I noticed these at Hannants.  I might have to pick them up.  Yes, I am sick.

The wreckage of the Hornet has been located.  This is good news.  Some of the photos released so far are very interesting.

MXY-7 Ohka update

Sand and fill. Sand and fill.  Having gotten past the stage in the build where I just wanted to chuck it, I continue working on the Ohka.  I managed to get in about 45 minutes of modeling the other night.  I should be ready to attached the canopy and begin painting soon.  More photos as soon as I have something new to show.

Good news.  The long awaited IBG PZL P.11 series of kits looks like it will be out in April 2019.  If they are as good as the recent PZL P.37, then they will be must haves.

MXY-7 Update

Sorry, no pictures.  I hit this point in almost every build.  That point where I am ready to give up on the build.  This usually happens after priming.  I think the model looks good and I hit it with primer, and then, nothing but disappointment.  Well, that is what happened here.  However, I haven’t given up.  I haven’t quit.  I am pushing thru it and I hope to post some nice update photos soon.

Pepelatz Hs P.135

Time was when I could keep up with all the companies producing models, even the small cottage industry resin manufacturers.  However, these days not a week goes by where I don’t find a new company.  This one, Peplatz appears to be out of Russia and is producing a resin Hs P.135, a Luft’46 fighter design.
