MP Miniatures is a blog dedicated to scale modeling. This hobby has been in my life for more than a quarter of a century, being a constant source of enjoyment and relaxation. This blog was created to share some of the models I’ve been building over the years and help me documenting the latest projects, keeping track of experiments with different techniques and its results. I hope you will enjoy it and that you will find information useful for your own scale modelling projects.
The Focke-Wulf Ta 152 H-1 was a high altitude fighter design by Kurt Tank, based on his previous creation, the Fw 190, but with a larger wings, different engine and tail section (just to name the most obvious differences). Around 10 years ago, I was given the chance to review this model kit and it impressed me on how crisp the parts were, although it lacked some details. So after gathering some photo etched parts, plastic stock, metal tubing and copper wire, I decided to add a few simple details . Continue reading “Focke-Wulf Ta 152 H-1 (1:72 SCALE)”
Continuing from where we left on our previous installment, in the second part of this little model’s build log, its painting and finishing will be discussed. It will be completed displaying the livery of aircraft 511, belonging to Tayeset 101 “First Fighter” of the Israeli Air Force.
This will be a quick post, showing the model presently at my bench. It is a F-16C in 1:144 scale, built using a kit from Revell. The model is great (this is already the third time I am using this particular kit), but there are some fit issues that need to be addressed. Continue reading “F-16C BARAK (1:144 SCALE) PART 1”
After some years of building scale models, you can gather a small collection. I like to have a consistent look in my small collection and for my 1:72 military vehicle models, I settled in presenting them in a simple wood base with a brass identification label. The assembly of such base will be the focus of this post.

The last installment of this little Sea King build will briefly show how it was painted and weathered. We last saw the model primed in black, unifying the base color of all the model’s components. I’ve used black simply because it was the color I wanted to use for the clear part’s interior frames. Continue reading “SH-3G SEA KING (1:144 SCALE) Part 4”
After a few weeks away from the model, here are a few photos showing what has been done in the last few days. Continue reading “SH-3G SEA KING (1:144 SCALE) PART 3”
This second installment of the Sea King build is focused on the model’s windows, specially showing the approach used to open the fuselage windows. Continue reading “SH-3G Sea King (1:144 scale) PART 2”
