Airfix P-40B in 1/48

by Tony Prince on March 30, 2017 in Aviation -- 18 Comments

Being a veteran of two Monogram P-40s, one by Trumpeter & another by Academy, I really looked forward to the Airfix offering. There were few issues & none that couldn’t be corrected easily, although the spinner nearly defeated me – […]

Tamiya 1/48 Bf-109E-3

by George Henderson on March 30, 2017 in Aviation -- 20 Comments

I started building this to be marked with the kit decals but a photo on the web blew me away. This is more of a study in interpreting B&W colors than being correct so this is my take right or […]

Hi Everyone… Today I finished up the Mitsubishi J2M in the colors of an actual Ki-61 that was captured by the U.S. Marines during WWII. I think it catches the spirit of the “What If” without going to overboard. Next […]

Tiny Hunter

by Scott Nelson on March 28, 2017 in Aviation -- 10 Comments

I think the Hawker Hunter is one of the most esthetically pleasing aircraft ever to fly. I’ve made Revell’s 1/32, 1/72, and, now 1/144 Hunters. I have to say I like this 1/144 kit the best. If I can find […]
