Rhodesian Spitfire F.22

by John Healy on December 8, 2012 · in Aviation — 1 Comment

My latest Spitfire. It’s an Airfix 1/48 kit. Completed about a month ago using Humbrol enamels and an old Eaglestrike sheet for the Rhodesian markings. I never get tired of Spitfires!

This is one of my oldest Spitfires. It is a 1/48 Hobbycraft kit constructed in 1991. It was made from the original boxing that came with really bad ETO decals. I clipped the wings, opened the canopy and replaced the […]

1/72 Academy F/A-18C

by Geoffrey Abreu on December 8, 2012 · in Uncategorized — 4 Comments

This is the Academy 1/72 F/A-18C. I built this OOB with the exception of the ejection seat which I believe was from Quickboost. I painted it with Model Master enamels and the decals are from MAW and were excellent. A […]

Special Hobby Reggiane 2002

by Bryan W. Bernart on December 7, 2012 · in Aviation — 2 Comments

Another 1/48 offering with an interesting history if you’re into the obscure and obsolete. Not bad to build, an improvement over some of their other kits. Not as interesting as some of the other Italian camo schemes, but it grew […]
