1/32 Zoukei Mura Ho-229 Opus 2 Number 1

Here's my almost nearly completed 1/32 Zoukei-Mura SWS Ho-229. This thing has taken me months to complete, but the work was worth it. I highly recommend this kit to more experienced modellers. I painted it with Tamiya, Mr Hobby, AK, [...]

Painting wood panels on the Zoukei-Mura 1/32 Ho-229

This turned out to be a lot more complicated than I originally thought. The final model is going to be a weather-worn example with lots of faded paint and rust. I performed some tests and came up with a scheme. The panels that weren't [...]

Finally finished the 1/72 Amodel Mi-6 Beast

This was a 5 month long build. It gave me trouble from the start. Absolutely nothing fit.

1/72 Amodel Mi-6 Helo

The new 1/32 Zoukei-Mura Hs-129

Finished this a couple of months ago. My build will be featured in the upcoming Concept Note for this kit. It's the usual superb Z-M quality with a tremendous amount of detail and precision fit. I painted it in an Eastern Front color [...]
