  1. Just finished this, the 1/72 Attack Squadron resin kit of the autonomous Fire Scout helicopter. It's small in this scale but really well cast with PE for some of the smaller parts. The kit is now sold under the Brengun label.
  2. Unique, and very nicely done. How was the Mikro-Mir kit to build?
  3. Although I remember my first kit – the old tool Airfix 1/72 Mossie – it's long gone and there's no photographic evidence. The earliest model that I have a record of is this Revell 1/72 Spad XIII, built in 1977 at age 17. It looks like I replaced the struts with stretched sprue, although I don't actually remember that. I do remember the paint job though; painstakingly drawing the checkered outlines with a Rapidograph technical pen, then filling in each black square with a fine brush. I also painted the roundels as I didn't have any decals in the correct style. I wish I still had this for nostalgia's sake. Favourite? That's a difficult one, but it's probably this 1/48 Monogram B-17G, which was built in 2004. Apart from re-scribing it I added resin wheels, lots of photo-etch inside and vac-form clear parts. I custom made the decals too. Although I'd do it differently now it still brings me joy, although I didn't always feel that way during the build... Theoretically my last build should be my best, but it's not (by a long shot). I think this Eduard 1/72 Bf 110 is, mostly because it's such a lovely kit to start with and I was quite happy with the painting and weathering. It's got Brassin resin wheels and gun-nose.
