Injected plastic model with waterslide decals, photoetched metal parts, and metal cast engine
This is Eduard's old 1/48 scale Fokker E3 finished as Ernst Udet machine back in 1916. Overall it is a nice kit if you consider the fact that was a limited run kit, with excellent photo etched parts produced back in 1994. However, if you compare it with the new release of the same model also from Eduard, the advantages of the new molds are obvious and the old one can be considered a collectors item. The poor plastic parts are not a major problem due to the quality of the photoetched parts and decals. It is not an easy kit, but most modelers can get a nice final result with patience and a few handy tools. I hope you like. I continue on my way to build more World War I Fokkers!

Out-of-the box construction
This is Italeri's 1/72 scale T34 Russian Army tank, armed with the 76mm gun. Overall it is a really nice kit, with good fit and detail. The link and length tracks are a bit difficult to build, but are way better then any vinyl option. I built this kit mostly to experience with some weathering techniques. It was primed with AK rust color then painted with Tamiya acrylics. Weathering was done with the hair spray technique followed by washes with Mig production black wash and various oil paint colors. I hope you like it!
