Wing modeller, father of 4 and a Luftwaffe enthusiast…all my hobbies in no particular order

Teeth & Fang GB still going

As most of you are aware the Teeth & Fang Group Build has been going on since June 1st and schedule to end at New Years Eve. We’ve got so far 7 active builds, 2 of them already finished, but many more people joined with some exciting ideas f[...]

Diamond shape Fock-Wulf 190 A-4

My last build is this weekend box of Eduard Fw190 A-4. Not that I (we) don’t have a fair share of this plane lately but I just couldn’t resist this unique camouflage pattern. In fact there were some 109 E that sported this kind of “netting” camo[...]

Dragon Ju 88 G-6: The Berlin Effect

By chance, or should I say, by Google app I managed to retrieve some long lost photos of the Junkers 88 nightfighter I did back in early 2013 or so. This kit had a resin nose from Quickboost in order to replicate one of the few “Berlin” radar do[...]

New P-38 from Tamiya

Teeth & Fang GB

I want to welcome everyone to participate in this new GB focusing models adorned with any sort of teeth and mouth. The main goal is depicting model planes, tanks, boats or any other weapon that sported any sort of animal mouth to strike fear on [...]

Hasegawa Fw.190 A-5: giving a long time shelf queen new robes

Few months ago I purchased a decal sheet from a new company named Exito Decals, simply because it had a trio of nice, never before presented in decal form (as far as I know) FW.190s. One of them, Yellow 5, was a one of a kind eastern front war m[...]

Bump – Group Build idea: Teeth & Fangs

Ok, time for a bump around this GB idea Time lapse suggestion: June 1st - 31st December, any scales, all genres Any one who miss the first post and finds this idea interesting enough to join please say so, there are so many subjects that can f[...]

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)
