My scale modeling interests are primarily WWI and WWII military subjects but I have lots from all eras in my stash.
I built Hasegawa’s 1/48 scale Ki-27 Nate two or three years ago. Despite it’s age, the Hasegawa kit is excellent, and presents very few problems.

Tamiya 1/48 scale Messerschmitt Bf109E-3 flown by Obt. Kurt Wolff of III/JG52 during the Battle of Britain. He force landed at Coquelles in the summer of 1940, after combat with RAF Spitfires.

This is the AMT/ERTL 1/48 scale Curtiss P-40N Warhawk. The markings represent a P-40N from the 35th Fighter Squadron, 8th Fighter Group operating in New Guinea during 1944.
