Completed Late-War Western Front Fighters Collection (1/48)

This has taken around two years to complete due to only having access to a workshop on an irregular basis. Each kit took just under a week.

German Fighters:
Focke-Wulf Fw 190A-8 Anton
Focke-Wulf Fw 190D-9 Dora
Messerschmitt Bf 109G-10 Gustav
Messerschmitt Me 262A-1 Schwalbe

American Fighters:
North American P-51D Mustang
Republic P-47M Thunderbolt

British Fighters:
Supermarine Spitfire Mk.XVI
Supermarine Spitfire Mk.XIV
Hawker Tempest Mk.V

Bonus Russian Fighter:
Yakovlev Yak-3

All the aircraft are in 1/48 scale and are primarily by Eduard and Tamiya, with Airfix supplying parts for the Spitfire XIV.

  6. Nice collection!

  7. You have a very appealing WW2 plane collection there Justin, kinda makes me envy. Are you planning expanding into bombers or reconnaissance planes ?

    • Thanks Pedro - at some point maybe but to be honest I'm limited for display space and 48 scale bombers tend to be large... The other thing is that ICM and Revell bombers tend to lack surface detail to match Tamiya or Eduard fighters in the same scale, and while I'm up for a riveting challenge - there are limits... 😉

  8. Thanks for the lovely comments all! 😀

  9. Lovely collection. I only wish I could go from open box to finished model in a week! Doesn't ever seem to happen for me...
