Here is my 2nd article.
RF-84F Thunderflash, German Air Force, 1959.
A lovely aircraft for me.
The kit is the old Heller with raised lines. A nice kit, but the decals are a little fat.
The cameras are handmade.
Of course every com[...]
Presenting the Sa315B of the Indian Army. The kit is from Heller and is of the SA313 in 1/48 size. This was modified into the Sa315B.
The Model is 100% Brush Painted using locally available acrylics.
Stretched Sprue was mad[...]
This is the latest edition to my small-but-growing tractor family, Heller's excellent "Little Gray Fergie". This little tractor was an enjoyable kit, lots of detail and no problems in assembly. You can position the front wheels and the hydraul[...]

Being usually an aircraft builder and doing from time to time some armour, this is my dad´s first car model since 30 years.
The last one he built was this same Heller kit, now he gave it a [...]
My fifth monthly ‘staying-at-home, no-frills, stash-reduction, build and paint’ project–July edition. (With the off-and-partially on again shutdown I wonder how long to keep this going.)
This is a vintage-1979-Heller kit of an interesting subje[...]

This kit has been in my stash for over 40 years. The box art on this inexpensive kit from the late 70s caught my eye. A Spitfire in bare metal finish is not that common. I was lucky to see the “Silver Spit[...]
Very old and tiny kit of the minesweeper "Mercure" from the french brand Heller. I chose the ship to experiment a diorama using Andrea water and Pébéo Studio Acrylic gloss gel. I added El Arsenal photo-etched railings and Oerlikon canon, and Edu[...]
I have had this kit in my stash since the late 70s! I think it cost about $4.00 Canadian back in the day. Heller’s 1/72 scale aircraft kits were generally really good for that era, although the decals were a bit on the crude side. Raised panel l[...]
I have been away from scale modeling since 1990's - I can't remember the last kit I actually built. Getting close to retirement, I figured I better make sure I still have the patience to get back into it.
This wasn't my first kit getting back to[...]
