This is my recent project. A very nice kit, without any issues, except for the clear parts for the Maverick missiles; they just don't fit into their places.
Used Eduard canopy masks and PE for the cockpit, and metal pitot tube/cannon. Only thin[...]
I want to show the first models I built after returning to the hobby in 1988. I was 35 years old and hadn't built a model plane since I was around 10. I wanted to compare the aircraft of that era and thought building 1/48 scale versions w[...]

This is my last build for the year, the Hobby Boss 1/48 A-10 Thunderbolt II. Or at least that's what it says on the box, the aeroplane goes by a few different nicknames I be[...]
I have just finished another kit for my friend. It is A-10 double seater in special what-if camouflage. The snake head in front is done by masking, it is not a decal.
