1/144 scale aircraft : O/400 finished
« on: May 01, 2018, 07:29:13 PM »
Have recently started building 1/144 scale aircraft.  It has certainly rekindled the modelling mojo.  I really like this scale despite the fact I need to wear my glasses to work on them now.  Anyways have decided to start a thread where they can all be kept in the one place, 
First up some I did a while ago.

Ansett BAe-146.  Revell Kit with aftermarket decals


Western Airlines DC-3.  Academy



Fairey Battle.  Zvezda


and the latest.  La-5FN.  Zvezda

Those are some real beauties! You have an enviable talent for air liners. I've built the DC-3 myself but yours is much nicer.

The Battle and La-5 are little gems as well. I especially like the look of the tinted canopy against that famous RAF camo.

I think 1/144 is an under-appreciated scale and it's a treat to see your outstanding results with it!

Yet more little lovelies! The Sturmovik is great but that Stuka is really sweet!

Not only is the canopy framing impressive but my what a sleek, streamlined undercarriage!

Sometimes spats are even better in a smaller scale!

Thanks Fellas.  Enjoying this scale right now. 

Finally have finished one of the New Cap city helicopters/ autogyro, whatever it is, although not in the scale I started with.   Made from the Zevzda Bf109.  Engine cowling is a 1/72 Chaffee road wheel.  Rotor hubs are 1/72 Sherman road wheel with cut down 1/72 B-17 prop hubs.  Booms are a combination of brass and plastic rod.  Rotor blades are cut down from a 1/72 chopper.

Wow your Cap City helicopter is fantastic!

I think your work on those rotor hubs really paid off! They look most convincing!

You mentioned another thing I like about 1/144, that larger-scale wheels and other doo-dads can be used. Helps keep the spares box from exploding.

Great stuff!

Beatuiful!!  Looks like a successful collaboration between Messerschmitt and Focke-Angelis.

It takes a very special sort of madness to model in 1:144----my hat's off to you!  What incredible artistry!
A big 'thank you' to whoever it was that invented the OptiVisor!

The autogyro looks great! That Zvezda soft plastic can be a bear to work with, too.
