My first IAR 80
IAR 80 was an iconic Romanian build fighter plane from the late ’30s. The model I made comes from a HobbyBoss kit, in 1:48 scale – recommended as one of the best in matter of details and accuracy for this model.
Restoration of an old MiG-29 kit
Today we will gonna look at my restoration project, an old kit of MiG-29 model 1:72 (Italeri made, I think). This is how it looked when it arrived to me: First steps where to cleanup the surface with IPA. The clear parts (canopy) was sanded then polished with Tamiya products. I have rejoint some week […]
Corsair F4U-F 1:72 scale – Full build
This Revell kit was sitting in my stash for a while and it was time to build it. The plastic sprues are typical Revell, not extraordinary, but with enough details that can be enjoyable after all.
Italeri MiG-21 in 1/72 scale
This time a better kit made it to my “workbench” (better than the romanian Hobby Park MiG-21). The plane was the most produced figher jet of all times, in his peak production period was cheaper to make than the BMP-1 Video and pictures bellow

Panzer IV ausf. D – step by step
Model kit of Panzer IV ausf. D was produced by Tamiya, in 1:35 scale. The mold is made in the seventies, but I didn’t encounter many problems with assembling. The kit is containing 3 figurines, also, which is nice, it adds some life to it.
MiG 21 PFM
This kit was produced by Romanian brand Hobby Park. It is, as technology used, as old as the plane it’s self 🙂 – so I have to modify a lot, to sand a lot, fill gaps modify parts, etc. … a lot of patience needed to finish it.
Sho’t Kal Alef
It was a little difficult to build this model tank. It was a customized version of British Centurion Mk 5 for IDF needs.
T34/85 – Romanian variant – scale 1:72
Like the Panther earlier, it was a nice kit to build (it comes from Zvezda, too). The little soldiers are from Zvezda, too.
Academy AH64 (IAF) – 1:72 scale
On this model I tried a new type of paints (Hataka lacquer paints). It wasn’t a immediate success, but I’m still learning. The model was painted in IAF cammo.
