Italeri 1/72 Su-47 ‘Berkut’

The Su-47 is, to many people, a spaceship of an aircraft. It is an aircraft that mystifies, and captures the imagination. With it’s forward swept wings combined with a long fuselage and canards – it’s defiantly an extremely unique aircraft. The aircraft was a test bed for forward swpt wings, something the Russian aviation industry…

Syhart Decals 1/72 Alpha Jet Solo Display 2003

The Alpha Jet has been, and remains, a core part of the Belgian Air Component’s arsenal. Perhaps, however, it is more famous for being a vessel for some very creative and colourful paint schemes, these include some plane-shaped national flags, to some more abstract schemes. Syhart has made it possible to make one such scheme…

Airfix and Heller 1/72 Dassault-Dornier Alpha Jet

Disclaimer: I was originally writing two reviews. However, I found that both kits were so similar it was pointless to do two reviews when I could combine them into one streamlined review.  The humble Alpha Jet is one of my favourite aircraft of all time. The mount of the Patrouille de France and formally of…

Dekl’s Asas de Portugal Decasl for 1/72 Alpha Jet

This product is something that I am very happy about. I felt the European market had been screaming out for these attractive markings for the Alpa Jet for some time. As a girl who loves her aerobatic teams, I decided to approach Dekl’s and suggest that they make these markings as I wanted them, and…

Trumpeter Sukhoi Su-27 (Early Type)

Kuld be avoided completely; but the new Zvezda molds are the best in my opinion. Thankfully, with the new technologies and engineering used by model kit manufacturers recently, we now have a wide selection to choose from, like the classic aircraft from the cold war, or the more modern versions of the new millennia, such…

Academy KAI T-50 with Dek’Ls Black Eagles Decals

The KAI T-50 could be viewed as Korea’s answer to the MB346. It’s a modern jet trainer/lead-in-fighter trainer with light combat characteristics. It’s the first indigenous jet in Korea to be supersonic, and is being sold internationally – with the Philippines, Thailand, and Iraq having placed orders over the MB346 or BAe Hawk. The aircraft…

Lift Here Models 1/72 IAR 99 Șoim

The IAR 99 Soim is the primary jet trainer of the Romanian Air Force (Forţele Aeriene Române). It was designed and built by Avioane Craiova- the Romanian aircraft manufacturer. About 20 are in current service and a new model is being designed for first flight later this year. Perhaps understandably the aircraft isn’t one that has…

48-040 Begemot Mikoyan MiG-31BM/BSM – The improved ‘Foxhound’

With the release of a fantastic 1:48 kit of the mighty MiG-31BM/BSM ‘Foxhound’, it was only a question of time, when will the Russian decal manufacturer Begemot produce some nice marking options, to the three, already offered in the kit. It was a short wait indeed, as the new decal sheet hit the stores less…

1:48 AMK MiG-31BM/BSM ‘Foxhound’

And it finally arrived! The eagerly awaited AMK (AvantGarde Model Kits) 1:48 MiG-31BM/BSM ‘Foxhound’. The Macau based company really wet the appetites of the scale modelling crowds with CAD shots and later sprue parts of this iconic Soviet interceptor. By a stroke of luck and a good friendship, AMK provided me with the 3rd kit…
