Here´s another 1/144 addict!
I usually build in 1/32 and 1/48, so why bother with such small things as 1/144?
I started when I couldn´t decide between two paint schemes on a Academy 1/32 F/A-18C Hornet kit.
I bought two small (and cheap!) Revell 1/144 F/A-18´s, and I was suprised by the high quality of them.
Then came the SWEET Hurricane MkI Fabric Wing and I bought a box, and was suprised to find TWO kits in there!
Fit, detail and decals were fantastic so I got the Wildcat... and the Macchi C200... and the Bf109.... and the P-51B Mustangs..... and are waiting for more to come!
PLATZ is another range of small super kits so I got their P-51D Mustangs,
Fw190D-9, F-8 Crusader and are waiting for the Hellcat and Thunderbolt!
The big advantages with this small scale is;
You can build as many aircrafts you possibly want to, as they hardly take up any shelf space.
You can build aircrafts variying in sieze from the Wildcat to the An124, and still be in the same scale.
Now I admit that I do collect every new issue from SWEET, PLATZ, Dragon and Revell.
Add to all this the old brands and It´s a quite big range you have to choose from.
These small kits are easy and fast to build, making them the perfect diversion from more "serious" builds in the larger scales!
Don´t forget: they are dead cheap considering what you get in the boxes (newly moulded kits that is!)!
Bring ´em on!
