Again another Me109……:
This was a little testbed project I did in 2017. On the one hand, I once inherited some of these hemispherical wooden bases and on the other hand, I always wanted to show this Me109 in flight. I was happy [...]
A technique using a child´s white glue for hard edge masking.
The glue was applied using its own bottle fine tip.
This is another one that's been hiding away in the shed. It's the Academy kit OOB, it's a great build. If memory serves, this is the initial release, before all the up armouring of the Warriors began. I remember seeing some of the trial Warriors[...]

Another nice Airfix kit completed. This is a very well engineered kit that essentially fell together. The only finicky issue was that the propeller/shaft assembly wouldn't seat fully in the engine until I filed out the opening some. This was [...]
Here is my humble first attempt at a vignette. This is the 1/72 Italeri Corsair, which due to the simple nature of the kit led me to want to do something else with it. I tried to portray a bird that had been hit but was able to l[...]
