An airplane modeller from Hungary over 40, father of a beautiful little girl. 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 🙂

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.[...]

Miles M.2F Hawk Major 1:72 – scratchbuilt

Hi Everyone! This is my scratchbuilt 1:72 Miles M.2 Hawk Major, more specifically an early „F” version. I have a plan - near on the top on my modeling „bucketlist” - to collect all the „Macrobertson” entries (and maybe a huuge diorama  ). This[...]

Caudron’s little eagle: Caudron C.600 Aiglon, 1:72 SBS model

And here it is: the SBS Caudron 600 - finished within a week. I'm a slow modeler so I say wow! When I came home from the Moson Show I was so full with modeling experiences that I thought I need some time before I can sit down on my chair and mak[...]

Caudron C.600 Aiglon 1:72 SBS Model – first look

Hi All, This is my attempt to make a decent Hurricane MKIID from the venerable Hobbycraft kit I bought on evilbay – how appropriate - from Canada :) . I always liked the Hurricane „Fury without the second wing” look (originate3d from Sidney Ca[...]

Have You got enough Comet at home?

Hi Everyone! This is my 1:72 DH.88 Comet collection as part of my "Grand plan" to collect all Macrobertson race participant airplane. Two of them are made from the old Airfix kit (with lot of modifications) and the green one is from the new and[...]

Fiat G.50 Finnish Air Force (Ilmavoimat) 1942 – Secter/Hasegawa 1:48

Hi Everyone! Another "spaghetti" fighter, this time Fiat's attempt to produce something more modern for the "Fighter I" competition than their earlier biplane designs. The "Freccia" (Arrow) in fact was the first serie produced all metal fighte[...]

Reggiane 2000 serie III. 1:48 SMER (ex Artiplast) + scratch

Hi Everyone! I started this kit as an experiment as I always wanted an 1:48 copy af this little fighter, but beside SMER (Artiplast originated in the early '60s) the only kit in this scale is from CA. I saw this week a Classic Airframes Reggiane[...]

Updating an old Iwata HP-B

Hi Everyone! I had only little little time to build anything and this post isn't about finished plastic either. I'm an airbrush guy and fond of airbrushing in general and - as I suppose happens frequently such people - I had and I have several [...]

It's awesome that we have some memes yet so I'm in! This is myworkbench - sufficiently cleaned uf for the photos. Nothing special - a better part of my living room :) On the third picture is a Fly Synthesis Storch I used to learn to fly on UL - [...]
