AIRFIX 1:48 SPITFIRE MK.I (Kit Number A05115A)

I built this in tandem with the build I posted yesterday using the earlier and slightly easier to build kit. This is the other famous 57 OTU aircraft, LV⦿N, s/n AR212. I shamelessly copied from yesterdays article...Innards were painted with Tami[...]

Airfix 1:48 Spitfire Mk. I (Kit Number A05126)

The newest Mk.I kit with the fuel tank cover and landing gear issues. Other than that, a great kit. This is WZ⦿H of 19 Squadron, Duxford, 4th May 1939. Innards were painted with Tamiya XF-71 Cockpit Green. Masking tape harnesses. The bottom was [...]

TAMIYA A6M5 Zero 1:48

It's funny, but you will forgive me (I hope): since I returned to this hobby after more than 40 years of absence, I am amazed to retrace paths that others younger than me have already traveled. I have rediscovered a state of the art light years [...]

The last of its kind: Arado Ar 68, the Luftwaffe’s final biplane fighter aircraft

By the mid-1930s it was clear to the experts that in the medium term the future of military aviation would be found in the development of monoplanes. In many areas, the approach of the metal-covered and aerodynamically slim monoplane had already[...]

Monogram Butcher Bird

An older boxing of this venerable kit. The decals were very brittle and gave me some problems. Otherwise, it turned out better than the last one I did around 1973!

The new Airfix Sabre

This is the new Airfix Sabre in 1:48 scale which I've just built and is featured in the current issue of Airfix Model World Magazine. This was a great kit to build, plenty of detail in it and it all fits well. The markings will be one of the kit[...]

Updating the old Monogram B-58 (1:48): part 2. engine intakes in 3D

Just a short note for today - I finally finished the B-58 intakes, the printed parts are cleaned,primed, sanded adjusted and I sent back them to SBS Model for the first experimental moldings. I made a handmade replacement intakes set some years [...]

‘What If’ Boeing B-17G Flying Fortress Early production HK Models

Good day , after a long time I dared to show the finished model. It's a B-17 from HK Models in 1/48. Again, I'm excited about how well the model is made and how good it looks. It is a heavy and large piece of furniture. For the first time, I use[...]

F8F-1B Bearcat, VNAF 1st FS 1963

When I bought this kit, I was really dissapointed. Really poor in everything. I was almost convinced to put it into trash bin. But then I saw some works of one guy, who built really old fashioned and really really poor kits so nicely that I star[...]

ACADEMY 1:48 Grumman TBM-3 Avenger Kit Number #12285

I've had this kit for a long time; it's an Accurate Miniatures re-pop. I've been wanting to do this as an Atlantic Scheme and settled on this version. The thing that delayed the build for years was the lack of information on the underwing strike[...]
