Recently, we had several mentions of the racing Mustangs: here, here and here, so I thought it is the right moment to pull out this from my archives. Here is the model of the most famous of them all, the […]

by Tom Cleaver on December 18, 2012 in Aviation -- 4 Comments

There is no pilot of World War I in any air force who more fits the mythology of the “Great Flying Ace of the Great War” than The Arizona Cowboy, Frank Luke. The working-class kid with no education around a […]

Hurricane for Christmas

by George Tufnail on December 18, 2012 in Aviation -- 3 Comments

This is a ten day wonder. It is the Airfix 1/48 scale kit, and took me about 14 hours total over 10 days. The personal markings are home made as is the aircraft ID. Under the tail is my brother-in-laws […]

by Merrill Anderson on December 16, 2012 in Aviation -- 5 Comments

Some more of my ‘paleomodeling’, the Blue Max Halberstadt. I have always liked the lines of the Halberstadt CL’s. The kit was a typical ‘limited production’ from a few years back, you had to make the parts go together. Covered […]

Eduard 1:48 SPAD S.XIII

by Maxim Bylkin on December 16, 2012 in Aviation -- 16 Comments

Model of dioramas, about which I have spoken. Almost from box assembly, said only the pilot. Perhaps the aircraft will be too yellow, my mistake, but had to paint in the evenings under the lamp. And so probably got the […]
