To my mind, the Eduard 1/48 Camel is the best kit of this important airplane available. I haven't seen it available in recent years, but those who are interested in obtaining a kit might drop me a line because I have a local hobby shop that act[...]
Here some Turkish fighters were in service during WWII. I was always interested in WWII fighters and when I discovered many famous fighters had in service under star and crescent, I found myself in plastic model world starting late 80's. Beg[...]
This cross breed Spitfire model was built in 2011. It is 1/48 Tamiya Spitfire MkVb mated with Fusion DB605 conversion set. This aircraft (Spitfire MkVb serial EN850 / NX-X) flown by P/O Bernard Scheidhauer was captured in Jersey island (between[...]
