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 [...]
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[...]
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[...]
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[...]

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[...]
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-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[...]
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[...]
