A6M5c Zero, Academy 1/72

I found myself inspired by the many wonderful aircraft found on iModeler...so I dug this Zero from the stash thinking it would be a relative short build compared to some of my armor projects. I underestimated the "short build" part, low parts c[...]

P-47D, Academy 1/48, 313th FS/ 50th FG, Philip Savides

Here is my last built. The Academy kit was a surprise for me. Very nice and easy kit. I used LM decals. As usual every comment is welcome! Link with the details for Philip Savides:

My next project and a request for help !…

Hi fellow iModelers , I'm hoping this will be my next project but I think I will need some help from a kind hearted fellow iModeler or two , as a lifelong fan of Motorhead I was excited to see Airfix brought out this little beauty and put one o[...]

Academy MiG-21MF Fishbed, 1/48 scale

Hello iModeler! This is one of three kits I managed to finish last year. I used a CMK resin cockpit and wheel wells, and finished it in generic USSR colors using the kit decals and Akan paints. Not a bad kit for the price but I think I would c[...]

Academy 1/72 OV-10D Bronco – Desert Storm

This is my entry for the Desert Storm group build. I added details to the cockpit - some bulkhead at the rear deck, boxes, cables, ejection handles, etc, knowing it would be pretty visible under that expansive canopy. Nothing extra to the exter[...]

Arab-Israeli War…1/48 Avia S-199 Israeli Airforce

This is one of my dad´s oldest still existing models, built 10-15 years ago. The old Hobbycraft/Academy kit, pimped with some Hasegawa parts and PE seatbelts. Should Eduard really release their announced S-199, most probably gonna build a new on[...]

1/48 Hispano Ha-1112 Buchon, Ejército del Aire

Built in 2015. Academy boxing of the Hobbycraft kit, mostly built oob. Replaced the crappy kit canopy with a Hasegawa one, for that some putty and re-scribing was neccessary in the fuselage area behind the canopy. Used a piece of sponge for the [...]
