I've been building 1/144 for about 10 years now, since I moved into the duplex, where the golf cart garage has become my workshop. Also the laundry room and pantry. So I don't have room for 1/48!

This one just got my first award from "away from home"
Dragon X-15



Eduard's MiG-21MF, with the PE set. The ladder, intake and exhaust covers, chocks and drip pan are super additions.



A pair of Minicraft B-29s. The front one is from the Last Mission of WW2. My friend Bill Mathay was navigator.



A Dragon SH-60.



A Pavla airfield diorama, with EN Ryder's Spitfire.



And finally, we don't do all 1/144 aircraft, do we?
This is Dragon's Eisenbahnpanzer and boxcar in 1/144.



I have more.

Those are all really nice. I didn't even know Dragon made 1/144th railroad cars. You should post more of your 1/144th!

Here's another Eduard 1/144 MiG-21. This one's the MiG-21bis. Just HAD to do the Finnish one. I also used the Eduard PE set.

There are 3 new 1/144 Eduard MiGs, the MF, the bis and the SMT. So far I've built the MF and the bis. SMT to follow. The only differences between these 3 kits are the spine, which changed between the variants. Oh, yes the decals are different too.

The PE set has an interior, tail pipe, inlet and exhaust covers, ladder, main gear doors, plumbing for the gear, 2 sets of chocks, and (my favorite) a drip pan which goes under the aircraft. Because of the ladder, chocks and pan, I mounted the kit on a piece of foam core.

It's mentioned in another post about the masks in the kit. They're wonderful, and include all the small antennas, as well as the big ones, and the canopy. Picture below.

LADDER AND CHOCKS



YEP, IT'S SMALL!!

Thanks for looking
