Good evening all, Today I have for your viewing another of the venerable Matchbox Hawker Fury's, built as the kit provided option of a Royal Yugoslavian Air Force machine. As typical of the kit, it built well. My only additions were some internal framing that is no longer particularly visible, and a fuselage number 81 as seen on a Kora decal sheet. Without an actual photo, it's accuracy is unknown, but I wanted to break up the flat silver finish. And yes, the Matchbox kit is accurate with these markings. While most Yugoslav Fury's had a different radiator and landing ge
It'll be another 1/100 scale Eldon Match Kit from me. Having built a few Match Kits, I know exactly what to expect: rivets to sand off, decal placement marks to fill and a finished result that will bear little resemblance to the real thing! Nevertheless, I do find them quite fun. The kit includes decals for rather a plain looking post war Mustang - just don't use the cover photo as a placement guide!

Actual planes on display in different museums claim to be IF-86Ds,
Hi all, Here are some pictures of my latest model, Revells excellent 1/48 scale Republic F-84G Thunderjet finished in the markings of the Yugoslav Air Force. This kit is simply excellent and very well detailed out of the box but is often overlooked in favour of the more expensive but less accurate Tamiya model. The Yugoslav's received F-84's from 1953 onwards and some were delivered in the so-called Arctic scheme as shown here. This is the 3rd Yugoslav marked aircraft that I have finished this year, thanks to the encouragement of my very good Serbian friend Sasha who not only supplies me wit
