1/48 Bristol Blenheim If.

This is the outstanding recent Airfix kit. It’s highly detailed, well engineered, and is a pleasure to build. I started this one late last year and it assembled very quickly with no problems. The only thing I added was a set of Eduard belts. [...]

TF-51 Mustangs in 1/72

Going small :) This is the first time I've built a 1/72nd scale fighter(s). Tiny!! The Little Witch was converted from the Tamiya kit, and Miss Velma is the AIrfix kit. I love them both, they both build up in to fine models. The AIrfix is a a [...]

Airfix 1/72nd scale B-25 Mitchell (RAF version)

Here's Airfix's relatively new-tool 1/72nd scale B-25 Mitchell. This was built out of the box as a mojo-restorer and what a cracking little kit it was! It goes together beautifully, is crammed with detail and was an absolute pleasure - even in [...]

Revell 1/72 Avro Shackleton – WL747 “Florence” 8 Squadron RAF Lossiemouth 1979

This one was personal. We used to get most of our AEF at Lossiemouth when I was in the Cadets and whilst this was mostly Chippie based, one glorious summer Sunday we got a long flight in this Grey Lady. Still one of the most memorable times I ha[...]

More Models

Hello: The great and friendly reception I got in this group motivated me to resume my modelling activities that have been dormant for more than 40 years. I just ordered a 1/600 scale Graf Spee from Airfix and a 1/570 scale Scharnhorst from Rev[...]

“He who sows the Fury will reap the Hurricane!” Sidney Camms biplane masterpiece Hawker Fury

With the last years of the 1930s, the era of the biplane in military use finally came to an end. Although it was a farewell, it was a grand departure! The Hawker Fury I can be counted among the top products of a design concept oriented towards t[...]

Spitfirepalooza Continues

I just finished another Spitfire to add to my collection. This time it’s the Airfix 1/72 Mk. Vb in the colors of Don Gentile’s aircraft. I believe the molds for this are from the mid 70’s and while there is a lack of detail (as in no wheel bay d[...]

“It’s a bomber, it’s a bomber…!”

October 2019 marked the 40th anniversary of Motörhead’s iconic third album Bomber. An absolute rock’n’roll classic from start to finish, raging through Dead Men Tell No Tales, Stone Dead Forever, Sharpshooter and (of course) the rollicking [...]
