I feel really disappointed for my friend who scratched his 1/72 Aerovan, made resin moulds and then passed them on to Kiwi Resins for sale!

I'm keen to try their 1/48 Lavochkin La-9. Does anyone here have any building experience with Mikro-Mir kits?

More things in the works:

!/48 XH-26 Jet Jeep:




Could easily see this being done in civilian markings as a personal vehicle parked in a drive way.

Also thought I had posted this one already:  1/48 Bristol Type 171 Sycamore:










Then there is this: 1/32 Yokosuka MXY-7 Model 11/ MXY-7 K-1 Ohka:






And finally, there is a new 1/48 Kaman Huskie OH-43D (HOK-1) in the works:
