Hasegawa 1:32 Scale, Curtiss P-40N “Warhawk”

I can’t speak for all of us on here, but there is just something about the Curtiss P-40 that just make it one of my favorite aircraft. Does not matter which type, or which scheme, it just is what it […]

by Tony Prince on March 5, 2013 in Aviation -- 6 Comments

Since I belong to the NTAA Club (never throw anything away), I decided to kitbash a Spitfire XIVc a couple of years ago. There are bits of around 5 or 6 different kits in this model which amazingly all fitted […]

1/48 Hasegawa Bf-109F-4B

by Brian Riedel on March 5, 2013 in Aviation -- 4 Comments

Howdy, I built this almost out of the box a few years ago. I added etched seatbelts, decals from MSAP for a Me-109F4-B of Frank Liesendahl of JG 2. The ETC 500 bomb rack and bomb are from a Hobbycraft […]

1:32 Scale Trumpeter, Grumman TBF-1C, “Avenger”

This is one of those kits that, after you build it, the thought of, “What the hell am I gonna do with this?” It’s a big model. I have to say though, even though Trumpeter has a reputation for fit […]

Tamiya, 1:48 scale Heinkel He-219A-7 “Uhu”

One of my later efforts, Tamiya’s 1:48 scale Heinkel He-219. A really nice model and a good build. Good detail inside and out, and most importantly, the fit was excellent so that negated a WHOLE lot of sanding. The cockpit […]

Finemolds 1:48 scale Nakajima, Ki-43 III Ko, ‘Hayabusa’, (Oscar)

The Ki-43 has long been one of my favorite Japanese aircraft of the Second World War. Over the years I have built many in pretty much every scale they have been produced in. My favorite, has to be Nichimo’s Ki-43 […]

Well, things on the building front have been quiet recently, so here’s another older build. This is a 1/32 Hasegawa Me-109G-6, finished as one of Erich Hartmann’s aircraft. If I remember right, the decals are Eagle Strike.
