I have a bit of space in a case at my local shop, and rotate models through it. This is a recent build that I have there now. It was the first kit I bought there, bought long before I took up building models again. I was there with my daughter for school project supplies, saw this, and thought I would have loved it when I was young. Then when I got it home and looked inside, figured if I piled right into it I would botch it, and put it aside. It survived a couple of moves, and I finally dug it out early this year....

For some reason, this first shot came out with a real winter feel.

Here are a few more:

This is a Polikarpov I-15bis, operating on ground attack duty on the Leningrad front during the first winter of the Siege. It is an old-tool ICM, in the Encore boxing from Squadron. Not a bad kit, actually....

It is 1/72, of course.

HyperScale's Group Build Guidelines

The objective of this Group Build is to encourage as many modellers as possible to build their kits and share their progress via words and photos on this Forum.

You are welcome to post general construction tips or relevant reference information and photos to this Forum too.

This Group Build will feature WWI Aircraft Kits.

  1. This Group Build will run until 31 December, 2011.

  2. Build as many kits as you like.

  3. Conversions, aftermarket and scratchbuilding are all permitted.

  4. Any markings are acceptable.

  5. Document your progress and do a write-up on your build - where did you have trouble, what improvements did you make, what markings did you choose and why? It would be GREAT if everyone would do a writeup and submit it to HyperScale as a Feature Article.
