1/48 Italeri Cessna 172 Skyhawk

One of my shelves is reserved for small civilian airplanes, I always wanted collection of colorful Cessnas, Pipers, Beechcrafts etc. next to my usual collection of warbirds. This one's my first (civilian). I did not follow instructions, [...]

Thank you for all your comments on my first article!

Honestly, I was more than surprised about all your reactions; can't believe it. Thank you so much. David has asked me what my next project would be. So, I chose this one for my second article: WIP! From the pictures you see that I am [...]
