is here that I will post either reviews and builds or
completed kits in scales not covered in the main part of the
Most of the kits shown here are of aircraft that if done in
the larger scales would be difficult to display due to their
This scale has been popular for years for airline models due
to their large size. Towards the end of the 2000s Dragon
Models under the Cyber Hobby name started releasing some post
WWII military planes in this scale. Despite their small size
these kits are relatively well detailed and provided modelers
with the ability to build and display some interesting
aircraft they might not otherwise have room for. These include
the B-35 and B-49 flying wings, Avro Vulcan, Russian Tu-95
Bear and the B-70. I did not do either a kit review or a build
log for these just a few photographs of the completed models
and interiors if there are any. Thanks for looking !
This was the first kit I built and overall was quite pleased
with it. It did provide some challenges in assembly and
painting, more often than not because of their small size.
The interior on this kit was pretty simplistic and crude and
hardly worth a photo.
This kit provided a fairly detailed interior for the scale.
A photo for a size
kit had no interior at all but due to the size of the cockpit
windows it wouldn't be seen anyway. The painting chart
supplied with the kit left a lot to be desired, fortunately
Wikipedia had a nice high definition photo of one with very
similar markings so I used that as a painting guide.
kit was not as nice as the B-70 or B-35 with a lot more flash and hard
to clean up sprue attachment points and poor fitting parts.
for a size comparison here it is next to a KC-135
1/144 scale is another scale that is quite popular
for aircraft too large to be done in larger scales or for
those with limited display space. I do not have a lot of kits
in this scale but have accumulated a few over the years and in
some cases if I feel motivated will do a review or a build
log. With a link to the review and photos of the completed
