My Amodel DH Dove project in 1/72 was proudly published in the June issue of Scale Aircraft Modelling magazine. Gary has made an impressive editing job with my just passable photos. One thing that the magazine does not bring, though, is the vector files to cut the masks for the passenger windows. I am making them available for your personal/non-commercial use in four formats: cdr, ai, dwg and pdf, compressed in a single file. Please note that there are two sets of drawings, one slightly smaller than the other, to accommodate particular imperfections that may have occurred during the installation of the clear parts. 

Today everybody wants something 3D printed to enhance the models, but most of the time they are just not available. Here, I will show you a simple method to make your control panels using essentially plastic bits and decals.

Something that can add a lot of interest and realism to passenger aircraft models: window curtains. Here I show my cheap method for simulating them in 1/72 scale. I am sure it can be adapted for other airliner scales.

Besides the usual fine reamers that most modelers know, heavy-duty reamers are also very useful in modeling. Check it out.

This is a short description of my vignette displaying the RPM Ford Tf-C in 1/72 scale. The Tf-C was the first Polish design of an armored vehicle, even if using a Ford chassis. The RPM offering is not a good kit, but it was an excuse to use rivets and to try a different display base.
