Roden 1/72 Felixstowe F.2A

After 20 years since it appeared, Roden's excellent Felixstowe hold its ground. The early and late F.2A are depicted here. I used AIMS decals for the red ship. Rigging is elaborate, but thanks to stiff coper wires from coated cables, the [...]

Valeriy Grygorenko's 1/48 Gladiator Mk.I

Roden 1/72 Gotha G.V.

1/48 Condor Legion He-51B Imperial German Air Service/Luftwaffe Group Build.

This is the fairly recent Roden kit. All in all, not a bad kit. It’s engineered very nicely and has good cockpit detailing. It’s best feature is that the landing gear struts are molded to the fuselage halves. This guarantees [...]
