Heller’s 1/72 PZL P.11c

This is a nice model kit, Heller released this at 1977. It is a small model with fine raised lines and pretty nice fine details all over. I built up the cockpit area a little by adding a cage and small items on the side walls. The wing struts an[...]

Vintage Lindberg 1/72 F6F Hellcat (with just a few tweaks)

One thing about the Lindberg kits I have built is that the parts fit properly. All I did to this kit is open up the closed engine face and add a spare engine, some guns and an antenna. Everything else is out of the box. I did use the decals fr[...]

Project Spike ASAT F-106A, 1/72 Hasagwa.

This F-106A was used on Project Spike which was an ASAT program of the early '70s. Being fired from an F-106, the missile would release a terminal homing vehicle guided by solid rocket motors on a trajectory to intercept a selected satellite. St[...]

5 – Grumman F8F-1 Bearcat 1/72 from Sword

I went into this build just wanting to use this kit as a practice but fell in love with this plane, it was designed to be a massive upgrade to the flying forces in WW2 but got there 2 weeks to late. Because of the lack of it's service I kept th[...]

Dora Wings 1/72 Westland Lysander Mk III (SD)

Hi there, This one was sitting in the stash for quite some time and I decided to go for it despite it probably being a bit more than my skill level could cope with. A challenging kit that repays careful preparation and patience along with sand[...]
