boxy planes in 1:250

I haven't built anything between late august 2019 and last sunday when I got hit by a craving for small boxy planes la PR models.

Since then I've built 5 Mirage 2000s (2 B, 1 C, 1 D, 1 N) and 1 Su-25.

The Mirage 2000s are Steven75's original single seater that I converted to a two-seater (basic liveries, no unit markings). I also added the landing gear. The Su-25 us from PR models.

Today's build was a 2000N in desert camo and the first 2-seater with a corrected front end.

The Su-25 is big, the Mirages are tiny!

Hi Carlos:
This is just like your beginning.
I must say that the Sukoy and the Delfin in boxy look as good as the more rounded planes at a small scale. Those two are in my to do list already.
I even try to recolor the Delfin in tiger met livery.
Don't take me wrong, I also like the Migs, and the Mirages.
Thank you for sharing.

They indeed look like what I did when I was a teenager. Except mine were hand-drawn, accuracy was lmiited and I had zero concept of scale.

Nice boxing models, I'm trying at this moment W&P's XV-25 a la Japoneise. Very good airplanes, Cafe, Tony.

Look at those straight lines... makes for a quick and easy assembly and yet it still looks like the subject, you really can't go wrong with paper models, no matter the design style.

Thank you!

Oover the week I've built some unreleased models from Steven 75 during lunch break.

Wednesday: F-86F Sabre (but the livery seems to be from an A model of the Montana ANG).

Thursday: F-16C in primer

Enlarged boxy

Thank you for sharing. And not to hijack your thread, but I did some enlarged a while ago on thicker card and was very pleased.
