Hi, All How many years this kit is waiting to be finished, hard to tell... three, four? Something around that, but now I can see the light. Some oils & pigments can make miracles to this otherwise boring vehicle model 😉 Hope you like it! Best regards Hubert
Hi All, Haven't posted a lot lately, as usual - too much work, not enough time for hobby and posting. However, that doesn't mean that nothing is actually happening. At last, had some time to instal the Attacker's undercarriage. The fit of main gear legs to the undercarriage bay resin part was just perfect, as well … Continue reading In the workshop: Supermarine Attacker FB.2 | Trumpeter 1:48 – part four, almost there, and the Spiteful!
In 1936 AVIA's construction team have begun work on a modern low-cost fighter that was to replace the then aging AVIA B-534. The first prototype of the new AVIA B-35, of beautiful and clean lines, was flown on September 28, 1938.

Any attempts to correct their placement right after their application are almost impossible. The film the decals are printed on is … Continue reading In the workshop: Supermarine Attacker FB.2 | Trumpeter 1:48 – part three
Hi All The next victim will be the Gee Bee R1 from Williams Bros. An oldie, but definitely worth attention and effort. Have bought this kit recently and somehow could not resist to start it - despite there are so many other attractive objects in my stash. OK, so what is inside? One clear sprue … Continue reading In the workshop: Gee Bee R1 | Williams Bros. 1:32
Hi, All In January 2017 I decided to restart old Revell's Spitfire Mk. 22/24 kit, which I started around a year earlier, but gave up temporarily due to its poor fit and lack of detail - and the most important, lack of idea, how to paint it. This time however it was most of all … Continue reading In the gallery: Supermarine Spitfire F Mk.22 | Revell/Matchbox 1:32
