To start, the FW-200B never saw service with QANTAS. I started this kit a few years ago and it stalled due to paint matching problems for another What-If scheme. A month ago I took it down from the shelf of doom and its holding pattern and strip[...]
A nice kit with a few issues. The instructions want you to join the forward fuselage halves together first, then join the rear halves together and then put the two together as one. Do this and you'll have a whacking great seam to deal with. Glue[...]
This is Revell's Tiger Meet kit and Caracal's decals for the special version of the Typhoon. The kit is a bit of a pig to put together, the intakes are a particular annoyance. But, plenty of test fitting and planning ahead meant it went togethe[...]
I like challenges, so when I spotted this Revell model, I just had to have it to see if I can paint the black stripes on it, so it looked like the real airplane that flew over the "Serengeti" area of Africa. It was used to acquire a record of h[...]
Revell made a very nice 1/144th scale kit of this big 4 engine airplane so I bought two different kits. One kit was made to represent an "USAF-MATS" plane while the other kit represented a commercial airline, namely "TWA."
After opening the box[...]
All raised details have been rescribed, a lot of scratch inside the cockpit because it was completly wrong for the F model of the aircraft, hypodermic needle pitot tube, movable flaps, fuselage drains drilled and opened, scratch built intake cov[...]

This project took a little more time than i expected.
A very known model from 70's, model I am extremely fond of, because it was the first model which my father made for me and introduced me to this hobby. I decided that I will do[...]
So far a fun build..except....for all the darned lines and hoses!!! The attachment points are non existent and the instructions vague. I think I got them where they go.....of course one fell off last night and I have no clue where it came from[...]
This is the 1/72 Revell German Type VIIc kit finished as U-96, the inspiration for the movie. I built it pretty much out of the box with the exception of the swordfish decal which came from a German producer named Peddinghaus. They offer an ex[...]
