I live in Sweden and I got back to the hobby when I turned 50 and got a model-kit as a present from my kids. After that things escalated quite quickly and I soon got a man-cave with a workbench, spraybooth and an ever growing stash

Trumpeter 1/72 F-105G “Wild Weasel”

Here's my latest finished build. The build went together quite well, with the exception of the rear part of the fuselage that caused a lot of extra work... It was painted with Gunze Aqueous acrylic paints and the weathering was done with 502 Abt[...]

Academy 1/72 F-22A Air Dominance Fighter – The Raptor

This is my latest build; the Academy 1/72 ADF where I have added an Eduard zoom-kit and the Aires resin exhausts. The resin sidewalls of the latter fitted really badly so I decided to scratchbuild the walls out of styrene sheet instead. The "rap[...]

Zvezda 1/72 Yak-130 Mitten – Russian trainer with an attitude

I built this kit as a buddy-build on YouTube and I was surprised about the quality and engineering performed by Zvezda. It's not far behind the top players in 1/72 aircraft (Tamiya, Eduard, Trumpeter et al.). Decals behaved well and the only dra[...]

It all started one evening when I stopped by a magazine shop at the railway station and bought a magazine about the Korean War. I read about Peter Carmichael's Sea Fury WJ232 and his kill on the jet-powered MiG-15. A couple of weeks later a Flee[...]

The Right Stuff – Bundesfighter goes to Hollywood

This build that I did as a tribute to one of my favorite movies - The Right Stuff, made by Philip Kaufmann in 1983. The Eduard 1/48 "Bundesfighter" kit (reboxed Hasegawa with some aftermarket) has the decals for the aircraft individual that wher[...]

My latest build – Revell 1/144 B-2 Stealth Bomber

Here's my latest build that I finished a while ago for a Bomber SiG. The kit itself is from 1994 and it has raised panellines, bad fit and lots of sinkmarks, but with some determination it's possible to put it together nicely. I used Begemot a[...]
