Review: Tamiya 1/48 V-1 (Fieseler Fi103)


Review: Revell 1/72 Challenger 1

The Challenger 1 Main Battle Tank was the successor of the successful Chieftain MBT in British service. Initially developed for the Iranian army, but with the fall of the Shah of Iran the Iranians lost interest. When the UK MBT90 project failed the British Army got interested in the Challenger and the Challenger 1 entered British service in 1983.

Review: Revell 1/144 F-19 Stealth Fighter

This is one of those kits you find in your local shops bargain bin for a few Euros. It simple, it's small and it's bad. in fact it's so bad the instant you open the box you know how bad it's going to be by just looking at it for just a second. But to me this is 'one of those' kits that I just need to have because I had a Micro Machines F-19 toy as a kid (which was probably based on Monogram's F-19A 'Spectre')

Review: Takom 1/144 Landkreuzer P1000 Ratte

Sometimes you hope a manufacturer will release that one vehicle you had in mind but nobody did. Enter the infamous Ratte. This land battleship has been on my mind ever since I started building plastic models. To my great surprise Takom has released a 1/144 scale model of it. And now there is a 1/72 kit of this released by Modelcollect. Now if only someone would release a Focke-Wulf Triebflügel please..

Review: Italeri 1/48 Cessna 172 Skyhawk

This is quite an interesting little kit released by Italeri. The box-art features a Cessna 172 landing on the Red Square in Moscow, and this drawing is based on true facts™. This aircraft was flown by the then 18 year old Mathias Rust from Germany to Moscow via Iceland, Norway and Finland, bypassing every Soviet Air Defense system on the way due to a combination of extreme luck and confusion in the Soviet Air Defense system. It seemed like you didn't need a SR-71 flying Mach 3.3 at 80,000 feet to fly all across Soviet Russia after all.
