Building, painting and finishing aircraft models of all scales.

Spitfire FR.Mk.XIVe, 451 Squadron, RAAF.

Obviously a popular subject, judging by earlier postings. I had earmarked the two Xtradecals offerings some time before the kit's release, hoping that a pleasant surprise was not too far away. Maybe it is not too much to hope that Airfix might b[...]

Roden 1/48 Gladiator I

By the early 1930s, it was apparent to any aircraft designer that the day of the biplane was over: the inherent drag of the layout could not be overcome by any increase in performance, and the layout prevented the airplane from carrying a truly [...]

Lovely, not “ugly”, bird

Hello, guys! I have rarely built post-war aircrafts, civil or military. This is the first post-war Royal Navy bird for me. I never believe the reputation that Fairey Gannet is one of the ugliest planes of the world. Although maybe not beautifu[...]

1/48 Me 210/Ca-1. Hungary, Summer 1944

There are two kits used in this project, Monogram Me 410 kit and Planes resin conversion set. The Planes set comprises of wings, nacelles, props and painting masks. They are of high quality but the fitting of the nacelles to the wing was tricky[...]

Another one Spitfire FR Mk.XIV (Airfix 1/48)

I know, I know, but I just can't stop building Spitfires, and it's another one in the headlines from my side – a new Airfix FR Mk.XIV. I was waiting for this kit to appear in my local hobby shop, and here is the result. Spitfires are my most fre[...]

1/48 Spitfire FR. XIVe

This is my second crack at the new Airfix kit. This one represents an Indian Air Force example assigned to the training center at Ambala, India in 1945. The internet is full of excellent reference photos for these low back Griffon engined Sp[...]

Monogram 1/48 Consolidated B-24D Liberator “Moby Dick”

Hello! I present a new ... although no, the old one, the model from Monogram is the B-24 Liberator. Although the model is 36 years old, but she looks pretty good, she got together well. I had to suffer a little with decals. And in general, if y[...]

Eduard 1/48 Messerschmitt Bf 109 F-2

This aircraft was piloted by Uffz. Peter Bremer of 2./JG54, Autumn 1941. The standard 74/75 upper camouflage was modified by an application of 70/02/79 over the original paint to improve its camouflage for Autumn. I did the same painting seque[...]
