So I decided to take up the challenge of making all the DCS aircraft as platic models and build my first model since my teenage years.

Here's the first one to be finished:



Sorry about the terrible photo.

I might move on to the A-10C next.

Amazing work on the model!

You guys have ZEN like patience.

Lots of respect !

Back in the days I used to do that too, but no where near that level. Maybe that's why I blew them up with fire crackers after New Years Eve, lighting the fuse and toss them down from 3rd floor. My dear Mom loved that mess in the back yard. LoL
The worst I did was set the Nimitz on fire in the tub, she really loved that one

Not properly in DCS (yet ) but some plastic stuff. Airfix 1/72, horrible plastic to work with, but finished.

There's an A-10C by Hasegawa in 1/72. Don't know if easily available but it's there.

I didn't pay attention to exact DCS models, but I think most of them are easily available since there's no rare aircraft (Su-25T and Ka-50 aside).

Thanks! It's the Eduard Mig-21bis "Around the world" kit in 1/48.
I got the pilot figure from PJ Productions.

I've bought the Italeri kit in fact, as it's supposed to be one of the better A-10C kits out there (Italeri isn't generally know for best accuracy generally).
Eduard makes a number of photo etched parts that gets the Italeri kit to an A-10C standard:

I'm starting out in model making and have only tried Airfix models so far. What is better about the other manufacturer's plastic, and what sort of difference does it make to the making process?
