While I mostly model WW II aircraft, I will make any model that strikes my fancy.
Another model completed during the Great Hunkering Down, the Eduard 1/72 Spitfire Mk. VIII. This is my first 1/72 Eduard Spit and as has been said by many before, these kits are great! I will definitely do more.
My recently completed Monogram F4b-4 with Mark’s Models and Toys EZ Rigging, decals, and resin cockpit.
