I really enjoy building models of commercial aircraft, and couldn't resist when I stumbled upon this Aircraft in Miniature (ex Transport Wings) vacform of the iconic Boeing 747... in yes... you read correctly... 1/72nd scale.
The kit I chose wa[...]
Hi all, for the BoF/BoB.
1/48 CA Boultan Paul Defiant. I loved building this kit. Lots of fun even with the extra workload of a limited run kit. It went together very nicely.
Not many pics sorry. But hope you like anyway.
As soon as I saw the advance notice I put in my order for this magnificent & much neglected model. It seems that most kit manufactures have forgotten about the 1950's & '60's so a Cougar was great news!
It arrived (of course) just af[...]
OK here is the story. I was in Pegasus hobby shop. A mecca here in Southern California. And I was looking at all the best of the best models available in the world and I came upon this,(second photo). It was the most gosh ugly morphed out worst [...]

This is Revell's Arizona that I built for the second time. It went together well and before I started I wanted it to be a waterline model. I cut off the bottom half of the hull and I have a hope someday that I will put in a water setting. The ma[...]

Best regards, Vlad.

I built this little kit in preparation for a Wingnut Wings kit. It went together fairly well. It had some photo-etch parts (seat belts, wheel covers, guns) and they were nice. After putting the cockpit in I tried to cover-up the seam down the mi[...]
This is Tamiya's P-51 and it was a joy to build. The kit came in clean gray molding and the second I got it I sat right down to it. I painted everything to what Tamiya told me to and then I spent three or four days super detailing the cockpit of[...]
