1/48 Spitfire Mk. XII.

This is the Airfix kit from around 10 years ago. This kit and the Seafire XVII were the first 1/48 Spitfires designed by Airfix under Hornby’s management. I built this one straight from the box for the most part. I only added Eduard seatbelts [...]

From Pearl Harbour to Calvary – The history of Mitsuo Fushida closed in small model of plane

I met the character of Mitsuo Fushida for the first time while watching, not so long ago, quite old (but very good) movie "Tora Tora Tora". A slim man with a characteristic mustache with a sense of his mission. As it turns out, his biggest missi[...]

AIRFIX 1/76th CROMWELL, SHERMAN TANK, JEEP & TRAILER

Just built these 2 for my son who wants to build a "D-Day" themed diorama (meaning i'll end up attempting it) Straight from the box, few parts (but some very tiny). The only thing i wish i had changed is on the Jeep. That is the supports for the[...]

“Duel in the Sun” or YGBSM, F-105F vs SA-2 Guideline. 1/72

YGBSM meaning.... You gotta be sh**ing me! The reaction to the description of the Wild Weasel mission when it was explained to an Electronic warfare officer who had transferred from B-52s. Much has been written about the WW mission who went up a[...]

Mig 17F Angola (1;48 Smer/ Airfix)

Gents and Ladies, Here is an older kit I did a while back its the 1:48 Smer/ Airifix kit of the Mig 17F. I used Tom Coopers African Migs as reference for the background info and photos. I drew up the decals for bort numbers and printed them o[...]

Hi There, I picked this up recently and got to building quite quickly. It all fitted very well with very little filler used. I fancied doing a Cuban version. Would this version have had The Cuban Flag Tailplane, Bombs and the wing fold utilised.[...]

Top Gun ‘MiG-28’ (F-5E), Airfix 1/72

Here is a quick post of the 'MiG-28' from the 1986 Top Gun Movie Airfix kit A00502 With 'Top Gun: Maverick' expected release some time this year, Airfix did a re-release of this kit from the original 1987 kit. After I posted my last build of th[...]

1/48 RAAF Tiger Moth – de Havilland 100 Group Build.

This is the new Airfix kit built as an Australian bird that was assigned to 8 Squadron, RAAF, in Malaya in 1941-42. 8 Squadron was a Hudson bomber unit so we can surmise that this Moth was a squadron utility hack. I found a photo of it crushed[...]

Airfix 1/72 B-26 Marauder

Airfix 1/72 B-26B Marauder. I made this kit last year for a FB group build, the theme was "Airfix B-26." Mostly made out of the box build except for the following: added some extra details in the cockpit and bombardier area and the use of Mono[...]

1/72 Airfix Beaufighter TF Mk. X Coastal Command

I call this my FrankenBeau... This was from the old Dogfight Doubles kit (along with the Bf 109 G from my prior post) so a very basic kit. No gun ports, no ejector chutes, raised rivets and panels... I had accidentally purchased a box of Haseg[...]
