1/48 Mosquito Mk IV Nightfighter

This is my first, fully airbrushed plane where I airbrushed the interior and the exterior of the plane. The only thing I did not airbrush was the figures inside (which one fell down somehow :/ ). I made a few […]

Continuing the iModeler Mustang theme I present my Tamiya P-51B, with a Verlinden cockpit and a set of Aeromaster decals added. This build is from the late 90s and was the first project where I used a double-action airbrush for […]
