This is my first post on the forum
Here is my Monogram P-39 Airacobra that I completed last month. It is built OOB with E-Z masks and Vallejo air paints. I was very much inspired by the excellent video on the same kit from Flying S Models [...]
I tried another HobbyBoss 'Easy Assembly' kit and it was pretty easy and pretty quick, but has a few detail errors and/or missing items. It does provide me with an adequate Airacorbra for my case. This was good practice for the Academy [...]
Should credit Tom Cleaver's GB titled Build 'Em or Bin 'Em for helping me get the old Mojo juices flowing again. I've had little or no time at the bench for several months but hopefully that will now change. Started this kit long ago as [...]
This Eduard kit was build some time ago.
Its the weekend edition.
Build simply oob and painted with Gunze and Tamiya acrylic paints.
The US national markings are painted on it as weathered.

My oldest brother Pedrinho (82 [...]
1/48 Eduard P-39N Airacobra Profipack kit. I just finished this today. While looking through my stash last month I found this kit partially built in the box. I had started it in 2014 and then put it away probably because I really don't [...]
Built in 2015.
Eduard kit, painted with Gunze and Tamiya paints, the Azure is from Model Master.
Some discussion about the camo paints of these planes. As far as I know they were initially built for and delivered to the Brits but not [...]
Another model goes to my shelf. This time, a design that appears at competitions quite sporadically, namely the P-39 Airacobra. The model itself is quite nice, but I added Eduard plates, HGW belts, Master barrels and Eduard exhaust pipes. [...]
Latest off the bench is Eduard's kit of the P-400 Airacobra. With lots of spare time, because of the Covid-19 shelter in place orders, I've used this time to reduce some of my stash. Lots has been written about this kit as well as why it's [...]
