Scale modeller, software developer, jazz and metal fan from Ukraine. Prefer aviation kits in 1/72 and 1/48 scale.

F6F-3 Hellcat (Eduard 1/48)

This is recently re-issued 8227 ProfiPack with a well-known Hellcat in this scale. I wanted to try new Eduard aftermarket offerings, so I've added 3D printed wheel bays and bronze legs. It's nice additions to the quite old kit, especially [...]

De Havilland Vampire F.3 (Airfix 1/48)

There's something very attractive about early jets - you can see some remnants of the piston era and the new approaches, so it's always something in between. My favourite is the Supermarine Attacker - a jet fighter with a tail wheel. [...]

Miles Magister (MikroMir 1/32)

Malies Magister was a trainer and acrobatics aircraft designed in the 1930s. I like this classic look of it, and it's visible from the start, that the aircraft is from the Golden Era of aviation. For me, Miles Magister was one of the first [...]

Harrier G.R.1A (AMMO/Kinetic 1/48)

Harrier is a special subject to me, because FROG's (produced by NOVO actually) G.R. Mk.I was one of my first plastic kits, if not the very first one. Modern aviation is not my usual subject, but I've made an exclusion for this build. This [...]

Kayaba Ka-Go Ka-1 (FineMolds 1/72)

This was a kit I've bought recently for no reason in my local hobby shop. Just an interesting unusual prototype, and it was looking as an easy kit to build. And so it was. It took me just four days to complete it. Nice OOB (well, not [...]

P-39Q "Brown Eyes" (Arma Hobby 1/72)

This is the latest model kit issued by Army Hobby in 1/72 scale (most of their kits are in this scale, but I'm still waiting for the promised Hurricane in 1/48). I built some of their first plastic kits (PZL P.7), and a later Wildcat along [...]

Yak-9T (ICM 1/32)

After 10 months of being not able to finish anything, this new tool Yak-9T (T - tank) has finally brought me back. Thank you, ICM 🙂 The kit fits quite well. The only inconvenient thing was the wing root fairing. And the windscreen [...]

Chipmunk T.10 (Airfix 1/48)

My recently finished Chipmunk T.10 in 1/48 scale. This is a new tooled 2021 AIrfix kit. Completely OOB except masks and seat belts by FineMolds.

Spitfire Mk.Vb (Eduard 1/48)

New Spitfire Mk.Vb by Eduard in 1/48 scale. I was waiting for the trop version since I saw the sprue of Mk.I last year. And here it is, the first on out of the Eagle's Call dual combo box. Kit is no surprise – a "standard" [...]

Bf 109E-4 (SpecialHobby 1/72)

Bf 109E-4, new kit by Special Hobby in 1/72 scale. Kit goes really well, the fit is good, but check the canopy/fuselage parts before gluing. Detail level is impressive. The only aftermarket I've used was metal barrels (Master) and exhausts [...]
