    Very nicely done ! Maybe you can answer my question about plastic modelling. In the past I've built some models in 1/72. I did find that some parts are rather small and me getting close to 50 doesn't exactly help. So, are 1/48 kits beter in that respect ? I would think that the parts in 1/48 kit would be bigger and easier to handle. Is that true ?

    Hi Bengo!

    Well as you can see I build mainly in 1:72 scale, though I did a few models in 1:48 as well. The answer to your question is yes and no. Although basic bit and pieces are larger, there's usually a lot more pieces that are moulded integrally with bigger parts in smaller scales, yet as single parts in larger scales. I guess your best bet is to buy a model and try it.

    Nice work. The detail and weathering is excellent. I especially like the battle damage on the a-10 For the panel lines are you pre-shading or post-shading? I have tried my hand at both with lackluster results. But I am still getting used to handling the airbrush in general.
    Anyway keep up the good work.

    wow baxter, that's a really cool looking RC Hog

    anyhow

    My first finished builds of 2013. This models are probably one of the, if not the best in this scale. Egyptian machine was also equipped with Brengun photoetched parts, which were a real pain in the arse to install. Hope you like 'em and full article will be published in one of the future Scale Aircraft Modelling issues.
