Roden 1/48 T-28B

History: The North American T-28 began life in 1946 as the XSN2J-1, which was designed to replace the SNJ trainer for the Navy. Looking like a tailwheel T-28, the design was not accepted by the Navy, but in 1947 the Air Force issued a specific[...]

The last of its kind: Arado Ar 68, the Luftwaffe’s final biplane fighter aircraft

By the mid-1930s it was clear to the experts that in the medium term the future of military aviation would be found in the development of monoplanes. In many areas, the approach of the metal-covered and aerodynamically slim monoplane had already[...]

Arado Ar 68 E (Roden 1/48)

And this is my first biplane model kit so far. The main purpose of this build was rigging. Despite that fact, that this kit was released in 2019, it's a standard Roden kit, but now also overpriced in addition to other issues. Decals are no good[...]

1/48 Roden OV-1C Mohawk

This is the 1/48 Roden OV-1C Mohawk. I used Quickboost resin propellers, scoops, and exhaust. For the small details Eduard photo etch sets for the cockpit and exterior. This is a difficult kit in terms of fit especially the canopy. Even the deca[...]

Here are a few pictures of my Roden OV-1D Mohawk. This kit was a bit of a challenge but not super difficult. Assembly simply required a lot of patience. The SLAR boom and the cockpit were both aftermarket resin from Cobra Company. Those acce[...]

C-119C Flying Boxcar, 63rd TCS Kimpo Korea, 1952. Roden 1/144. Forgotten War build.

Having had this kit for awhile now, I originally wanted to do some sort of Flight of the Phoenix build, ala Jimmy Stewart, but he flew or crashed a C-82. It worked out well that the kit decals were of the Korean war. i was apprehensive about th[...]

How a giant became a dwarf: C-124 Globemaster II from Roden

The challenge of depicting such a huge aircraft as the Globemaster II on such a small scale as 1:144 is particularly fascinating for me. But the question of whether one could credibly represent the really big in the really small was only one, al[...]
