Academy (Easy kit) 1/144th SU-25 Frogfoot

The SU-25 Frogfoot is the Russian equivalent of the USAF A-10. It's not graceful looking, but is pretty much "purpose built". I guess that's what has always attracted me to it. In this particular case, I had little choice but to build it. [...]

Airfix Seafire F.R.47 with Cooper Details upgrade

The Seafire F.R.47 was the last of the line that began in 1935 with K5054, the Spitfire prototype. It was twice the weight of the original, with two and a half times the power and an additional 100mph in top speed, not to mention a cannon armam[...]

Seafire F.45 – Aeroclub conversion of Airfix kit

Throughout the development of the carrier-based Sea Spitfire, which was known as the Seafire, developments in the land-based series of fighters were reflected in approximate naval equivalents. The first of the Griffon-powered Seafires was the M[...]

Hasegawa 1/32 J2M3 Raiden

Supermarine Seafire Mk47 WW2 1939-1947

With the war in Europe now over and in a world where nuclear technology has never been developed the war against Japan rumbles on, the British government keen to reduce some of its crippling debt and in a bit of uncharacteristic showing off is s[...]

1/48th Tamiya F4U-1A

The Tamiya 1/48th Corsair kits (F4U-1, -1A and -1D) are extremely nice to work with and go together smoothly. I'd rank them as the best Corsair kits available in that scale. The plane I've modeled is a FG-1A (Goodyear produced) Corsair in the m[...]

Academy 1:48 F-15E

Hello everybody! This is my last build, the huge Strike Eagle. Buildind this beast took some time, dry fitting, sanding and filling is essential to achieve a decent finish, especially on intakes and fuselage-wings join. The weapon loadout is hu[...]
