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[...]

Hasegawa 1/48 F-15C USAF Aggressor

Hello! I've always liked Aggressor's scheme for the Eagles, so as soon I got a F-15C kit, I went after the right decal set for this scale. They're from Two Bobs and everything else is OOB. I scratch built the ACMI pod from a AIM-9, so this bird[...]

Academy 1/72 F-18F US Navy

Hello, This my recent project, OOB. A really easy kit, nice fitting and engineering. The only, and big, complain are the decals. They're virtually useless, way too thick. So, I put it on hold and waited for a new set from ebay. Hope you enjoy! [...]

Academy SBD-5 Dauntless 1/48

Hello, Just finished this one here. It's the old Accurate Miniatures reboxed by Academy. I've been reading a lot of praising for this kit, the best Dauntless in this scale, a classic etc etc. Well, I have to say, not a bad kit, in general, but[...]

Academy F-4 J US Navy 1/48

Hello, Here goes my last project, entering the "phabulous" Phantom World. I've chosen the Academy kit because I've read some good reviews about it. But, I must say it wasn't a flawless building. I've encountered a few issues like a step betwee[...]

Hasegawa 1/72 Mosquito Mk IV

Hello! A friend of of mine had this kit for years, never tried to build it, but then he knew I was a modeler and, well, you know the rest. Not my favorite scale and, if I knew about this canopy assembly, with two halves to be glued and very har[...]

Hasegawa 1/48 F-104C Starfighter USAF

Hello!, This is my newest project, a cold war icon. It really brings speed to one's mind just to look at her. Nice kit, decals ok, one or two almost were ruined when leaving the film. Another one I did it myself, with some Tamiya extra thin glu[...]
