Into all things 1/48 WW2. Aircraft, dios, armour etc. favourite topics are, Luftwaffe, RAAF , Dutch airforce, BoB, and anything that flies from around 1925-1946 essentially. 🙂

1/48 Hasegawa Spitfire MkIXc French markings. Germany April 1945

Hope you like. I love something a little different in a Spitfire. Love the yellow tail in particular. I used 1/48 Montex masks for the markings, and used spare decals for thé roundels. Painted the tail and all yellow areas with tamiya tape. La[...]

My 1/48 Airfix Spitfire F Mk-22

This is one of the nicest kits I've ever built. Went together like a dream. Lots of fun, and yet another addition to my growing Spitfire collection. You can never have too many.

My Supermarine Walrus 1/48 Classic airframes

Hope you like. My first real go at rigging. Not counting Tamiya's Swordfish rigging kit parts that came with it. It was fun. :) For some reason, the last two pics are upside down.... No idea why. Lol.

1/48 Hasegawa Spitfire MkIXe Egyptian markings. 1948

HI all, hope you like my latest. I built it cause a friend's daughter said she liked my MkVB trop colours, but hated the filter. She's a 10 yr old going on 35...lol. So I built this with her in mind, and cause I've always loved these marking[...]

My 1/48 Airfix Spitfire FR XIX which I won here on imodeler. :)

Thank you Imodeler for this kit. I loved building it, and though some may say this colour scheme is a bit boring, I love it. Its a shame you can't see all the cameras etc in the fuselage. I could have opened the camera doors, but didn't want t[...]

Tamiya 1/48 Spitfire MkVB

My tribute to the Polish pilots of the war. Sqdn Leader Jan Zumbach". 303 Sqdn RAF September 1942 Techmod decals which are very thin and will tear if you're not careful, but go on beautifully. I loved this build. Hope you like, Paul.

Thank you Imodeler. Prize arrived today.

A big big thank you. I have always wanted to do this kit, so am very grateful. Will start this one after my current build. Call me dull, but I love the box art version. Will post when completed. Thank you so much, Paul in Brisbane Australia.

For the Battle of France / Battle of Britain topic. Classic Airframes 1/48

Hi all, for the BoF/BoB. 1/48 CA Boultan Paul Defiant. I loved building this kit. Lots of fun even with the extra workload of a limited run kit. It went together very nicely. Not many pics sorry. But hope you like anyway. Paul.

Tamiya Spitfire MkVB Trop 1/48

HI all, here's my latest. Major Levine's Spitfire VB. Hope you like. Decal sheet said it was a VC, but upon doing research and talking with others, I was happy to see it was in fact a VB. No need for a new VC wing. ;) It's heavily weathered, [...]

My wife is the greatest… :) Birthday presents for my 45th.

Thank you Julie. Looking inside, the decals for the Nightfighter national markings are terrible. But the Day bomber is fine. Luckily, I can use the latters for the Nightfighter, cause they are the same, and I am doing a Dutch day bomber versio[...]
