Airfix 1/72 Mustang P-51DGlamourous Glen III

A bit of a trial this one. My first attempt ended as a blob of plastic after attempting the butterfly stroke in a pool of cellulose thinners. 6 months later I came round to the second attempt. I used the Barracudacals Decal set for this [...]

Airfix 1/72 Messerschmitt Me262A-1A

Hi there, This kit was a part of the Airfix Dogfight Double but is not done in the box scheme. As a relatively new kit I thought it would be fairly easy but the fit of certain part, specifically the engine wing mounts was tricky. This [...]

ICM 1/72 Polikarpov U-2/PO-2VS

GasPatch Models 1/48 Me 163B Komet.

What a fantastic kit this is. Any issues were of my own making and that was only a slight misalignment of the Cannon Cartridge Ejector Chute which caused a little fit issue with the wings. Everything else was a great fit. Primed with [...]
