Born in Czech, currently living in Slovakia.
I am focused on building navy and marine aircrafts, but I like all of them ( almost all :).

XA2D-1 Skyshark – monster figher that failed (ClearProp 1:48)

It is big bird, looking either elegant and weird. It was planned as turboprop-powered heavy attack fighter for US Navy carrier decks in 1950s. However, Navy did not allowed the plane to operate due to troublesome power unit and due to its weight[...]

L-29 Delfin attending RIMPAC 2010 at LHD-6 Bonhomme Richard

L-29 Delfin development started in 50'. After being chosen as standard training aircraft in Warsaw Pact over 3.600 planes was produced in Czech. Delfin allowed traingin of aerobatics, gun shooting and bombing trainings as well as IFR flying tr[...]

F8F-1B Bearcat, VNAF 1st FS 1963

When I bought this kit, I was really dissapointed. Really poor in everything. I was almost convinced to put it into trash bin. But then I saw some works of one guy, who built really old fashioned and really really poor kits so nicely that I star[...]

OV-10D Bronco in “VF-84 tribute” paint scheme

It took me about 8 months to finish this Bronco in my favorite navy camouflage. If you wonder why I made up this scheme - this is my last build for my friend and he did not want to get Bronco in desert or boring gray camouflage scheme. I know he[...]

SG-38 Schulgleiter, 1:72, Liberec 1946

There were many training gliders SG-38 left by german army after WW2 in Czech. One of them is represented here. We remarked them to ŠK-38 Komár (Mosquito). At these days we can see many amateur replicas built due to simple construction, so they[...]

F-104G Starfighter, Eggbeck A.B. 1973

This is new tooled Italeri kit (scale 1:32) and it is very straightforward build with very few issues. I had troubles to glue rear part of the fuselage because when using kit the engine support I was 3 ° off axis (to right side). I decided to gl[...]

A-7E Corsair II, Trumpeter 1:32

As many successful constructions, also Corsair is real beauty beast - robust, durable, reliable, serving in many countries can deliver deadly ordnance to whatever target. Its upperwing allowing to carry large variety of bombs, rockets, electroni[...]

F-4J Phantom “Jolly Roger”

Scale: 1:32 Manufacturer: Tamiya This build is pure box with only few add ons - seat belts from plumb stripes, F.O.D by Quickboost and HGW stripes "Remove before flight". The kit is very nicely detailed and requires only very little effort to f[...]

L-13 Blaník /// Planet models /// 1:32

This is my last build in 2018. Mentioned as a gift for my father. The kit itself is bad as much as it gets. Cockpit is practically scratchbuild, there was almost nothing in the box (definitely nothing accurate). Wings connection to fuselage is w[...]

RAF legend – Spitfire… Mk. IX, 312. Sqn, Wing Commander Tomáš Vybíral, D.S.O., D.F.C.

Hi everybody, it is my pleasure to present here my last build. It is really special and means a lot for me. I would like to pay tribute to all RAF pilots , especially Czechoslovaks, who fought in WW2 for our freedom. I always wanted to build a [...]
