoll. As a kid I started to get excited about modeling, but since the university I have not been able to find the time for my hobby. From a a couple of years, during a period of illness, I started again, with considerable enthusiasm to devote myself to modeling. What you see is the result of this period. You can see my works also on Instagram at #surgeonmodeler

WWII Soviet airplane – 1/48

Hello again, these are two Soviet World War II aircraft kits in 1:48 scale. The mig 3 is a trumpeter kit, the Yak 3 is a Svezda kit. I must say that there is no comparison in quality. Trumpeter beats Svezda 2-0. The Mig is with a "nude look"[...]
