One of my hobbies is building scale models from aircraft.. Mostly military, old and new ones..
I'm building those kits, not the RC-Versions..
Best kit I ever had was from Tamiya, fits perfectly.. Worst was the F-14 Black Bunny from Revell, the parts didn't fit in any way..
But Tamiya is too expensive..
I have already build:
-Revell F-14A Scale 1/32
-Revell Mirage 2000 Scale 1/72
-Revell Su-47 Scale 1/144
-Revell B2 Scale 1/144
-Revell Lavochkin LF-5 Scale 1/144
-Revell Apache Longbow Scale 1/72
-Revell UH-1D SAR Scale 1/72
-Heller Spitfire Desert Version (rare kit),Scale 1/72
-Heller F-4U Corsair Scale 1/72
-Heller MiG-21 Scale 1/72
-Italeri MiG-29 Scale 1/72
-Italeri P-38 Scale 1/72
-Academy Subaru Impreza WRC 2005 Scale 1/72 (I know, it's a car )
Right now in Process:
-Tamiya P-51 Scale 1/72
-Revell F4 Phantom Scale 1/72

I'm into building scale model aircraft (mostly military) myself. I haven't built a kit in 15 years and I've just got back into it. My current build is the 1982 Revell F-15E Strike Eagle kit. I am converting the kit into an F-15D two-seater. With the help of lots of after-market parts and a lot of patience (the parts do not fit very well, especially the intakes) it should be a good looking build after I finish. Always good to meet a fellow enthusist.
If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the outcome of a hundred battles.

Quoting Wolverine (Reply 2): I'm not a professional, but I think, they're not that bad..
In fact, what I see in your albums looks very good to me, especially given the small (more challenging) scales for military fighter and attack aircraft that you seem to favor (mainly 1:72 and 1:144). For the types pictured in your album, some serious modeling skills are needed to achieve the results pictured. Keep up the good work and, most of all, enjoy!
