As a military pilot’s son, my early childhood was closely connected to airplanes, tanks and guns, so I dreamt of military career when I grow up. But then during ’90s I had a misfortune to see a war from up close and I realized I do love airplanes and tanks, but I don’t like the army.

So here I am, mid 30s lawyer, trying to stay in touch with my childhood love through plastic modeling.

1/72 REVELL Panavia Tornado GR4

This kit has been hiding in my stash for more than a year. Due to bad experiences with Revell kits I've always been pushing it aside...but then came that mandatory social distancing . Well, it's a nice surprize. The kit is well detailed for 1/72[...]

1/72 REVELL Canadair CL-415

Really not much to say about this kit. Not a bad kit, but decals are frustrating. Would have never bought it if I didn't get this idea for this mini diorama. Water and fire effects made out of silicone, isolation foam and cotton.

1/48 Kitty Hawk UH-1Y Venom

A beutiful kit by Kitty Hawk, I recomend it to everyone who is looking for detailed and quality helicopter kit. For $40 it includes detailed cockpit panels, colored paint/decal instructions and PE parts for seatbelts and fuselage details. Parts [...]

1/48 Tamiya F-16c Fighting Falcon

My 4 months journey with this kit is almost over. I decided to publish pictures despite Sidewinders not beeing finished yet, still waiting for ordered magnets. Words are not needed to decribe this Tamiya's kit. Real pleasure to build. I finall[...]

1/35 sf extraction diorama

First in many ways; this is my first 1/35 scale, first time I'm dealing with figures, first diorama... Anyway, after nine months work glad to say it found it's place im my home. I probably spent more time waiting for ordered material and figures[...]

1/48 MiG.-21UM/bis – Croatian Air Force

These are my first two kits I built 3 years ago. Nothing special really, rookie work, no aftermarket parts, no preshading, no postashading, bad weathering and decal silvering, but both planes are in nice and unusual color scheme so I thought I c[...]

1/48 Hasegawa F/A-18E Super Hornet

This beauty's been sleeping in my stash for almost a year before it came her turn. I never liked single seater version, big bubble canopy on twin seater is what makes Hornets beutiful, but this came as second hand purchase for less than $35. Bea[...]

Yufan 1/35 figures

This is the first step of future diorama, special forces extraction by UH-60 Blackhawk. Recently I came across excellent 1/35 resin figures and I decided to give a try at something other than airplanes. It was supposed to be US SEAL unit, but lo[...]

1/48 Tamiya A6M3 Zero

I was quite dissapointed when I opened this kit. Not many parts, not too much details, it seemed like underestimated myself. But, I had to add at least one Japanese WWII aircraft to my collection, and I did not expect too much from $20 kit. Stil[...]

1/48 Hasegawa A-4M Skyhawk

As the title says, last month I spent with wonderful Hasegawa kit. Model is pretty much out of the box, except I added pilot figure from old "decomissioned" Revell's F-8 Crusader. The kit itself was fun and easy to assemble, only con is lack of [...]
