Grumman-Mercedes X-29

How to use up your old car and bike decals... Buy the cheapest 1/72 kit from your local shop, then put your own stamp on it. This is the NASA X-29 air racer! Based on the legend of the Sauber Mercedes silver arrows. Maybe this could be a future[...]

Supermarine Seafang Mk.32 (Trumpeter 1/48)

First of all, I need to say that this is a "what if" build. There are two reasons for that: Trumpeter and Trumpeter. First reason is that model has a lot of issues with an accuracy, clearly visible if you're comparing with photos. Usually I don'[...]

Future F1

So i had an old F1 and in mind some kind of hovering or antigravity futuristic F1. Wheels are replaced with some gravity defying disks like those on the hoverboard in Back to the Future or the Matrix hover ship.

F1 Super Anti-Gravity Race Car

Here is a What-if model I built some years ago. The inspiration for this model was put into reality after seeing Igor Sobolevsky wonderful 3D art station work called 'Axiom Racing'. His 3d version is just breath taking. The scale is 1/20.

Wasteland ‘Anti-gravity’ bike Extreme Edition, ver. MK4

Yep. I am a sci-fi builder as well. :) This build was inspired from a 3D artist drawing of a wasteland hover bike, I found on the net. The 3D drawing gave me the fuel to build something similar. But as always, I kind of like to tweak things to g[...]
