1/48 Mauve P-40M RNZAF

Finished this kit couple of months ago and don’t know why I hadn’t posted it. Spent some time looking for a P-40M kit, Mauve is belly up, and the Eduard and Hasegawa versions seem to be out of production right […]

Since I can’t build for awhile while getting unpacked a Ventura…..

VPB 150 built from the newish 1/48 Revell kit. I really enjoyed the build EXCEPT for the bomb bay doors! Other than that though great fit, a few mistakes on my part here and there. I bought aftermarket props and […]
