I'd like to see this one. Be a good little build, and one could put it next to it's child.


in progress:

 1/32 Hase Me-109G2/R6
1/35 Su-85/ winter- attach to base
1/32 DH-9a USMC- Delivered to Flying Leathernecks Museum, MCAS Miramar
1/32 Mig-3:winter paint and weathering: in progress and base
Yacht America need some parts.

I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place...
Yes, I built models when I was a kid too.... no they're not toys....

MN Modelar are listed as vendor for Moson Kit Show next Weekend, I hope I can get more informations from them.

 

Couldn´t find out anything, the staff at their booth wasn´t very helpful.

Mystery plane or late April joke.

Moson show is over, is there something new about the origin of Striped Fighter company?

I hadn't seen one in 1:32 scale.  Would have preferred that, but this was a very enjoyable build.  Very few parts count.

Very impressive, the sprue photos have only just been put on the site, I had a look earlier today, curious Striped Fighter don't have a website.

Odd, the photos show parts that appear to be for an engine to be built for the kit, but the engine covers are molded to the rest of the fuselage so as to appear that the engine panels cannot be removed to display an engine.

Drills, scribers and or razor saw will open the engine panels right up. I hope the engine will be decent.
