Blog IPMS Belgium

This Blog is an online complement to the IPMS Belgium quarterly magazine, KIT. Its main aim is to allow for the publishing of reviews of new products graciously sent to us by various manufacturers and artisans and of reviews of new products purchased and/or tested by our members. Those are the type of reviews that we have been publishing in KIT for a very long time but it was felt that we needed another outlet, allowing us to publish faster, more regularly, more comprehensively and to a wider audience than can be done in a printed magazine.

Please find below our latest published reviews.

Heavy Paper Projects

British Nuffield Assault Tank A.T.4 OKB Grigorov 1/72, Ref.72094 British Nuffield Assault Tank A.T.10 OKB Grigorov 1/72, Ref.72096 Nuffield Mechanization and Aero was the brainchild of Lord Nuffield who was deeply involved in the development and mechanisation of the British army and the ‘ground’ section of the RAF. The Crusader cruiser tank was one ofContinue reading “Heavy Paper Projects”

Low-profile Bug Killer

TOR-M2/SA-15 ‘Gauntlet’ Zvezda 1/35, Ref. 3633 It is in a fairly large box that this kit comes in, packed with 334 parts laid out over six grey styrene sprues, one clear sprue, and two large separate hull ‘halves’. Added to this are two small sheets of mesh in two different sizes, a B&W instruction booklet,Continue reading “Low-profile Bug Killer”

Wacky Wacky World

The Mean Machine MPC 1/25, Ref. MPC935/12 What a great idea the MPC folks had in re-releasing the kits from the famed Hanna-Barbera cartoon Wacky Racers. I believe that at least four of those race ‘cars’ were released in 1969 by MPC, later also by Kellogs, and at least two of them, the Mean MachineContinue reading “Wacky Wacky World”

Eye in the Sky

Henschel Hs 126B/K ‘International’ Sabrekits 1/72, Ref. SBK72013 Very nice surprise coming from the Czech Republic and in particular from newcomers Sabrekits, is this brand new Hs 126 kit. I’ve always had a liking in this parasol-winged aircraft ever since I laid eyes and hands on the Matchbox kit a good mmmm.. 45 years ago.Continue reading “Eye in the Sky”

Unwanted Duckling

Breda 27 Metallico Prototypo Sabrekits 1/72, Ref. SBK72016 New from Sabrekits, the prototype version of the Breda 27 with its highly colourful livery. The aircraft first flew in 1933 and could well have been inspired by the Boeing P-26 Peashooter. Having said that, the P-26 was itself inspired by the racing aircraft Travel Air typeContinue reading “Unwanted Duckling”

Cute Little Bird

Robinson R-44 Astro/Raven KP 1/72, Ref. KPM 0215 It is always, for me in any case, nice seeing light aviation aircraft being marketed in any scale. 2020 brought us this kit from Stransky in the Czech Republic and it is now maybe more widely available from KP, a better-known manufacturer from the same country. DevelopedContinue reading “Cute Little Bird”

Bombing Mitten

Russian Light Bomber Yak-130 ‘Mitten’ Zvezda 1/48, Ref. 4818 The Yak-130, NATO code-named Mitten, is an advanced trainer aircraft designed to take over the Aero L-29 Delphin and L-39 Albatros. The advanced trainer entered service in 2007, and a combat trainer variant followed in 2009. Current operators include of course Russia, but also Algeria, Lao,Continue reading “Bombing Mitten”

Parasol Fighter Delight

Morane-Saulnier MS 225 C1 Sabrekits 1/72, Ref. SBK7007 The French Armée de l’Air modernisation programme in the early 1930s gave birth to a robust parasol wing fighter, the MS-225, first flown in 1932. The plane featured superior flight characteristics and agility, structural strength as well as simple maintenance and excellent reliability. By 1933 the ArméeContinue reading “Parasol Fighter Delight”
