My late-mark Spitfire adventure, Xtrakit and Airfix 1/72 Spit 22 and 24!

by Magnus Fridsell on April 25, 2015 in Aviation -- 13 Comments

This was quite a lengthy process, this double-build was started in the autumn of 2012 but then something else caught my interest and these sat on the shelf of doom for two and a half year. However, they were certainly […]

I finished this one a few months ago but I haven’t gotten around to do an article on it until now. So hang on, here is my story of how I came to build an old 1/48 Monogram P-38! I […]

Heller 1/72 Vampire F.3

by Magnus Fridsell on April 26, 2013 in Aviation -- 10 Comments

This project started with me buying the new Airfix Vampire T.11. When starting that build I realised that some synergies could be gained by doing another kit in about the same paint scheme. Many years ago I got a few […]


What-if Sweden!

More what-ifs! This time based around a general Swedish theme: aircraft that never served in the Swedish Air Force and Swedish aircraft painted in fictional markings. Note that some of the aircraft are fictional in themselves, can you spot them?

Flying Barrel What-if part 1!

by Magnus Fridsell on April 26, 2013 in Aviation -- 1 Comment

Swedish cold-war icon Saab J 29 was known as the “flying barrel” and even if it made sterling service defending the Swedish skies, many people feel that it was never developed to its full potential. One of these people, we […]


1/72 Hasegawa FW-190 D-9

by Magnus Fridsell on February 28, 2013 in Aviation -- 10 Comments

An end-of-February-addition from me… I got this one from a friend in unpainted condition and after languishing alone in it’s box for a few years I let it be part of my happy Ta-152-family… Big brother was finished before it’s […]


1/72 Eduard Bf-110 C

by Magnus Fridsell on January 26, 2013 in Aviation -- 12 Comments

A recently finished model (VERY recently, about 30 minutes ago or so…). This is the new Eduard 1/72 Bf-110 from the C/D-boxing. There are other decal options in the kit that are a lot more attractive than this one but […]


Academy 1/72 P-51B…

by Magnus Fridsell on January 25, 2013 in Aviation -- 7 Comments

…this one doesn’t really help the USAF against the Messerschmitts but it is still a Mustang 🙂 ! Academy kit with Cutting Edge decals. Metal finish was Vallejo (!), a bit fragile but still the best I have managed yet! […]
