„Bad Day – Beginning”
Schwerer Panzerspähwagen (Artilleriewagen) – DML 6073 1:35
Crew of a German heavy armoured train scout car - Schwerer Panzerspähwagen (Artilleriewagen) – stopped for a while ona wooden bridge over some river to catch some breath and rest from the cramped and stifling interior also to check the direction they're going. Fate has it, that right under their feet a Soviet partisan have just finished placing the demolition charges... Yes, this day is not going to be good.
Take a look at our new guide where Witek will show you how to make a nice diorama for the armoured train scout car!

There has been a lot written about scale model making. For some it's a way for spending spare time, for others a sports discipline (if we're talking about radio-controlled model kits) and it constantly evolves. Speed of this evolution which happened since 2008 until today is very similar to the speed in which today's computers develop. There is rarely a week in which no new model kits, aftermarket detail sets or some kind of tool or paint isn't announced. Companies are in a state of permanent arms race with their products that deliver to the modelling market more and more new goods which facilitate working in our hobby. The choice is huge right now and it's growing bigger and bigger each day!
The Su-22 airplane, though now being obsolete, has its place in the history of Polish aviation. Many modellers have some sentiment for this machine, so we hope that this article presenting the step by step building and painting process of Kitty Hawk's Su-22 UM 3-K in Polish livery with warthog's head on the nose would be a pleasant lecture. Below's the first part of our guide build, written and photographed by Piotr „Słoma” Słomiński - as usual with top notch photographs and a handful of useful modelling advice.
