Yep this is the very Airfix 1:48 Spitfire Vb that I won here at iM around two years ago, and only just got around to putting-together… …now I cannot say I enjoyed the build, and I know that sounds ungrateful […]

by Stan Traas on May 23, 2017 in Aviation -- 4 Comments

Finished this (Whoops- forgot to do the exhaust stains! 🙁 ) just before the Emil, but missed taking pics. I really wondered about the “Taifun” logo being present on top of the camouflage, but found a photo (hopefully not re-touched) […]

Hello again. Last of the project, basically with all the same changes and improvements than the previous two but with the needed changes to represent a DVa. Main difference is that the finishing was done mainly with decals (the other […]

Hawker Sea Fury FB.11 REAF (1:48, AMG)

by Martin Dytrych on May 1, 2017 in Aviation -- 14 Comments

Here is my latest build, Hawker Sea Fury in Royal Egypt Air Force service. Honestly, this was mentioned as “build just for fun and display case”. Even if I wanted, this kit is not good enough for any competition. Too […]
