Miniwing 1/144 Bell-206b Jetranger (Croatian Air Force markings)

Another tiny project completed...and this was really tiny. I had a chance to fly in real one almost 15 years ago, then I made one in 1/72, now I tried to go even smaller. I found restock of Miniwing Kiowa OH-58A at my favorite shop, and [...]

1/144 AFV Club CH-124 Sea King RCN

1/48 ZVEZDA Su-25 Frogfoot (Grach)

I don't choose my models, they choose me. I see a picture in my head and try to make it happen. Some time ago I saw a video of Frogfoot firing unguided rockets and had to put all my projects aside until I recreated what I saw. Zvezda was [...]

Great Wall Hobby; 1/48 MiG-29 Fulcrum

I've been waiting for a while to get my hands on decent Fulcrum kit. In last moments I resisted to get cheaper Revell and Academy kits and decided to save money for GWH. I must say, this kit is worth every penny. Perfect fit, not simple, [...]

1/35 Revell OH-58 Kiowa, Croatian Air Force

First out of two Kiowas in my stash is completed. I've started simultaneous build of both Academy and Revell models. One is for myself, other one is commission build. Since I have to put commission build model in more or less [...]

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.
