Airfix 1/48 Curtis H81-A3 (P-40B Tomahawk)

This is a nice kit but my problems started when I decided to put the Aires cockpit in it. It was not that great of an improvement to the kit parts and it was too wide. I sealed the fuselage and inserted it as a unit up through the wing opening[...]

Airfix 1/48 Spitfire F XIVe

It's a strange but interesting fact that the only "built for that specific powerplant" Spitfire to achieve a large production run was the Mk.I; while there were several other Marks specifically designed to make maximum benefit of the additional [...]

April 2019 random draw winner

I've just returned from my vacation celebrating my 70th birthday and my 30th wedding anniversary, yes I actually got married 30 years ago on my birthday, and a wonderful surprise of the 1/48 Airfix Spitfire MK XIV was waiting for me. Thanks to [...]

FW190A-5 Airfix 1/24

Hello friends! I present to you my work that I did in 2017. A huge red box with a beautiful pattern of the prototype model contained very old details! Perhaps set released in the mid-1980s. The low quality of the set and poor detailing required [...]

Yellow Nose Airfix Spitfire 1/48

This is a kit I built a couple of years back. It is the 2015 release (2nd pressing) of the 1/48 Airfix Spitfire Mk I. It is mostly OOB with the exception of some Eduard RAF early style harnesses. I learned the hard way that unless the Spitfir[...]

Airfix 1/48 Spitfire I – the first successful Spitfire in combat

The first Spitfire is immortal as “the plane that saved Britain” (even if Britain was really saved by the Hurricane) in the Battle of Britain. A delicate blend of aerodynamic excellence, the Spitfire I almost wasn’t there to do its part in savin[...]

Airfix P-51D and the 23rd Fighter Group Yokahama Yardbird

When most people think of the 23rd fighter group they are thinking of the extensive use of the various P-40 types during the campaign in China. Conversely it is thought that the P-51 is an aircraft of the European theaters or escorting B-29s to[...]

More poor quality from Airfix!

I purchased an Airfix C-47 yesterday. When inspecting the parts, I noticed this. I contacted Airfix. I received the standard email saying part unavailable. I would think very carefully before buying the new Hellcat from Airfix. Their after sal[...]

Airfix 1/48 Curtiss Tomahawk II

With war clouds on the sky in 1938, the Army Air Corps determined it needed a fighter with better performance than the P-36. Curtiss had developed a design strategy stretching back to the P-1 if stretching an airframe as far as possible, and the[...]

Airfix 1/72 Mustang P-51D with wrong decals

Hi There, It was decided by Innis that our next project would be a Mustang, but an RAF one. I had a couple of Mustangs picked up from Aldi, but no RAF decals. I managed to get some cheaply but they were for a Mustang III. Still, The Wee Manny [...]
