This is the model kit I got from Martin, the editor of Imodeler. It’s been mix feelings with this Heller kit. But seeing that it was a very old kit and compromises were taken into account, I now learn my way around such discrepancies in this kit[...]
Fast job with a great kit, I'm happy to post my second entry this month.
Paint and weathering products from Ammo by Mig.
This is Heller's T-28 Fennec, done as a US Navy T-28B, training aircraft. had to remove the pylon mounts under the wings and a scoop on top of the forward fuselage. The decals area mish mash of spares, replicating an A/C from VT-3. Didn't add en[...]
I'm still working on the Pe-2, and have spent the last couple of weeks securing and installing a spray booth, as I'm going to try my hand at airbrushing for the first time (testing Akan paints on the Pe-2, in prep for an F-4E in Greek Aegean Gho[...]

Someone told me some time ago, that a good modeler is the one who can make a bad model look nice. In this case, I think it's true.

I was reluctant in building this, knowing that I wouldn't be able to rig it, my manual dexterity not what it used to be. but It's been in my stash for so long. It's done up as in the overall light grey of 1941, of a craft from Scouting three. I[...]
Another simple kit, but great for training metal finish. This old 1/72 heller kit, given to me by a friend, is a classic Mustang P-51D "miss jackie". A little bit of putty in the joints, and let's go. This time I tried some paints developed here[...]
