Another obscure kit from the cheap seats. I found this in a hobby shop which sells older kits.
Lodela's/Revell 1/72 Nakajima Rufe, the kit date backs to the late seventies and it's supposed to be Frog molds. A very basic kit, more basic then t[...]
This was a project that started as "I'll just do a little clean-up on this old kit," and turned into a major project. I'm only posting the finished project pics here, but for details, especially the interior construction, you can see the WIP t[...]
This is the ancient Novo , Frog kit that I picked up for a fiver at a club day last year. I bought it for the RAF centenary G.B. and that is where it first appeared but I always thought it needed to be presented in a more interesting way, the lo[...]

I guess all the "Ds" were going to Europe then, I used superscale decal sheet 72-364 because it[...]
I hadn't posted in a while, so thought I would post up the first "double build" I did - from a few years ago. These were about 5-6 years ago - before I started weathering and post shading, etc. Only real detailing was the exhaust and gun blast s[...]
Here are a couple of 1/72 Gloster Javelin models that I made quite a few years ago. The Javelin has always appealed to me with its unusual shape of delta wing on a broad fuselage, and a second, smaller delta at the top of the fin. A very large a[...]
