Airfix's newer releases the past few years, of which this is one of, have really upped their game. In the past, some of their kits left a LOT to be desired, being little more than toys.
This P-40 kit is really nice and it's the second of [...]
Another belter of a kit from Airfix.
The fit was superb and very little filler was needed.

Painted with Colourcoats Extra Dark Sea Grey and Light Aircraft Grey.

This is a build that I had started a while ago. My very first model I built was the old 1/32 scale Revell P-40E "Flying Tigers" model. I was 8 years old. I was captivated by the box art, showing a P-40 diving through a [...]

This 'Daffy' was built during a quick break during training, I didn't have anything in the stash that I thought would be a quick build so I ended up going to the only model shop left in my area and picking this guy up, and then later [...]
How I acquired this kit in the first place is unusual to say the least...a few years ago I was doing a Sunday morning tip run taking garden waste and all those paint tins with one inch of dried up paint that we all keep and god knows what [...]
Airfix Blenheim Mk.1 1/48
RAF in Greece, 1941
Biggest plane i have built so far. I love the Blenheim in both 1/72 and 1/48, although the 72nd version has some fitting issues.
I used the AK interactive Middle stone for the paint job, Ammo [...]
