An airplane modeller from Hungary near to 40. I make models for about 25 years now – I’m fond of esoteric kits, neglected types and the “Golden Age”. I love altering kits and scrachbuilding too. I’m recently in 3D modeling – just started but enjoy it too 🙂

“Mersu” – Finnish Bf-109G-2 1:72, from the very old Hasegawa

Hi All! Here's my save of my very old Hasegawa BF-109. This kit is around for more than 30 (maybe 35???) years. I found it in my stash and as happened I wanted a quick and easy build. I had some very old aftermarked decals too so I thought it wa[...]

PZL P.1/I. and P.1/II. fighter prototypes – SBS 1:72 resin kit double build.

Hi All! I reviewed this kit earlier so it's time for the second step: build it. SBS owner Csaba Bordacs kindly asked me to build one for him and I decided to make a double build as I'd like to have one too for myself. To make things a bit more i[...]

Kit review – looking deep into the box – SBS’ new 1:72 Fiat G.50 first look

Since when first time I saw prototype parts of SBS new Fiat G.50 I’ve known I want one. The Fiat G.50 is not a particularly aesthetic aeroplane nor the best the Italian could drop into the battles of WW2. Despite these facts there are several ki[...]

Caudron C.600 Aiglon – Armée de L’air – SBS 1:72

I think I've fallen in love with this kit - otherwise I find it difficult to explain why I built four of them so far. Yes four and I still did not get bored with it. I reviewed the kit earlier here in iModeler (first look see here: and build re[...]

The “Scooter” – Douglas A-4E Skyhawk, VA-195 “Dambusters” – 1:48

Hi All! This is a result of the excellent 10 part "The Wietnam War" documentary serie ( I've seen recently. Actually this A-4 was around a while just I was too lazy to publish it here and frankly I've been busy recently with work stuffs so model[...]
