Here is a double post for you all today. First the Eduard Spitfire VIII, this is simply a superb kit, an utter joy to build and one of my favourite kits so far this year. The same cant be said about the second build, the Trumpeter Defiant, also [...]
With the new issue of Airfix Model World Magazine now out, I can post some photos of the all new Airfix 1:48 scale Mustang. This is a superb kit, the detail is excellent, some very clever engineering involved too to get nice a seamless radiator [...]
