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
Hi All, To get some "rest" from all the Hiens I made and I'm currently building (there are two more to be honest, Ki-100 from Hasegawa and Ki-61-II Kai from RS Models, both in 1:48th scale) I decided to start something a bit different and more challenging: Azur's VG.36. The kit entered the production in … Continue reading In the workshop: Arsenal VG.36 C1 | Azur 1:48
Hi All, Another project started recently: Bronco's 40/43 M 'Zrinyi' II 105 mm. What a wonderful kit! Excellent detail and fit (so far, I haven't encountered any of the fit issues described by some other modelers), and it is a really unique subject, not often seen in the Net - on top of that, a really good looking beast. … Continue reading In the workshop: 40/43 M ‘Zrinyi’ II 105 mm | Bronco 1:35

Now, as you can see, it is very close to the final. Just a few things missing or to be corrected. … Continue reading N.A. P-51 D Mustang, 1:48 Tamiya, pt. 7
Hi All, Going slowly forward - now my Mustang is looking a bit more like an aircraft. After glueing the fuselage and wings together, it is clear that some additional filing and sanding will be required - I think that the resin inserts have infuenced the fit of the parts a bit. Stay tuned Hubert
Hi All, One of my recent finished projects, P-61A-10-NO Black Widow, by Hobby Boss, 1:48. "Double Trouble", 42-5565, July 1944, 422 NFS, Pilot Lt. R. Bolinder, Radar Operator F/O R. Graham, C.C. E.W. McLain. Four kills achieved by the crew. Plane written off after a landing accident in Belgium (Belgia) in April 1945.
Hi All, Small progress only since last entry. I can hardly find a free time for modelling, being lately very busy. I'm not quite sure, if it is correct to paint the seat's cushion brown, as it was not possible to find any color photo of the real aircraft, not a restored one, showing it … Continue reading N.A.
