Uganda Mig17 F

Another Smer/ Airifx/ Mister Craft 1:48 finished as a Ugandan Mig17 F. These are old, clunky, cheap but well engineered kits and this is my third one. No filler involved at all. I did replace the arment with turned brass as the pitot [...]

Tamiya 1:48 P-47M (Kit #61096*2800)

The title is a bit misleading as this is supposed to be an F-47D-40-RA and Tamiya supplies extra parts to do so. The F-47D came about as the new U.S.A.F. changed from Pursuit to Fighter. If you want to see a photo of the actual aircraft, [...]

Airfix 1/48 D h Tiger Moth

Hi everyone ☺️ Finished the Moth today, it's the Airfix 1/48 kit that was released a short while ago. I saw on on this site an earlier post by a fellow contributer of a yellow Moth. I was hooked when I came round to doing my Moth it [...]

1/48 Hasegawa F-16N NFWS "Topgun"

Hi all. This one is the first for 2023 though I started it a few years ago with the bulk of the work done last year. It's the venerable 1/48th Hasegawa F-16N. I eyed off the 72nd version when I was a kid but never built it so when this [...]

1/48 Hasegawa Macchi 202

A tale of a build and a half. I built the sublime Hasegawa Macchi 202 quite some time ago. The kit is a super model with only one tricky part of the build and that's the gun troughs over the engine. Everything else is sweet. I used a True [...]


Built straight OOB. No problems, just a fun little kit to build while I'm recovering from illness. Few things i DONT like about this kit is the gaping chasm where the driver should be if, as i did, you build it with the hatch open, and [...]

1/48 Tamiya A6M2-N "Rufe"36th Air Wing, Borneo

This is Tamiya's aging 1/48 "Rufe",(released in 1973!) Its a nice, simple build out of the box, and with a little help, can look quite presentable. I tweaked it with lots of weight in the front of the float, added Eduard's [...]

Air Defence...1/48 Flakpanzer IV "Möbelwagen" with 3,7cm Flak 43

After a longer pause and for some diversion between all the aircraft, my dad built a little armour model. Great Tamiya kit, falls together, painted with Tamiya XF-60/62/64 Build thread here (link)

H-K Models 1/48 B-25J Mitchell

What became the B-25 Mitchell medium bomber originated in a 1938 Army Air Corps proposal for a twin-engine medium bomber. The February 1938 proposal from North American aviation was accepted and followed by the production of the NA-40 [...]
