I thought I was done with Fw 190’s for a bit after I had finished my recent build of “Priller’s Würger” for this year’s EagleQuest. At that event I was discussing with a friend, Jerry Hendrickson, the “fun” I had closing up the engine cowling of[...]
This one has been waiting for the last few details for some time, and was actually started in October 2018! I really liked the colors of “white 1” from JG300, but sadly my airbrush skills were not up to the thin lines needed for that one. And [...]
Hello guys, another post whit a eduard kit built out of the box.

Good old Dragon.... first A/C model I ever had to use 60 grit sandpaper on! Some of it did go together without too much fuss, but I did a good bit of filling and re-scribing to enhance and add details. Eduard P-E in the 'pit of course and True[...]
These are my first two kits I built 3 years ago. Nothing special really, rookie work, no aftermarket parts, no preshading, no postashading, bad weathering and decal silvering, but both planes are in nice and unusual color scheme so I thought I c[...]
