My penultimate build for 2020 is the new tool Airfix A-4 Skyhawk. It’s not my best work but, it’s a decent 3 footer. The panel lines on top of the fuselage were very soft so I rescribed them. I tried shading panel lines with water colors which w[...]
I posted pictures of this model before, but since I've added the display stand, so I figured that now it's really finished I'd post some pics of the final result. The Airfix kit was an easy build and a cheap one. I spent more on paints [...]

Scratchbuilt the characteristic turbine exhaust extension with 15mm styrene rod and miliput for the fairing and moulding. Borrowed and extr[...]
Back in 2016/17 my father built a fully loaded Israeli hotrod too as adversary for the Iraqi Su-7.
Like with the Fitter, also took some new pics to pay tribute to my dad´s model.

18 years ago I bought a model on the E Day and the wheel bay and interior from Aires. I started to build a model but soon my strength came and the model wandered for a long time in the cabinet. This autumn I managed to finish. I made dirt on the[...]
This is Hasegawa's Blue Angel boxing of the TA-4J Skyhawk, the kit gives you a choice of doing a single seat or the trainer version. I chose to do the dual seat version in the markings of VC-2 [ Fleet Composite Squadron] stationed at NAS Oceana [...]
As the title says, last month I spent with wonderful Hasegawa kit. Model is pretty much out of the box, except I added pilot figure from old "decomissioned" Revell's F-8 Crusader. The kit itself was fun and easy to assemble, only con is lack of [...]
