Phoney War Emil

Airfix 109 E-1, made some 2 years ago. Thought I'd share with you. Kit has some AM stuff (Pavla resin, but that rudder is poorly shaped) and Lifelike decals (awesome)

Group Build idea : Teeth & Fangs

Black shark: Airfix Defiant

Now completed: Butcher bird over the Steppes

Almost completed: Butcher over the Steppes

Inspired by a recent Iron Works from @lgardner, the thought of painting free hand one of those green/brown schemes the german fighters used on the east front during the warm months made me get the brand new 190 A-5 from Eduard. The review Tom Cl[...]

The Japanese Nightfighter: Gekko Late Production 1/48

Hello again, Finished her today after a long battle with minor details and my own faults. Trying to get a less boring, monochromatic all green Jap plane was my challenge, that and cutting my stash by building long time stored kits. The build p[...]
