Pilot and aviation obsessive. Have loved model making all my life, and delighted to have found this site with so many like minded and talented folks showing off their builds!

264 Squadron Boulton-Paul Defiant in 1/48 (Battle of Britain day scheme)

Hi all, This is my lash up of the relatively new tool Airfix quarter scale Defiant. Tried a heavy post-shade then comprehensive highlighting coat technique with freehand camo. All feedback welcome as ever! :-) Full build video here:

Messerschmitt Bf 109E-4 in 1/48 from Eduard

I've been putting this kit off for a while until I felt calm enough to do the freehand mottling scheme required by these early Emils. I reckon she looks great next to the recent Battle of Britain Spitfire by Tamiya...reminds one just how small[...]

‘Rasberry Ripple’ ETPS Hawker Hunter in 1/48 (Academy)

Hi all, Had a crack at the limited edition Academy 1/48th scale Hawker Hunter release over the weekend... didn't really like the schemes out of the box and have been wanting to do an Empire Test Pilot School (ETPS) 'Rasberry Ripple' scheme on a[...]

Happy New Year, Happy New Tool Spitfire! Tamiya’s new Mk.Ia built…

A new Spitfire for the New Year! I'm sure many of you have been looking at Tamiya's new release and new tool Supermarine Spitfire Mk.1 in 1:48 scale. Here follows my two cents having built it over the last few days of the Christmas break: Thi[...]

Dassault Mirage IIIC from Eduard 1/48 Scale Kit

Christmas break build here - an Eduard weekend edition (lol, took much longer than that!) Mirage IIIC kit with the very eye-catching early Armee de l'Air scheme. Had some serious fit issues requiring a lot of filler, sanding and fuselage warpi[...]

North Vietnamese Mig-21PF in 1/48 Scale from Eduard kit

This is from a little while back - was my first attempt at Natural Metal Finish work with Alclads... It's Eduard's Profipack series 1/48 scale Mikoyan-Gurevich Mig-21PF in North Vietnamese Air Force markings. Used Alclad Airframe Aluminium on[...]

Big Beautiful Doll – P-51D Mustang in 1/48

This is a build of Col John Landers' famous 'Big Beautful Doll' with a bit of a twist - at the end of World War 2 he became commander of the 361st Fighter Group which had yellow noses and medium blue trim instead of the 78th Fighter Group's more[...]

Mitsubishi F-2A – Japan’s take on the F-16

Hi all! This is one I did a little while back - the Japanese Air Self Defense Forces (JASDF) Mitsubishi F-2A from Hasegawa. It's a very nice kit and much like Israeli F-15s and F-16s offers a nice colourful alternative to USAF ghost grey scheme[...]

Hans Jochaim Marseille’s Messerschmitt Bf 109F-4 in 1/48

Messerschmitt Bf 109F-4 'Yellow 14' as flown by top scoring Luftwaffe ace Hans Jochaim Marseille in the Western Desert in 1941, who would go on to achieve 158 kills including a still unequalled 16 in a single day (all confirmed in allied records[...]

D-Day Spifire Mk.IXc (Late Version) in 1/48 by Eduard

Because who doesn't love a Spitfire? As always, a really lovely kit from Eduard's ProfiPack 1/48 scale warbird series. I figured it had been too long since I made a good old Spitfire and had never done one with invasion stripes so chose this s[...]
