Built about 2006, the very nice updated Eduard Fokker E.V "Parasol". We now know the lozenge isn't the right color (thank you very much WNW for your outstanding research!), but it still looks very nice. Amazing how aircraft development went fr[...]
This is Eduard's crisp little Nieuport 17 with a some extra detailing. The kit cockpit is fairly simple, with a flat floor with a step for the seat and molded in heel boards. It looks fine once it's all closed up. However, in an attempt to val[...]
In the box, this kit provides all of the classic Roden pebbly, wobbly plastic, fiddly fits, obscure attachment points, and horrific decals at no extra cost to the modeler. The scariest part was shaving down the tabs for the cabane and landing g[...]
This was done about 2004. The Falcon 1/48 F.R. XVIII vacuform. Still the most accurate Spitfire XIV/XVIII in 1/48. I used a resin cockpit (something I had, nobody can really tell the detail differences between Spitfire cockpits in 1/48 scale [...]
Not a very good year modelling-wise with only three kits finished. The fact that two of them are very small doesn't make it more impressive either!
So here we go, two MiG-21s from Eduard in 1/144 scale. One Slovak one in the "Milka"-scheme whil[...]
This short-tailed Bf109G-14 was the benificiary of a tail swap from their Hartmann 109G-6 kit. It was built to represent the mount of Lt. Heinz Ewald of 7./JG-52 while based at Veszprem, Hungary in the Fall of 1944. Ewald survived the war with[...]
This is the wonderful Tamiya kit built out of the box with only a set of Eduard pre-painted seatbelts added along with an aftermarket decal sheet used to mark this one as 'My Gal Sal' from 378th FS/362nd FG based in England during 1943.
latest build, my 1/48 Tamiya F-16
Tried my first bleaching affect on the top of the aircraft to give it a weathered look and then put a wash on,
Let me know what you think !
This one took a while-both due to the quirkiness of the build and my indecision as to a paint scheme. Most of the kit decals were suspect so I ended up hitting the spares box. As a result, this example may have been active in the Baltic or North[...]
This is the Special Hobby 1/32 kit of the Nieuport 11 "Bebe", done OOB. It's the only model out there in this scale of the airplane, and looks very nice sitting next to any WNW kit.
