Douglas Bader Hurricane, 1/32

This is Bader’s second Hurricane I when he commanded 242 Squadron during the Battle of Britain. PCM 1/32 kit. OOB, but modified since (as usual) the Caruana drawings left a bit to be desired in the accuracy department. Had the […]

This is a resin model of the Ukrainian company Rest Models, now – a rarity. In the assembly, there were no problems, in the drawings bear too well. As the prototype was selected fighter squadron Dzerzhinsky, Moscow, 1932. Painted the […]

Probably one of the most recognizeable airplanes in history. Done back in 2004 when the kit first came out, using the Cutting Edge decal sheet. Lots of good history in the sheet, I think this is from the research the […]

Roden 1/32 Nieuport 28

by Tom Cleaver on December 12, 2012 · in Aviation

Done a few years ago when it first came out. Markings are for Eddie Rickenbacker’s airplane. A nice, simple kit without a lot of rigging, good for someone just starting in the WW1 genre. To me the Nieuport 28 is […]

MPC Zinger Corvette

by George Tufnail on December 11, 2012 · in Automotive

Every now and then I like to unwind with bit of fun, and these little kits really fit the bill. I strip the chrome so I can clean up the seam lines, then replace it with Alclad. The body is […]
