Eduard MiG 21 MFN 1/48 Czech Air Force

Hi there, This my recente project, one of those very nice Eduard Migs 21. Used canopy masks, interior PE and metal pitot tube. No issues at all and, despite being a little bit worried about the "tiger stripes" decals, they turned out great. Ver[...]

Hasegawa A-7D USAF 1/48

Hello! This is my recent project, a nice kit of this iconic jet. It's an old toll, and it shows it in some ways, but it also can be built into a nice model . Except fot the canopy masks, everything OOB. All my references showed these USAF bird[...]

Airfix B-17 G 1/72

Hi there, This is my recent project, a nice Airfix kit. Not my usual scale, but this bird in 1/48 just won't fit my space here. Except Eduard Masks, a must for all these clear parts, everything else OOB. Fitting is nice in general, except [...]

Tamiya 1/48 P-47M

Hello! This is my first finished project this year, the very well known and praised Tamiya P-47 1/48 kit. Nothing to add, really, a superb kit. Only some small stencils did not behave well and......disintegrated. C'est la vie! Since these espe[...]

Tamiya 1/48 F4U-1A Corsair

Hello, This is my Corsair, a well known and excellent kit from Tamiya. Everything OOB except for the masks for the canopy. No issues at all and the decals were really good. Hope you enjoy. Cheers!!

Airfix 1/72 Avro Lancaster

Hello! This is my recent project, an Airfix Avro Lancaster, 1/72. I usually build 1/48 aircraft, but this one would have a 60cm wingspan, too big for my space. Having built a few nice Airfix new tools, I have to say I was a little disappointed[...]

Tamiya 1/48 Douglas Skyraider VNAF

Hello!! This is my VNAF Spad, a very nice kit from Tamiya. Used some Eduard PE and decals from AOA, since the originals were too old. Cammo was free hand painted (Gunze) and I scratch built a few details, like the wiring to the ejection seat sy[...]

Eduard 1/48 Hellcat F6F-5

Hello! Here's my recent project, an Eduard (Profipack) Hellcat F6F-5 Late. It means PE, canopy masks and resin wheels included, which is great. Everything went fine, this is a very good kit. Even after I dropped some varnish all over the ri[...]

Hasegawa 1/48 USAF F-86F

Hello! This is my post Korean F-86F from Hasegawa. Very nice kit, no issues at all. Since the decals were quite old and "yellowed", I got a new set from Aeromaster. Metallic paint were automotive types and the rest from Gunze acrylics. Hope [...]

Airfix 1/48 Ju 87B Stuka

Hello! This is my recent project, a classic WW2 warbird. Nice kit, everything went well. Unfortunately, the clear part, which would allow to build a full open canopy, came damaged beyond repair. It had a L shape hole right on the top. So, I had[...]
