Hans Ulrich Rudel´s Junkers Ju 87G-2

My first proper Ju 87, it´s the Hasegawa Ju 87G-2 in 1:48. Although it´s not a proper G-2 (it has the B wings), I did enjoy building it. Care must be taken when attaching the fuselage/wings, because there´ll be a step if left untreated. The best[...]

Hasegawa 1:48 J7W1 Shinden

And my last post here for the day, the Hasegawa J7W1 Shinden. This one is finished in fictional markings for an aircraft flown by Kaneyoshi Muto, a Japanese fighter ace who´s been credited with 35 kills, 4 of them being B-29. I advice to all wh[...]

Italeri/Hasegawa 1:48 P-51D “Glamorous Glen III”

I´m a bit behind on my posting. I finished this one yesterday, the Italeri rebox of the Hasegawa P-51D. I used a 25 year old Repliscale decal sheet for Chuch Yeager´s markings, whose only fault is the lack of the second "Glamorous Glenn III" de[...]

Revell 4166 1/72 Me 262A-1a

This kit was the my first successfully done Me 262 in 72nd, the other two (also by Revell), were thrown to the garbage after I couldn´t stand seeing them with their noses melted by the glue I had use for the nose weights.

Focke Wulf Fw 190A-8 1/48 Hasegawa

Painted as Ernst Schröder´s aircraft. Decals were a bit brittle, and any damage was touched up with red paint.

Eduard Bf 109G-14

Fun to build, decals were really sticky.

Revell 1:72 Horten Ho 229

My latest kit. It was fun because I was able to have a go again at the desert camouflage, this time using the correct RLM 80 Olive Green colour over the RLM 79. The canopy was the worst fitting part of the kit, leaving a huge gap at the front.

Tamiya 1:48 RAF Mustang Mk.III

I had originally planned to build the kit´s clone, ICM/Revell´s Mustang Mk.III, but after getting frustrated with the warped fuselage halves, I decided to get the real thing. The Tamiya kit was a pleasure to build, everything fitted perfectly. I[...]

Revell 1:72 Arado Ar 555

Pleasant build, which was ruined by the weights getting lose inside the aircraft. I´ll superglue them next time. The aircraft here is based in North Africa, 1948, and flies for I/KG 7 "Afrika."

Ta 152H-1 Revell 1:72

This was a model I wanted to build for some time, and finally got the chance to buy it while I was at Amsterdam. General fit was good, except in the wing/fuselage area, where there were gaps. The tailband was the worst of the decals, since it is[...]
