Wildcat revisited… Tamiya 1/48

by Tony Prince on February 9, 2017 · in Aviation — 23 Comments

This would be one of my earliest Tamiya kits; built, I think, around 1995. I recently read a magazine article by a fellow modeller about his problems with using the right colour for the topsides & the more I looked […]

Tamiya 1/48 Avro Lancaster PB150 of 625 Sqn RAF 1945

Some pics of my Tamiya 1/48 Lanc tastefully shot against the lurid backdrop of our back-bedroom! – Sorry about that but the finished model is so large it had to go somewhere uncluttered and it was still raining outside. I […]

Wasn’t going to post it, but…..

This is the Gavia 1/48 Westland Lysander. I hated it. Nothing fitted well, the wings to canopy fit was very hard and decals unusable. I used spares. Even photographing it was a nightmare. A random gust of wind blew it […]

Revell 1/32 Ju-88 A-1, Norway, 1940

by Gary Stevenson on February 8, 2017 · in Aviation — 10 Comments

This is my Tamiya Phantom in the early USAF gull gray & white colour scheme used until around 1966 when the SEA camo scheme came into use. I loved building this kit even though it was a few years ago […]

Another What-If? – Luftwaffe1946: After much drawn out fighting, the Germans finally capitulate. Leaving behind items such as this D0-335 much abused & repaired Arrow. Replaced wing & lower fin in case you hadn’t noticed! Have fun & prosper!

Hasegawa 1/48 Kyushu J7W1 Shinden (Greased Lightning?)
