Eduard 1/48 F6F-5 Hellcat

An excellent model for construction, a rare Eduard model that you can say "shake and bake". I even built 1/72 Eduard Hellcat, and in this scale is also a great plastic.

Academy F-14A 1:48 (1988 tool)

I must say I was always intimidated by builds of modern aircraft but this build changed my mind. The kit is from 1988 and does not stand up to the new Tamiya kit but I managed to have a lot of fun with it. Lots of fit issues and old decals but I[...]
