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. As the H-S 12 Y-1000 engine was not ready yet, the weaker Hispano-Suiza 12 … Continue reading In the gallery: Avia B-135 | Planet Models 1:48
Hi, All It's been a while since my last update and indeed, there's some progress in my builds. First of all worth to mention, that the Hayabusa hasn't gotten as much attention lately, as I think she deserves. Lot of other launched builds, including two rather ambitious resin kits, PZL P.7 from Arma Hobby and … Continue reading In the workshop: Ki-43-II Hayabusa | Hasegawa 1:32, part 2

That's how it looked like in October of 1945: This small aircraft has taken more time than I expected - mainly due to late deliveries of some aftermarket products that I considered … Continue reading Kawasaki Ki-100-I Koh Type 5 Fighter | Hasegawa 1:48
Hi All Finally I was able to get back to the Zrinyi. Having ordered a monograph about this assault gun I was hoping to get some data with regard to the interior of the vehicle. The book reached me few days ago... and what a sad surprise - only one photo... Source: Zrinyi II Assault Howitzer (Armour … Continue reading In the workshop: 40/43 M ‘Zrinyi’ II 105 mm | Bronco 1:35 Part 3
Hi All The colours I have chosen for my Arsenal, compared to Lifecolor's and Hataka's authentic colours looked strange... so I decided to repaint it all, to achieve more authentic look. Airbrushed freehand, Lifecolor paints - well diluted, low pressure, nevertheless not easy to use in the airbrush. Not finished yet. Stay tuned, best regards … Continue reading In the workshop: Arsenal VG.36 C1 | Azur 1:48 – Part 7: new camo
Moving forward, have installed the position lights (these will be painted with Vallejo clear paints), the reflector housing (fit is absolutely perfect, no glue required), corrected the weathering on the tail, the upper surfaces of ailerons and horizontal tail have been painted with well diluted IJA Green - it's a remnant of the original camouflage of … Continue reading In the workshop: Kawasaki Ki-61-I Hien | ST 28 Hasegawa 1:32 Part 6 – lights
