Williams Brothers 1/48 Ford Flivver

Hi All, This is a delightful little kit. I added a lap belt, instrument bezels, some stretched sprue rigging for the tail and spark plug leads. You could probably do it in a weekend but I took a bit longer because as usual life got in[...]

Airfix 1/48 Curtis H81-A3 (P-40B Tomahawk)

This is a nice kit but my problems started when I decided to put the Aires cockpit in it. It was not that great of an improvement to the kit parts and it was too wide. I sealed the fuselage and inserted it as a unit up through the wing opening[...]

F4U-1A Corsair Arii 1/48

Hi all , it's been a while since my last posting but here we are. This is an Arii kit of the brilliant F4U Corsair, it seems strange for me to say that as a lifelong modeller I've never built one of these before in any scale so when I saw it on [...]

Messerschmitt Bf 109 G-5, Wilde Sau, Eduard, 1/48

This one has been waiting for the last few details for some time, and was actually started in October 2018! I really liked the colors of “white 1” from JG300, but sadly my airbrush skills were not up to the thin lines needed for that one. And [...]

Spitfire Mk IX. 316 Sqdron. Italeri 1/48

Hi guys. This is my last victim, a Spitfire from 316 sqd. RAF. After bult the Hasegawa model of the same item, this one from Italeri looks a litle bit "less", but has been a very satisfactory built. Hope you like it. Sifredo Cubas

Tamiya 1/48 F-14A Tomcat/ “Miss Molly”… VF-111 “Sundowners”

the Grumman F-14 Tomcat was the US Navy's primary fighter for 35 years from the early 70's till 2006...it came out of Mcnamara's failed F-111 project...in fact from the intakes back the F14 is the F-111 though the Navy added the second tail for[...]

Yellow Nose Airfix Spitfire 1/48

This is a kit I built a couple of years back. It is the 2015 release (2nd pressing) of the 1/48 Airfix Spitfire Mk I. It is mostly OOB with the exception of some Eduard RAF early style harnesses. I learned the hard way that unless the Spitfir[...]

Airfix 1/48 Spitfire I – the first successful Spitfire in combat

The first Spitfire is immortal as “the plane that saved Britain” (even if Britain was really saved by the Hurricane) in the Battle of Britain. A delicate blend of aerodynamic excellence, the Spitfire I almost wasn’t there to do its part in savin[...]
