Although the Airspeed Horsa is a well-known aircraft and can also claim to be one of the icons of the Allied landings in Normandy on 6 June 1944, I did not realise until this project what a gripping story(s) and most remarkable technology lie be[...]
Here’s the Italeri Tiger I E with a ton of extras. I used leftover brass, bits of plastic and wire and unused parts from various other kits. The markings are of Otto Carius’s “213” of pz.abt 503 from Bison Decals.
My first aircraft of 2021 and the first modern one since 2013!
Armée de l'Air, Escadron de Chasse 2/5 Île-de-France,
Operation Daguet, Al Asha AB, Saudi Arabia, 1990-1991

Hello again, this is my last model of 2020, A-1H Skyraider one of my favorites, this version of Italeri 1/48 i think is a reboxing but good quality, I chose de USAF version (1969-Da Nang), more challenging scheme for my skill.
Very happy whit t[...]
Taking advantage of the extra down time from the Covid social distancing lockdown I tried to reduce my stash by finishing some simple no-frills OOB builds (**) in addition to ongoing work on regular long term projects. No frills means no afterm[...]
My latest review on the Italeri smallest helicopter model which is the Bell-47 AH-1/AB-47 model kit which was released few years back.
