Kinetic HAWK 127 LIF.

This is my latest (completed) effort. It's the 1/32 Kinetic Hawk 100 series kit modified to a 76 squadron RAAF Hawk 127 LIF (Lead In Fighter trainer). Whilst there is nothing inherently wrong with the kit it is definitely not a 127 as the destru[...]

Lockheed Ventura Mk.II 1/48 Revell

My last build from "Holiday Battle" with my friend. Very nice kit, this is only oob, only masks and seat belts from Eduard. No.487 Squadron, Royal New Zealand Air Force Methwold, England, May 1943

A-10 Warthog 1:32, Trumpeter

I have just finished another kit for my friend. It is A-10 double seater in special what-if camouflage. The snake head in front is done by masking, it is not a decal. The kit is not easy going together and I had some troubles to reach at least a[...]

Now completed: Butcher bird over the Steppes

SE.5a Eduard 1:48

Hello, everyone. Here is my latest project, I was busy with for the last five months. I removed the stitches off the ribs (they were too heavy for my taste) and rescribed the fuselage door behind the cockpit. Wheels, guns, propeller and radiato[...]

1/48 Tamiya FW-190 A4, as Flown by Leutnant Eberhard Von Burath, Adjutant 1 Gruppe / JG 1

Staying hot on the heels of these FW-190 postings, I'll add another one of my recent builds... lets keep it rolling! This model was built as part of a four plane build that I did for the recent "Kasserine Pass" GB that was the brainchild of my[...]

Trumpeter 1/48 MiG-3 (early)

Couldn't find a lot about this aircraft other than what is on https://massimotessitori.altervista.org/sovietwarplanes/pages/mig3/german-capt/germig2.html There is also a photo of the aircraft here. The fit of the kit was pretty good with the exc[...]

1/48 Arii FW-190
