Italeri/Hasegawa Mc 205 Veltro

Hello, fellas! Hope you all are alright and safe during this difficult period. I’ve been working from home for 7 weeks now, just a little touch of cabin fever - cured with a daily cold beer and some modeling! Here is my attempt at Hasegawa’s[...]

Airfix 1/48 Spitfire Mk 22

Hello, fellas. Hope you are all safe and having a good time buiding models at home! This kit has been reviewed several times. It was great when it came out (1996, IIRC), but has since been surpassed by Airfix’s new releases. The cockpit is ver[...]

First completion of the year: Tamiya’s 109 G-6

Salute, gentlemen! And a great new year to all of you! I just finished Tamiya’s 1/48 109 G-6, and what a great kit it is. I would guess no other manufacturer could pull off such “gimmicks” as the interchangeable exposed engine/closed cowling as[...]

Academy’s “pregnant cat”, a last minute 2019 completion!

Hello, fellas! This is Academy’s infamous “pregnant cat” I finished yesterday in true “almost OOB” fashion. The interior was dressed up with some Eduard PE bits, as well as Master barrels for the .50 machine guns. I first thought of not using [...]

Hasegawa 1/48 Bf-109 E – and a cautionary tale about decals…

Hello, fellas! With this I clean the slate of my “back catalog” of recent builds, which are at an all time low rate of production due to various life chores... This kit has a special place in my heart, being the first I built when I took back [...]

Tamiya 1/48 Mustang

Hello, fellas! This is the well known Tamiya Mustang finished in the “clown suit” markings - no disrespect meant to the men who flew and mantained it, it is just that the flamboyant pattern applied to the cowling reminded me of a clown outfit![...]

Arii Spitfire Mk VIII 1/48

Hello, fellas! This kit was bought a few years ago from a vendor’s table at a local modeling meeting for what seemed a bargain: it came with Squadron vac canopies, Waldron cockpit placards and details and an Airwaves PE set. Upon closer examina[...]

Airfix Spitfire PR XIX, 1/48

Hello, fellas! This is my attempt at Airfix’s 1/48 Spitfire PR XIX. Some time ago I decided to try and add the most Spitfires variants possible to my collection, which stands at a modest 8 kits build by now, and I sure am thankful to Airfix fo[...]

Hasegawa/Italeri Mustang 1/48

Hello, felllas. This is my attempt at Hasegawa’s 1/48 Mustang. Boxed by Italeri, it comes with an attractive decal sheet depicting 4 RAF Mustangs, and being a s****r for a sharkmouth aircraft, that is the one I chose. There is no way a P-51 do[...]

Zvezda Bf-109 F4

Hey there, fellas. This is my attempt at Zveda’s 1/48 F4. The kit is very detailed and has a lot of options, but the build can be a little finnicky with all the engine parts. I have mixed feelings about kits with such options: it seems like a w[...]
