Airwar over Austria…1/48 Messerschmitt Bf109G-6, 1./JG300

This is the "faulty" first edition Eduard kit, built in 2015. Lifelike decals were used. On August 24th 1944, Unteroffizier Hermann Berdelmann, serving with 1. Staffel JG300, took off to engage a bunch of 15th AF Liberators, coming from Italy a[...]

Monogram/Revell F-101

Next up on my model desk is the Monogram/Revell F-101B (1/48). I have been wanting to build it to go with the RF-101C in my office. I have seen that many of you have built it on the site here and their are many talented modelers out there, you g[...]

Eduard 1/48 Spitfire Vb

The Airplane: Late in 1940, the RAF believed the appearance of the pressurized Junkers Ju 86P over Britain would signal the start of a high altitude bombing offensive by the Luftwaffe. The Air Ministry called for development of a pressurized Sp[...]

Eduard’s Mirage III CZ SAAF 1982 in 1:48

My first post here on Imodeler! Just a few pics of this lovely kit. It is Eduard's  Mirage III CZ SAAF 1982 in 1:48. I used the Profipack version and finished it in the kit decals for nr. 800 2 Eskader/ 2 Squadron of the SAAF Waterkloof 1982. [...]

Hawk 1/72 Spitfire Mk. 22 converted into a Mk. XIV

This is a kit bash of the old Hawk kit of their Spitfire Mk. 22 and using Heller's Spitfire Mk. XVI wings, interior and landing gears. The Hawk kit is an old kit from 1967 labeled as a Spitfire Mk. 22 but it is actually the prototype of the Mk. [...]

Howard Squire’s Spitfire Mk Ia

For the longest time I was keen on buying some of the British specialty magazines devoted to aviation and would follow their stories on the restoration of rare World War II aircraft. Of particular interest was the recovery and restoration of Ho[...]

Come on! Share your disasters.

I have a Revell 1/32 Ju-88 which I was rather pleased with as part of my Malta 1942 collection. I had to hunt for this kit on e-bay, enjoyed building it. Now the canopy wasn't perfect but it was ok. Last month I foolishly dusted some models. Ine[...]

Smer 1/72 P-40k

This is SMER's P-40K, I started this build while still working on my first build last year (Revell P-40E) hoping to have a quick build but that did not happen. This kit fought me a bit but this was probably more me than the kit. The wing to body[...]

Learning to fly fast…1/48 Messerschmitt Bf109G-14, KG(J)54(27)/KG(J)6

When German bomber pilots converted to the 262, they started to train on old trainers and biplanes, then usually moved on to 109s before they got to fly the Schwalbe. Partly these 109s were also used for combat with the KG(J)s. Sadly there is on[...]
