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 🙂

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

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

Christmas came a little earlier this year (review on Modelcollect’s new tool 1:72 B-2 Spirit)

Hi Mates, I could not miss this commonplace title but this "little" kit just arrived from the manufacturer. I made a pre order (in 2016) practically when they just formed as a future manufacturer and annunced their plan to make a new-tool B-2. T[...]

Tips and tricks: how to work with acetate canopies and windscreens – part one: glue

Many people asked me how even possible to glue clear parts especially the vacformed or just plain acetate ones onto a resin (or any other type of) kit. I see the difficulty as a resin kit can be glued only with some kind of resin based glue i.e.[...]
