Bell P-39 Airacobra

Arma Hobby 1/72 Bell Airacobra P39Q.

Yet another exquisite kit from Arma Hobbies that was a joy to build OOB. No issues to note other than the ones I created for myself. As with all Arma kits careful placement will repay you in the end. Primed with Mr. Surfacer 1500 [...]

P-39s Airacobra and lead corrosion

Eduard's 1/48 P-39 Airacobra variants are excellent kits that are well detailed and look like the famous aircraft when assembled. I took out these models from my display cabinet where they rested for two decades. As I was photographing the [...]

Arma Hobby 1/72 P-39N

Love these Arma Hobby kits, even though they are a tad over-engineered. It probably took me about as much time to get the interior finished and the fuselage closed up, as it did all the rest of the process! The kit comes with a great set [...]

Pro Modeler 1/48 P-39Q Airacobra

The origins of the Airacobra can be traced back in 1937, when USAAC issued a specification calling for a single-engine high-altitude interceptor. The aggressive specifications called, among others, for a liquid-cooled Allison engine [...]

Revell 1/72 Bell P-39 Airacobra

Not too long ago I really enjoyed the build of Revell's old 1/72 F4F-4 Wildcat. The Wildcat did need a little work to bring it up a bit but I just loved the whole build. So after building a few Matchbox kits in a row, I decided to give [...]

Eduard P-39N Airacobra, 1/48. 'Lend-lease Ace Maker'.

I got this kit to be a bit of a quicker build and recover some mojo, and it's generally been a fun build. Whilst the kit is for American P-39Qs, the Eduard set comes with the parts for any of the versions. Foxbot and Montex was used to [...]

Hasegawa, 1:48 Scale P-400, "Airacobra"

This is the Hasegawa 1:48 scale P-400. Nice kit. Goes together very well, has really nice detail inside and out. Even the doors fit without too much tweaking. A friend of mine, Nick Buro, was a crew chief on these birds. He was asked [...]

P-39Q "Brown Eyes" (Arma Hobby 1/72)

This is the latest model kit issued by Army Hobby in 1/72 scale (most of their kits are in this scale, but I'm still waiting for the promised Hurricane in 1/48). I built some of their first plastic kits (PZL P.7), and a later Wildcat along [...]

1/48 Monogram P-39D Airacobra

Hello, For my first post, I propose you the old but nice model of the P-39 from Monogram. The cockpit layout is mostly handmade. I also used Eduard photoetch for the landing gear. The decoration comes from an Aeromaster decal sheet that I [...]
