I cannot resist free paper models. Here are a few dioramas from my micro museum, featuring free, online offerings. The Japanese model is the carrier Akagi's island with deck. The cost of a 1/144 Aichi type 99 "Val" and B5N "Kate" exceed the cost[...]
Hello, dear friends.
It so happened that I got my hands on a set of German firms Reifra. Saying she's revived the line when your favorite GDR-ovsky Plasticart models. Indeed, in the box lay the sprues painfully known. All in the distant 80-e )))[...]
I got this as a gift from my Son, a laser cut model by Metal Earth. Two frames with 40 or so parts (some spares)
It took about 6 hours to build. Parts had to be cut out and bent/folded into shape. Individual parts are held together with small t[...]
Please meet the famous Skipper Riley’s not so well know twin brother Jussi ”The Bag" 69 from Finlandia (The right translation from the original name Jussi Pussi 69 is Jussi The Plastic Bag 69, but "The Bag" is much shorter and much cooler soun[...]
The Doyusha/Entex B727 kit is an old one and fairly accurate other than the nose and the engines. It's hard to find a good B727 kit in any scale; this i think is the closest however this one got a new nose and reshaped engines. The nose section [...]

These Doyusha/Entex kits are probably the best quality large scale airliners you can get, if you can get hold of them. The DC-9 kits is very accurate in every way although quite a few years old now and long out of production does lack in many re[...]
And I do mean little! A friend in Japan sent me these a few years ago. They are Bandai kits in 1/100 scale, and yes, I had to assemble them, though they did come prepainted. I can't even begin to imagine the power of the magnifier the guy who[...]
This time a different thing from the long past. This is 1/100 scratchbuilt model of S/S Kanlıca which was one of the nine sisters passenger steamers served in Istanbul Bosphorus in different lines including Prince ‘s islands since 1961.
My favorite of the three Trumpeter kits, I built. The scale is a little different, being 1/100th, instead of the usual 1/144th. Unlike the other two, this one has an interior, for what it's worth. It makes a decent shelfmate for the two IIy[...]
