Building, painting and finishing aircraft models of all scales.

1/48th Westland Lynx AH.7

This is the Airfix, 1/48th scale AH.7 Lynx. This was a superb kit, but it took me a long time to finish it because the fit tolerances were so tight, I spent a lot of time making adjustments to get the fuselage to fit around the interior cabin c[...]

Airfix 1/48 Spitfire Mk Vb

With this build, I continue my “love affair” with the Polish expatriate pilots of RAF 303 Sqdn (Poland) and their service to the U.K. during WWII. Following the Battle of Britain, and over time, the unit transitioned to various models of the Sp[...]

Hawker Hurricane Mk11c ,Revell 1/72. Egypt 1944

" I say old fruit, I seem to have run out of juice , I don't suppose you could jump on the old Camel chappie and pop back to Alex and let them know" My great friend and colleague Rob Booth has dipped his toes into our hobby for the first time i[...]

Rareplane 1/72 Republic P-43 Lancer

Rareplane's P-43 Lancer, my first vac-form build. This is an old vac-form kit released at 1972, single sheet with decent details. It was not a horrible build but did have some minor issues to deal with. My first plan was to use a resin engine an[...]

The 1/144 AMP B-2A Spirit is now complete!

I completed the AMP 1/144 B-2A Spirit Stealth Bomber. The kit comes with good details, has very good fit, and very good decals. This was ordered by a client who wanted it for a display in his office. The scheme he chose was the “Spirit of Califo[...]

Tank´s last breed…1/48 Focke-Wulf Ta152C V6

Built over 6 years ago. Whereas the "H" model was designed as a high-altitude fighter with elongated wings and a Jumo engine, the "C" model was intended as a normal fighter and fighterbomber with the standard 190 wings and a Daimler-Benz engine.[...]

AIRFIX 1:48 SPITFIRE MK.I (Kit Number A05115A)

I built this in tandem with the build I posted yesterday using the earlier and slightly easier to build kit. This is the other famous 57 OTU aircraft, LV⦿N, s/n AR212. I shamelessly copied from yesterdays article...Innards were painted with Tami[...]

This is the newish AMG Hawker Hart finished as an Irish Air Corps Hawker Hind. The Hind was an improved version of the Hart that featured a more powerful RR Kestrel engine, a tail wheel, and the cut down rear gunners position from the Hawker De[...]
