I decided to raid the stash one day, and came up with this old Airfix kit. While it shows it's age, it's still a fun build, and looks ok when finished. I opted for a small "base" rather than mess with weight in that tiny nose. I had two Airf[...]
With the proletarian greetings, comrades!)))
Another airplane with red stars - DH.9 Aviation First Cavalry Budennogo. The assembly of the box, the impressions of the model most good. Difficulties not arisen even in the assembly biplane box.
I think this 1/48 effort by Monogram was one of their best. It's always been a fun build, no matter how many I've done. I believe I picked this up as a $1.00 bag kit, and thought I'd play with it. While the paint scheme is purely fictional,[...]

Who doesn't like seaplanes and amphibs? Academy makes a nice looking series of PBY's. I had seen the weathered "Black Cat" version, and just had to give it a try. This is one I really feel looks better in person, than the photos. (Too much [...]
Having just got back into this hobby and seeing the posts, I thought I would add my little Tiffie.
I know that it is not that brilliant and that the standards here are very good but to read and learn from the comments will help me no end.
Due to space limitations and ease of download, Scott doesn't always publish all photos I provide for a review. Since people have been interested in this kit, I am putting up all the photos I sent him here for your viewing. I think these will a[...]
