1/144 Scale Grumman X-29

I like unusual looking airplanes and Grumman sure made one with this X-29. I wonder where is X-1 to X-28 ? This model was a charm to build, but I do not recall if I did much research. The photo's do not show hardly any flashing on this Drago[...]

The B-17 civil sister: Boeing 307 Stratoliner

In the first post-war decades, the name Boeing was to become synonymous with the rapidly developing cosmos of civil passenger aviation. Epoch-making designs such as the Boeing 707 revolutionised both the market and aviation technology. At the en[...]

X-3 Stiletto

I somehow found this 1/144 scale kit by DRAGON on the web site back in mid 2015. Like any modeler, I just had to have that kit. I never heard of a real jet aircraft that looked like this. I don't recall if the clear model came with the white ve[...]

П-42 (P-42) 1/144 (Trumpeter)

May I present you the P-42 (former T-10-15 Su-27 demonstrator modified to set time to climb records) in 1/144 scale. Base kit is Trumpeter, with some chopping done to align with the original airframe. Anything that was not essential to the very[...]

Here are some of the better of several fun-with-Photoshop pics of various 1/144 kits and repainted Gashopon.

Project Orion nuclear spacecraft

This project started with the Revell 1:144 Saturn 5 rocket kit, however I wanted to do something a bit different with it. Project Orion was a spacecraft concept that the USA seriously considered in the late 1950s and early 60’s. The space race[...]

C-119C Flying Boxcar, 63rd TCS Kimpo Korea, 1952. Roden 1/144. Forgotten War build.

Having had this kit for awhile now, I originally wanted to do some sort of Flight of the Phoenix build, ala Jimmy Stewart, but he flew or crashed a C-82. It worked out well that the kit decals were of the Korean war. i was apprehensive about th[...]

Resurrection of an old and broken model.

This is my project to save an old and broken Airbus A 340 model. Model kit is from Revell in 1:144 scale. After the repair, the model will be part of a new diorama. The diorama will show the wreck of an Airbus A 340 aircraft at the junkyard.

How a giant became a dwarf: C-124 Globemaster II from Roden

The challenge of depicting such a huge aircraft as the Globemaster II on such a small scale as 1:144 is particularly fascinating for me. But the question of whether one could credibly represent the really big in the really small was only one, al[...]
