Some of my former models


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone~~This is my first post in the ARC forum.

Now I'm a Chinese student visiting University of Nevada. Since I've left most of my modeling tools at home, and bring finished models back to China is not an easy task, it's quite possible that I can't build any new models this year. So this time I would like to show some of my previous works first, and I'll show detailed pictures of them in later posts. I'm looking forward to your opinions~~~~

Last year I only built 4 plane models, 3 of them are F-104s. The first one is Hasegawa 1/48 F-104J of Air Proving Wing, JASDF. This is the last model finished before my departure last fall.

Another F-104, Hasegawa 1/48 F-104S, The Last Starfighter displayed during the Tiger Meet in 1996:

F-104 again, Hasegawa 1/48 F-104G ROCAF with home made decals. The Hasegawa F-104 kit is really a great one! In fact I've already planned to build at least 15 of them, representing 15 operators around the world :jaw-dropping:

Some more works, Academy 1/48 S-199. The menorah shown in the background is a gift from a friend of mine who has been working in Israel for several years, and is my motivation to make this model
