FROG 1/72 Me-262A finished as an Avia S-92 Turbina.

FROG, ME-262A, Kit # F248, (1972) On my return back to this hobby, I've been wanting to build a big collection of FROG kits. Since April last year I have built five and restored one. This Me-262 caught my eyes the other day and decided to [...]

The old KP 1/72 Avia CS-199 kit no. 11

This is the older release of KP's Avia CS-199 (1/72) that was released in 1978. Not exactly a kit that falls together and a bit more rougher than my recent KP Arado Ar-96 build. I went on to do some upgrades on fit issues, thinning down on [...]

Heller’s 1/72 Bf-109K converted to an Avia S-199 “Sakeen”

This is Heller's Bf-109K converted to an Avia S-199. An enjoyable build, I took a kit that I was not too thrilled with as a 109K but had some fun making it to something that I like. This was Heller's first attempt (1976, Kit No. 074) to [...]

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 [...]

Avia CS-199

Following my friend Dennis’s lead, I’m working on shrinking the stash with monthly “no-frills” builds: out of the box, no major mods, minimal weathering, etc. My May “NFB” is this KoPro 1/72 Avia CS-199. Not a lot of detail in [...]

Czech Another Off My List

One year when I was a kid my parents bought me Aircraft in Profile vol. 7 as a Christmas present. I always looked through these books with glee and fascination when we went to the bookstore. They were too expensive at the time so I was [...]

The Israeli knife, Avia S-199 “Sakeen”

Welcome everyone! My most recent job was this 1:32 scale Revell Me-109G-6 model and I purchased the conversion kit of the Czech AML (no.32006). The model was sprayed with Gunze paints and the colors were mixed by myself. History: The S-199 [...]

Avia B.534 Series 1 – Eduard Weekend 1:72

A kit that I recently finished for a review in SAMI, the 1:72 Avia B.534 Series 1, from the Eduard Weekend kit. A joy to build and absolutely recommended, even if it didn't come with any resin or PE goodies. Peter PS: I did need a bit [...]

KP Avia B.35 (1/72)

Scott's article inspired me to pull this out of the case, do some repairs on the antenna mast, touch up the panel lines, and do a shoot. I built this four years ago and wasn't terribly disappointed with the results. The decals were good [...]

Avia B. 35

Here’s my 1/72 KP Models Avia B.35. It’s a very basic kit with soft exterior detail and a canopy that makes the generic detail in the cockpit very difficult to see. Nevertheless, I enjoyed making this unusual addition to my [...]
