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.
Submarines are a theme that caught my attention a number of years ago and to be able to gather a small collection, I have settled on the 1:350 scale, a nice compromise between size and detail (at least, in my humble opinion). Before buying this model, I knew next to nothing regarding Project 1710, but its slick look fascinated me and as it was in my elected scale, I could not resist to add it to my collection.

The second and final post of this build will cover its decoration, with special focus on how to mark its panel lines using acrylic washes. Continue reading “EUROFIGHTER TYPHOON FGR.4 (1:144 SCALE) – PART 2”
These 1:144 scale builds continue to keep me busy and I have enjoyed them very much. This time, I picked up an Eurofighter model, produced by Revell (the single seat version, kit #04282). A photo posted at a RedIt thread (and shown above at a lower resolution) was the catalyst for this build, as I could not resist to replicate such aircraft in model form. The largest challenge this build presents is to replicate all the ordnance carried by the aircraft, as it is not all included in the kit and that will be the main focus of this first post of the build.

Strange and experimental aircraft are a fascinating subject and a number of years ago, I tackled with this little gem. It is a model of the Rotodyne, produced by Anigrand and included as a bonus kit in their Raytheon Sentinel R1 1:144 scale kit. Continue reading “ROTODYNE (1:144 SCALE)”
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”
