1/32nd scale Short Sunderland Mk II – ID Models vacform WIP

Dynavector 1/48 XA2D-1 Skyshark

Why I am not standing in line for the new kit, good as I hear it is. History By the end of the Second World War, with operational analysis demonstrating that Navy fighter squadrons had protected the carrier-based strike aircraft so well [...]

Rareplane 1/72 Republic P-43 Lancer

Rareplane's P-43 Lancer, my first vac-form build. This is an old vac-form kit released at 1972, single sheet with decent details. It was not a horrible build but did have some minor issues to deal with. My first plan was to use a resin [...]

1/48th Boeing B-52H Stratofortress - update

Evening all, It's been a while since I posted and update on this project. Since last time I've scratch-built the main flap structure. More often than not B-52s are parked flaps-down so I thought I'd do the same with mine. These were made [...]

Curtiss Soc Seagull – vac u form project – 1/48 Wings

I love U.S. Navy planes and specially those of the yellow wings era, but the Curtiss Soc Seagull is amazing. Unfortunately biplanes of this period are very difficult to be found in 1/48 scale. The Curtiss Seagull is, from my view point, [...]
