  3. Hello there! It's been a while since I posted here something and that's because I've been at the Scouts summer camp. Three weeks in the countryside without electricity, tap water and walls around me. And without the plastic models! So I decided to grab this kit first as it laid on the top of the "Maybe" stack from the other time. I am very inspired by the @Moa build which is above: At first, I started with the tail, then moved straight for the cockpit and when the cockpit was curing, I worked on the wings. Current state is: fuselage halves glued tog

  9. Consider the aspect of this chubby little fella. And consider that this was 1922, four years after WW1, and that for many, many years, biplane and even sporadic triplanes would populate the sky. Progress always finds reluctance. Another civil jewel from Avis. Good detail, very smart engineering, care taken on achieving small and less intrusive sprue gates -unlike some short-run kits that have thick gates-, thought put into the breakdown to avoid sinkholes, nice interior detail, attractive an unusual type, reasonably priced, surely a superb subject choice. These last r

  11. Well, it's official - I now have the inter-war civil aircraft bug, and next up is this little guy - Avis' 1/72nd Bristol Racer. 'What the heck is a 'Bristol Racer' I hear you cry? Well, wikipedia says The Bristol Type 72 Racer was a British racing monoplane designed by Wilfrid Thomas Reid and built by the Bristol Aeroplane Company at Filton, England. - and who am I to doubt them. More to the point, it looked like this: Who couldn't love that? Well, apparently the pilots who had to fly it because according to wiki it was t
  12. A short run kit of a pretty obscure subject. A few little issues putting it together but I like the result. WIP here: For scale:

  15. It's difficult to recognize the future when it is in the present. As with other many cases in aviation history (and History at large), the American (Shelton) AG-4 Gyro Crusader arrived too soon. Eight years ago, attracted by its aspect, between futuristic and comic book, I made a scratch-built model of the AG-4 Gyro, thinking that there was no chance that any manufacturer would ever issue a kit of it. I am glad I was proven wrong, so others can enjoy the incredibly modern looks of this remarkable plane, created in 1933 and flown in 1935. My scratch of 10 years ago:
  16. Below is my completed 1/72 Avis RFB Fantrainer 400 in The Royal Thai Air Force colours. I thoroughly enjoyed building this kit, yes, it's a short run kit, but, with patience and plenty of dry runs, trimming and very little filling you can achieve a good result. This aircraft is a real tail sitter and you need to be creative as to where you put the required ballast, I use a product called RIPMAX and white glue to fix it in. Comments welcome ! Here is the etched brass fret included in the kit, I was unable to use the small aerials as they were way beyond my modelling skill a

  18. After looking for something different for this GB, I came across this on that famous Lowestoft model suppliers website. I knew little about the British Arctic Air Route Expedition and set about trying to find out more. This led to me purchasing a copy of Dancing on Ice by Jeremy Scott, whose father J.M Scott was a member of the expedition team. The expedition took place between the war years, returning to Britain in 1932 and was one of the last great adventures into what was then uncharted territory. In my opinion the book is well worth a read.

  24. I'm calling it done..... This is the 1/72 scale La-200 (with Korshun radar) kitted by the Russian manufacturer 'Avis'. The La-200 was an attempt by Lavochkin to produce a twin-engined, radar-equipped all-weather fighter - in competition with the Mikoyan I-320 and Sukhoi's early Su-15 - a role eventually fullfilled by the Yak-25. Its a limited run kit - accurate, but lots of fettling needed - the worst part in the outward-canted, levered suspension, trailing link main undercarriage - a very weak multi-part assembly that won't support the weight of the model. I had to use a clear plastic pr
