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 […]

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 […]

One of my older builds from the mid 90’s. I started building my current stash back in the early 90’s. Living in the East Coast I started picking up more kits to bring back with me when I returned home […]
