Black Knight…Eduard 1/48 Messerschmitt Bf109G-6/AS, 2./EJG2

#3/2020 My father hasn´t built one but two of the new Eduard G-6/AS at once. Like with the JG27 scheme also this was built oob. Added antenna wire with EZ Line and fishing line, brake lines with plastic rods and lead wire. Painted with with Tam[...]

Airwar over Austria…Eduard 1/48 Messerschmitt Bf109G-6/AS JG27

#2/2020 First 109 for the new season and first new Eduard G-6/AS. A troublefree build like all their new 109s. But the molded on pitot tube still looks off and like with their G-10 kits the elevator trim tabs are too small. The antenna mast has[...]

Persian Thunder…Kinetic 1/48 Northrop F-5A Freedom Fighter, Imperial Iranian Airforce

#1/2020 Let the new season begin! Kinetic kit, needs some filler, a molding issue appeared on the left side of the tail fin in the area of the leading edge. The tip tanks are one piece parts and molded both the same way, to say both for one s[...]

Carpathian Eagle…Hasegawa 1/48 Hawker Hurricane Mk.I Romanian Airforce

Built last year. Hasegawa Romanian Hurricane kit, Eduard seatbelts, in the kit missing early style prop and spinner taken from the new Airfix Hurricane I, missing 5-spoke wheels from ultracast, missing early style antenna mast from the spares bo[...]

Freezin´Wulf…Eduard 1/48 Focke-Wulf Fw190A-4 “Greenheart”

Built in 2017. When Eduard released the new genetration 190, my dad had to build one. Finally also the first model of our Austrian WW2 leading ace Nowotny. The kit is definitely to recommend. Fit and engineering are far better then with Eduard´s[...]

White Turkey…Hobby Boss 1/48 Grumman TBM-1C Avenger ASW US Navy

Built in 2016. Initially my dad wanted to build a RN Mk.I with the Hobby Boss kit. After examining the kit we found out that the intended version wasn´t possible oob, no bubble side windows, no observer seat behind the pilot, no cowl gun. So, ch[...]

Desert Storm…Hasegawa 1/48 McDonnell Douglas AV-8B Harrier II, VMA-231 USMC

Built in 2018. Another of my dad´s excursions to the modern world. Hasegawa kit, not one of their best, some fit issues, steps and gaps. Bought the kit second hand from a fellow modeller, sadly the decals weren´t really usable anymore so my fath[...]

Vietnam War…Trumpeter 1/48 North American F-100D Super Sabre 481st TFS USAF

Built in 2018. One of my dad´s excursions to the post WW2 era. Like all Trumpeter kits, also this one has dimensional and shape issues, but it looks like a Super Sabre. Super Scale (Squadron) decals, painted with Tamiya XF-16 Aluminium, AGM-12 r[...]

British Style…Tamiya 1/48 North American P-51B Mustang 334th FS USAAF

Built in 2018. Tamiya Mustang Mk.III kit, main markings are from Kits World Decals, the rest from Aeromaster and the kit. Vallejo Metal Color Aluminium for the NMF, Gunze and Tamiya acrylics for the rest, brass wire for the whip antenna. To get [...]

Dutch Push´n´Pull…RS Models 1/48 Fokker D-XXIII

Built in 2018. A typical shortrun kit with all its disadvantages, also the plastic didn´t respond good to the plastic glue, for example the left tail boom broke off two times, after the model was painted. Gunze and Tamiya acrylics used, sadly ha[...]
