Revell 1/32 Arado Ar 196A 3

Revell's Ar 196A is a great kit. It is highly detailed, a solid build for the most part without fiddly issues. There are only two disadvantages. The first is the lack of a beaching trolley. The chunky stand provided takes the glamor off [...]

The First and the Last: Junkers F.13 & Mistel 5

The eerie hissing sound of the three jet engines shattered the night's peace. No time to waste, every pound of fuel was precious. Taxiing the clunky looking but really solid Mistel, many controversial thoughts kept on crossing his mind. [...]

Arado Ar 196A-3, battleship Tirpitz, 1943 (1:32, Revell)

KP (ex-Kopro-MasterCraft) 1/72 Arado Ar96B

This is KP’s Arado Ar96B but boxed by Kopro-MasterCraft. The original KP kit was released in 1980. I have had KP kits in my stash years ago but never built them and got rid of them. But recently I picked up a few of them after seeing a [...]
