F-16 Group Build

Always looking for interesting topics to start a new group, I come across the F-16. The prototype was rolled out in December 1973, and first flight was the unintentional one in 1974 on January 20th with the official one following February [...]

Converting a Bf 109 to a Ha-1109

The starting point is the SBS-model resin conversion kit mentioned elsewhere on iModeler. It is designed to use Tamiyas new Bf109G-6. Instead of filling in a lot of words here, might I interest you with a link to the full build over in [...]

Messerschmitt Bf109 G-6 WNr 161742, Slowak, Eduard 1/48

I do know this Eduard kit has been presented here before, but in order to present my 109's I have chosen to add it here too. I have used the kit decals even though I do realise they are slightly wrong with too fat lines. I opened the vent [...]
