The Friedrichshafen FF33 was a German single-engine, two-seater reconnaissance biplane with twin floats. It was designed by Flugzeugbau Friedrichshafen in 1914 for the Marine-Fliegerabteilung aviation forces of the Kaiserliche Marine.
Hello! I represent a fresh model, still the paint has not dried up)) - Ansaldo Balilla from Karaya. The model is not bad, but it's going to be a little more complicated than, for example, their Martinside. Mainly because of the braces. The opti[...]
The Ansaldo A.1, nicknamed "Balilla", after the Genoan folk-hero, was Italy's only fighter aircraft to be both domestically designed and produced during the First World War.
The A.1 resulted from continued efforts by the Ansaldo[...]
A bit further along now. If you're wondering why these Progress reports aren't set up in WiP, there are only around 50 parts to this resin kit, and so I thought it unlikely to merit a full-blown WiP thread. This present post is in fact the sec[...]
Another 1/48 resin kit from Karaya. It's the little Italian scout A.1 Ballila, which was developed from the ruins of Ansaldo's SVA project. I'll add a little more detail in a later post, but thought I'd show a few sections now. You'd be forgiv[...]
The DFW C.V two-seater reconnaissance aircraft has been referred to by historians as one of the truly great aircraft of the First World War.

A little more work, prior to setting turnbuckle anchors. As you can see in the main photo, they're pretty small.
I mentioned previously that I was trying out the AK Interactive set of three CDL paints. I sprayed the undersides of the wings, e[...]
Progress on Karaya's diminutive resin model of the DFW C.V- 1/48 (quarter scale) is pretty small for Great War subjects, although the two-crew versions make for a nice-size model.
The cover image shows the resin wheels with the lovely P.E. sp[...]
I would like to present one of my works recently. Even the finish was not up to my expectations due to the color is a little bit off, the chipping is incorrect at some panel but overall I'm happy with it. The kit is the La-5 from Zvez[...]
Model fresh catch-ended the other day. Not a good resin but the model performed very well. The assembly passed without incident, the only thing - I had to cut the front wing. Markings painted through stencils.
And a little bit of history - the[...]
