Airfix Bf-109E1 (converted from E3 kit)

Hello, This is another Emil from my workbench. I converted a E3 to an E1 by removing the ammo bulges under the wings and recessing new hatches. The canopy is from spare parts, cause Airfix is providing the E4 - E7 canopy only. The decals are fro[...]

Airfix 1/48 Curtiss Tomahawk II

With war clouds on the sky in 1938, the Army Air Corps determined it needed a fighter with better performance than the P-36. Curtiss had developed a design strategy stretching back to the P-1 if stretching an airframe as far as possible, and the[...]

1/32 Tamiya Mosquito

Progress has been slow on this and not because it's a difficult kit to build. We're fostering a 6 month old Teacup Yorkshire Terrier who has taken up a lot of time so modeling has temporarily taken a back seat. Anyway, Ihave done a little work o[...]

Focke-Wulf 190A-9, 1945

Yet another oldie! This is Otaki's 1/48 FW-190A-8 that I originally started as just a 'paint mule' to try out a paint mix. One thing lead to another and, well, here you are. I added details to the cockpit, belts from aluminum tape and solde[...]

Matchbox B-17G: Fools Rush In Where Wise Men Fear To Tread

Boeing P-26s of the 17th Pursuit Group (1/32 Hasegawa)

Billed for publicity purposes as the “revolutionary Boeing fighter,” the Boeing P-26A was a mixture of old and new. The first all-metal monoplane fighter to serve with the Air Corps, it was also the last USAAC fighter with externally-braced wing[...]

Würger sporting serpents

Hello guys! The brand name Airfix is a part of my memory of youth together with its mold color light blue. I bought quite a few kits of the brand, mainly of Luftwaffe, but none were completed.... So, this is virtually the first Airfix that I fin[...]

T-28 Trojan

This is not my build. I saw this plane in a modelshow in france. It was my favorite from the whole contest. I would like to present to you this extra ordinary build from an unknown modeller. It is a 1/32 scale T-28 Trojan. The kit is from tamiya[...]
