1/48 p-51b

This is an Accurate Miniatures P-51B that has been patiently waiting in my stash to be built for over 20 years. I have to confess that I’m not a huge Mustang fan, but have collected a few of the new Airfix and Eduard “D” models to add to the co[...]

Gloster Gladiator Mk.I Hellenic Air Force 1938

It's an 1/48 Roden kit. It is a very good kit with the exelent fit, enough detail for anyone who wants to make a OOB. On the contrary, the decals had a big problem, since they were dissolved in water. Fortunately from the beginning I had the int[...]

Eduard 1/48 F6F-3

In march 1945 the U.S. Navy had to rein in production of the Hellcat at Grumman's busy New York facility as production numbers reached a staggering 600 per month. All together a total of 12,275 Hellcats were produced in just over two years! This[...]

Myasishchev M-50 Bounder, Anigrand 1/144

What **** is that. well it’s a WV-1E.

This is my take on the sole WV-2E[EC-121L] an experimental aircraft with probably the first to use a rotating radome, later seen on the E-2 and E-3 AWAC. it housed an APS-82 radar, a program that eventually canceled. It first flew in 1956. Submi[...]

Vengeance! Barber’s P-38G Lightning

This is my interpretation of the P-38G flown by Col. Rex T. Barber during Operation Vengeance, the epic mission to intercept Admiral Yamamoto aboard his punctual Betty. That story has been well told elsewhere, and the history of the plane has be[...]

FM-1 Wildcat HobbyBoss 1/48

Hello Everyone! This is my second completed kit of the year of many more to come. I knew that the hobbyboss is quite a good kit, I found it at a really good price in a hobbyshop and I couldn't resist. I detailed the cockpit with some copper wir[...]

Douglas SBD-2

This is the Academy boxing of the Accurate Miniatures kit. I bought it second-hand for my wife to give me for Christmas in 2018 and I couldn't wait to start it straight away. It only took me about three months elapsed time to finish, which is [...]
