I get inspired by the planes I fly in flight simulators. Go figure. I've flown the LaGG-3 in IL2-GB and hated every minute of it. Once I stepped up to the La-5 I had something approaching the same revelatory moment pilots had when they traded i[...]
Pain-free. Go slow, enjoy the build and mind the gunsight glass so the carpet monster doesn't eat it.
The blue decal for the spinner is poorly sized and if you use it, the decal won't conform no matter what decal setting solution you use. I ju[...]
Mittens are all the rage on the internet right now, so I'll get in on the action and post this, the 1/48 Zvezda Yak-130 "Mitten"
Originally a joint project between Aermacchi (now Leonardo) and Yakovlev for a subsonic jet trainer with secondary[...]
That Tempest II in July is nice. Hopefully the S.199 will be in 1/48 first. 4-cannon Fw-190A-5 is also interesting, as is the Spitfire V in the fall. I like the Fw-190F-8.
Doing 109Es with the Special Hobby kit is great - that is absolutely t[...]
In my opinion, this is a very good Zvezda kit. It is built from a box and does not contain an upgrade.
His painting was inspired by the scheme seen in the Panda set.
I hope you like it.

In 1943 the Spanish Airforce received about a dozen F-4s which were stationed partly in France and Spain. Not much info a[...]
This model kit is titled 'Medieval Life Boat' by ZVEZDA.
On reading up about it I found it was the type of boat used to transport men and stores to and from the ships used by the Crusaders. If required it could also be used as a ships lifeboat.
My latest completion is Zvezda's 1/144th scale Boeing 777-300ER finished in Emirates colours courtesy of 26-Decals.
This kit is an absolute joy to build, with no filler required. Levels of detail are great and a huge step up ov[...]
