Italian F16 Hornet

By Alan Gomez

 

This is the 1/72 Italeri Italian F16 Hornet done in a scheme from a Tiger Meet. It’s done in Flat Black with green stripes and checkerboards.

The ‘18’ on the tail feathers means that it’s had 1,800 hours of service. You can’t see it, but the ejection handle and instruments are mad from photo-reduced paper. I used a needle for the Pitot tube.

Russian Winter

 

 by Robert Caruso

Russian WinterWhen the German Army invaded Russia on 22 June 1941, they expected the Blitzkrieg to drive into the heart of Russia before the year was over.

 

However, when the advance bogged down outside of Moscow, the Germans were forced to endure the long Russian winter.

 

Most soldiers were not equipped with winter uniforms and as a result were forced to find warmth by any means necessary. This vignette depicts two Germans warming themselves by a stove. This 1/35 scale kit by CMK had most of the stuff cast onto the base.
