There has never been an era of fighter plane development in which the “need for speed” was more prevalent, more of a driving factor, than during the immediate post-WWII era and into the early/mid ’50s. At that time, speed records fell almost weekly, sometimes, daily, and creating fighters with ever higher performance was a point […]
No, it’s not that I got the kids’ song title wrong, it’s just my most recent, and yet most ancient, model kit score! Blasting out of the deep past, when the very existence of plastic models was something of a novelty and not having to work wood was opening up new possibilities in our favourite […]
If that sounds like a trick question to you, then you can imagine how I felt! This box-full-o-awesome arrived at my door just a week or so ago from my excellent friend Alan. He said he had some kits he thought I might like, and knowing my penchant for the weirdly awesome, he gathered together […]

For those who want a taste of some Luft ’46 craziness, check out my missile-toting He-219 G5/RT. Made from the old FROG Uhu kit, the Vielfrass (wolverine) is a What-If version of Heinkel’s famous night fighter reimagined for anti-radar duties. Its’ in the What If section of the Planes page!
Digging through my stash, I came up with this golden oldie! Fire up the Wayback machine, because it’s time to take a look at an Out of Box Review for the FROG D0-335 Pfeil! This old kit is actually quite nice and very interesting, being the trainer version! Check it out!
Frog’s offering of the Focke-Wulf Ta 152H was the first of many, and by no means the best. However, let’s turn back the clock and take a look at this ancient replica of Tank’s ulitmate fighter; you’ll be surprised at just how NOT bad it is! It’s to be found in the Planes section, of […]
