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 Kovozavody Prostejov Piper Pa-25 Pawnee Crop Duster

I don't even know what to say about this model. The idea of a crop duster in action came up to my head, thought about it for few weeks, finally found some time to isolate myself from the world and make it happen.

1/72 Kovozávody Prostějov Zlin 242L, Croatian Air Force, 93rd Base

93rd Air Base, or 93rd Wing of Croatian Air Force, was founded in 1992 with main purpose of educating and training future pilots. 93rd Wing consists of Helicopter Squadron and Airplane Squadron. Helicopter Squadron operates 8 Bell 206b [...]

1/48 EDUARD MiG-21bis Croatian Air Force, 22nd Squadron (1995)

After two modernized MiGs from 191st Squadron (https://imodeler.com/2019/06/1-48-mig-21um-bis-croatian-air-force/) I tried to go back to the past. 22nd Squadron of Croatian Air Force was formed on November 6th 1991 as predecessor of newly [...]

1/48 Hasegawa F-14A Tomcat

It's big, it doesn't fit into my display case. It's another US airplane. It's another dull, boring grey model. It's well aged... But it's Tomcat...you can't have a model collection without Tomcat! Few years back a bought an open [...]

1/48 AMODEL Aeroflot Yak-18t

Another member of my civilian fleet. Giving a minus to Amodel kit for unclear instructions and very fragile decals, besides that it was fun kit to build.

Kovozavody Prostejov 1/48 Marchetti SF260

It's been about 15 months since I quit smoking after 23 years of addiction. Consequently I found hard to spend hours sitting in one place assembling models, so I made a year long break from modeling. Whole this time this bird's been [...]

1/48 Kinetic Kfir C7

Not my favorite airplane, but a year ago I bought Hataka IAF paint set for cheap. After few unsuccessful attempts to use it (I changed my mind in last moment for A-4, F-4 and F-16 paint scheme) I decided to put Israeli markings on airplane [...]

1/48 EDUARD F-6F3 Hellcat

Fun little kit, out of the box. Eduard made it too easy with this one, no need for filling, sanding, correcting...everything fit like a charm. This was the first time I got a chance to compare Hellcat with previously assembled Bf-109, [...]

1/48 Italeri Cessna 172 Skyhawk

One of my shelves is reserved for small civilian airplanes, I always wanted collection of colorful Cessnas, Pipers, Beechcrafts etc. next to my usual collection of warbirds. This one's my first (civilian). I did not follow instructions, [...]

1/48 Italeri MiG-23MF Flogger

I wanted to add MiG-23 to my 1/48 collection for a while. Been aiming for Trumpeter but I found Italeri kit for a cheap price. It's not very detailed kit but it gave me much less headache than other Italeri kits I trashed away. Anyway, [...]
