F-84F Thunderstreak – Italeri/Kinetic 1/48

This kit was one of those rare kits that I bought on a whim, and successfully completed without ever "putting it up". It has been the focus of my efforts for the last 6 weeks or so, off and on. The kit itself is an Italeri boxing [...]

Cold War Gone Hot – The Venlo Counter Strike

I decided to have a change of pace just lately. This is the Mini-art Dutch house. I've always been a great fan of some of the "Cold War gone hot" books such as Gen. "Shan" Hacketts "Third World War" and [...]

Un mirage atomique! Dassault Mirage IVA

France, reborn after the Second World War, was still striving to become a nuclear power in the late 1940s against the backdrop of the Cold War. As part of the Western world, France pursued the expansion of its armed forces in view of a [...]

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 [...]

F-117 1/144 [Dragon+2x Shelf Oddity]

П-42 (P-42 “Streak Flanker”) (1/144 Trumpeter)

May I present you the P-42 (former T-10-15 Su-27 demonstrator modified to set time to climb records) in 1/144 scale. Base kit is Trumpeter, with some chopping done to align with the original airframe. Anything that was not essential to the [...]

1/72 IDEA F-89D Scorpion

This is a boxing by a company named IDEA, but it is essentially the Academy kit, I think, as I do not have the academy kit, but the sprues are the same as photos on the net of the Academy kit. Quite good fitting parts, but I decided to [...]

How a giant became a dwarf: C-124 Globemaster II from Roden

The challenge of depicting such a huge aircraft as the Globemaster II on such a small scale as 1:144 is particularly fascinating for me. But the question of whether one could credibly represent the really big in the really small was only [...]

Sepecat Jaguar GR1 A 1/48 Airfix

The SEPECAT Jaguar is a Anglo-French jet attack aircraft originally used by the British Royal Air Force and the French Air Force in the close air support and nuclear strike role. It is still in service in upgraded form with the Indian Air [...]
