As I recall, the Astrokit resin C.200s first appeared in 1995. I did this one then, then about 5 years later I stripped it and repainted it with better decals. This is a C.200 from the 356th Squadriglia of the Italian Corpo d'Expeditizione in [...]
Finally got this done. This is #3 of a same kit build (the other 2 are already posted) that was supposed to be a break from "Advanced Modelers Syndrome" Even though it is box stock, including the pilot instead of belts, it fought me all the way.[...]
So you sit down ,open the box and tell yourself that you're really going to take the time and produce a museum quality piece with this one. Maybe next time. Had some warped plastic with this one, some paint issues and some decals that wanted to [...]
I've build this kit a year ago.
The kit was not an easy build....... the instructions were in JAPANESE!
Painted with Tamiya acrylics IJN Green, IJN Grey, Yellow with a touch of red for IFF and lines on prop. The brown colour of the prop is Reve[...]

Had a hell of a job on the red "line" on the fuselage sides.
Want to build [...]

This is the Hobbycraft Seafury,built mostly OOB except for the decals which are aftermarket from Hannants in the U.K. as I didn't fancy trying to paint the black and yellow Suez conflict markings that the kit decals require,I know my limitations[...]
This is my Classic Airframes Wyvern (anyone know what a Wyvern is?) and one of my favourites,it certainly is an ungainly looking bird but I love that huge contra-rotating prop set up.This is the only Classic airframes kit I have built and consid[...]
Here's my version of Tamiya's 1/48 F4U-1 'birdcage' Corsair, finished in the nondescript markings of a Marine squadron based in the Solomons in 1943.
This build was almost straight 'out-of-the-box' - the only things added were seat belts, and s[...]
