Letov S-21 1/72

In the middle of 1920s our army had two main fighter planes – Letov Š-20 and Avia BH-21. Both manufacturers offered a trainer aircraft, which featured the main fuselage of the production aircraft, but with reduced weight and weaker engine Škoda HS 8Aa. Those trainers were Letov Š-21 and Avia BH-22 respectively. In the end, the army chose Avia, while Š-21 was produced in only two examples. The first Š-21 had a three-colour camouflage and was completely destroyed when its pilot Andrej Beneš couldn’t pull it out of the spin. The pilot survived thanks to the plane’s metal frame. Letov didn’t give up and built a second prototype (marked again as Š-21.1).

A10Mk.IA Cruiser tank 1/72 IBG

I’ve been thinking for a long time about building something other than an airplane. For starters, I‘ve chosen the well-known line World at War from IBG company, which is more for wargaming, but the level of detail, number of parts and easiness of construction is absolutely perfect for someone like me. I liked the shapes and I was also attracted to try camouflage on such a small scale, so I chose the A10 Cruiser.
