Question!!!

Hi all,

Until now I have only build ship models (see my threads on this Forum), but I would like to try and build an airplane. My question is what card model planes in scale 1:33 have the best quality, because when I start I like to build a real good and detailed one, and not just a sloppy one, so which brand has the best quality models ?? T.i.A.

John.

In the "printed kit" category, except if the kit is really old, I'd certainly recommend Halinski. I have shown some of them in this forum. That's not to say that other publisher's kits are bad, of course. Many GPM's, Answer/Angraf, Wak, Orlik and others can yield excellent models...

Your question is a little subjective. Personally I think the most detailed and best quality ones are by Halinski:

CARD MODELS

A look round the card modelling forums will give you a good idea of what they are like.

If you want large models, accurate, but simple to build, I recommend you my models.
It's a 1:30 scale jet fighter , but the only problem is that I'm planning them without landing gears .

You can find them on the DGA site.
they are free to download.

this is the link.

look for the title.....Yoav Hozmi's Models.

YOAV

Most detailed kits are Halinski, some recent Maly kits are also very well designed and full of detail. Zarkov's kits are also detailed, and nicely designed. All of them have a good variety of subjects. GPM also has some very good airplane kits, specially pre-WWII.

Yoav's kit are great visually, and look easy to build (though I haven't built any yet).

Maybe another question to guide you better would be: What kind of plane, or what era are you interested in? That would help a lot to narrow the choices.

I think you are making a bit too much science by asking for the best models. My recommendation is to build a few moderate complexity airplanes before diving into a super detailed kit like Halinski. Even for some of us experienced plane builders, the complexity and confusing instructions will cause frustration and may turn the whole thing to a negative experience

Try the Ford Tri-Motor available in the download section of this forum. Since it has a detailed interior, and nice printed details on the exterior that can easily be layered to add more detail, I think it would be a great one for the cross-over.

I built this one stock, back in the 1980s and it is an impressive model. I had been a plastic and wood builder for 30 years and used this model as my return-to-paper cross-over.
