Ever since I saw this Black and White picture of an Argentine Air Force F-86F-40 Sabre in NMF I totally fell in love with the plane.
I started this build the minute I found I had a stashed Academy Fw 190 D9 and Eduard’s 72367 PE set. This PE set is actually designed for the Hasegawa kit but I decided to challenge myself and fit it to the Academy kit.
One of my hobby friends came with the idea of doing a GB to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Kursk.
Needless to say I was keen on starting it, and I even got a new T-34/76 for the build. However, after a short run through my stash, I
Probably the most exotic of all the Mirage versions in service with the Argentine Air Force, the Mara (patagonian hare) makes for an interesting subject and a rather easy conversion that would stand out in any delta wing lover’s collection. 2586
The Argentine decal producer has just announced an exciting new decal sheet for all the delta winged fans out there.

Last weekend, in a La Plata (56Km away from Buenos Aires, Argentina) the local La Plata scale model club hosted their traditional yearly contest. While weather didn't really help, the most hard core Argentine modelers from near and afar convened together for a couple of days of camaraderie in a
Building the quick and dirty Churchill, I found some pictures of Churchill tanks carrying these helmets on the stowage areas.
3 days from shrinkwrapped kit box to this petite representation of the Churchill tank? Including weathering? Yup, you can bet the stash on it! Come on in and check how our editor managed to finish this model in a weekend… sorta.

Some work done to improve ESCI's old Hetzer.
Part 2 will include the painting process!
For those regular to B72 this is the kit that I started back in early 2010 and, in fact, it is the kit that brought me back to the hobby. However, for some reason, it fell to the unbuilt “shoe box of shame” and I had lost forgotten about it
Another great collaboration from Fabian Vera. This time he shares his improvements over the rather basic Hobby Boss Ah-1S Cobra kit using scratch built details and aftermarket decals. 2331
