My 1/72 collection, part IV; Folland Gnat India, Saab Draken, Dornier Alphajet Togo, Mitsubishi Zero, Hawker Hurricane Yugoslavia, Spitfire Pacific forces

Here another batch of my 1/72 collection. In this case, all these were bought in a big lot, ready built but in very poor shape and condition, missing parts, yellowed paint application (bad varnish used), peeling away decals, incredibly dusty.... I took the chance to sand them, repair them, clean the cockpits and give them exciting paint jobs and decals, most of them printed by myself :) .

Leopold Hasegawa German WW2 Canon Model kit Built and painted 1/72

Here, the Leopold gun! a kit built by my father, which I and my brother painted. We didn't buy the crew of Hasegawa, which was about half the price of the cannon itself, but instead reused some various model kit men;
