Hi everyone! This is my Royal Hellenic Air Force C-47, s/n 92630, named "ΑΡΗΣ"-"MARS", built through the "Korea : The Forgotten War……….." Group Build. It was at this scheme that "ΑΡΗΣ" took part in the Forgotten War with the Greek Korean Deta[...]

It was going to be literally out of the box

A while back on another site someone started a thread about building a kit without painting any of it. Just a pure build to see how well you could do without hiding flaws with paint. Most everyone said “no way.” But I kinda liked the idea and so[...]

Bob Typhoon! Nice to meet you.

When I first saw a photo of the Eurofighter FGR4 in the 75th anniversary Battle of Britain colors, I immediately put having a model of that plane on my want list. Eventually I picked up a Revell 1/72 Eurofighter and found the Caracal Models deca[...]

Pavla 1/72 Fieseler Fi-167

I've always love the look of this aircraft, and when I saw a Pavla kit a few years ago I snatched it up. There were only about a dozen or so Fi-167's built. This was the first Pavla kit I've built (though I've got several more in the stash), an[...]
