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 🙂

Little Fokkers

Hi All! Christmas is coming sooo... I built these little planes (1:72) as christmas presents. This time aesthetics was more important than authencticity but I tried my best to keep tha balance between the two things. The DR.1 is for someone whos[...]

Fiat G.50 1:72 Airfix

Letov S-231 1:72 KP – spanish civil war

Hi everyone! This ismy small scale Letov S-231 built from an old KP. I have some deep memories about KP kits because then practically these manufactirers (KP, SMER, Novo, WEB Plasticart and ZTS) meant modeling to us (behind the old "iron curtain[...]

1:48 Fiat CR.42 (Italeri) Royal Hungarian Air Force 1942

Hi! It's been a while I posted anything. I slowed down a bit but some work done recently among the "half-made stash". I started this kit a year ago parallel with the awful Artiplast CR.32 but couldn't decide what color fits to it best so I set i[...]

Mitsubishi Ki-15 “Kamikaze” from Arii – 1:72

Yes, a kamikaze but this time in a peaceful way :) I found this in my "shelf of doom" and I decided to finish it already after several yers :) As I started it long-long time ago and apparently have some faults I've done this in a "shelf quality"[...]
