GWH's 1/32 Curtis Hawk 81 A2 Flying Tiger

1/48 GWH Ukrainian MiG-29 9-13 #57

You'll have to work at it, but if you want the best Mig-29 in 1/48 scale, the Great Wall Hobby kit is what you want. It does suffer slightly from over-engineering, like miniscule air data probes that are handed, and you will have to use [...]

Great Wall Hobby 1/144 B-52H Stratofortress (L1008)

1/48 GWH Douglas TBD-1 Devastator – Midway

Plenty has been written on these iModeler pages about the history of the Douglas TBD-1 Devastator. Let’s just say that this wasn’t one of Douglas’s finer achievements. All fifteen TBD’s of VT-8 were shot down during the battle of [...]
