Orlando Rueda lives is Bogotá, Colombia, and is a General and Traumatology Surgeon. Since he began to contribute with Modeler Site, month after month we were amazing about his incredible 1/72 models, mainly built with very simple an inexpensive kits, which Orlando added his talent on.

This is a good example what we could do with plastic, and a lot of love for the modelling

We hope to have in close future a full note about how Orlando builds one of this beauties.


A Heller kit with Preiser figures. The whole interior and canopy were scratchbuilt, belongs to Wolfgang Spate (99 victories).
