Felina! (recognize that, Breaking Bad people?) Best finale ever from the best show ever. Anyway this is my finale, less spectacular for sure, but the Shiden-Kai is done.
Hasegawa makes it so easy to do a nice looking model. Only screw-ups here w[...]
This build is the 1/48 Eduard F6F-5N Hellcat Nightfighter. This is Eduard’s “Weekend Edition” so it comes with some resin detail accessories like radar pod, gun barrels, exhaust pipes, and under wing antenna. I also added Eduard’s photo etch coc[...]
Interested to see what could be done with this kit without spending a fortune. Actually very impressed! PRU model with the fuselage camera in the wrong place (sorry)! Eduard wheels (for Tamiya) were the only extras. When you open the box you can[...]

JAAF Green is Tamiya which performed brilliantly, most other pai[...]
Very old and tiny kit of the minesweeper "Mercure" from the french brand Heller. I chose the ship to experiment a diorama using Andrea water and Pébéo Studio Acrylic gloss gel. I added El Arsenal photo-etched railings and Oerlikon canon, and Edu[...]
This project began shortly after i took GYPSY 203, a VF-32 Tomcat built for John Lawler, to the IPMS Nationals in Phoenix. Having enjoyed building the Tamiya Tomcat, i wanted to build one for myself.
