Started building plastic models as a child. Focus on aircrafts, converted from 1/32 to 1/144 several years ago. More a collector, than a builder – unfortunately. Working hard to change this. Turned 50 – warranty expired.

Myasishchev M-50 Bounder, Anigrand 1/144

The Myasishchev M-50 Bounder was a Sovjet bomber prototype in the late 50ies, see for more details. The M-50 was Anigrand's second resin kit, released in 2007. Casting quality is fine but adding filler, sanding, filler, sanding, … is a must. I[...]

Patrouille Suisse Aerobatic Team, 6 F-5 Tiger II, F-Toys 1/144

The Yakovlev Yak-36 is one of three bonus kits in Anigrand‘s offering of the Ekranoplan Lun in 1/144. It is a short-run resin kit from Hongkong. I reworked the landing gear, scratch-built the thrust deflector between the front and rear gear, th[...]
