This one has a fairly unusual peace time 'kill'..
On the morning of 30th August 1955, one of the oddest 'shoot downs' in the history of military aviation occurred; No 805 Squadron would be called upon to fire on an unusual 'enemy' in the skies [...]
One of the advantages of building in 72nd scale is that kits are small and cheap enough to allow me to build aircraft that I’m “kind of” interested in (basically every airplane ever made). As an example, I picked up this new Airfix[...]
Another kit from the newer Airfix moulds. Builds nicely, only problem is the very thick dayglo decals. I had to airbrush the leading edges as the decals wouldn't go over the curvature, and mixed several mixes but couldn't get the exact shade of [...]
Built straight out of the box. As reported everywhere, fitting the cockpit and front undercarriage bay needs some cutting and modifying. Apart from that, the build goes on very smoothly. Colours are as instructed by Airfix with their Humbrol range.

Finally finished the next models for my Model Airplane International Battle of Britain series, a pair of 1:48 Airfix Hurricanes. A lot of research went into P2923 and a big thanks must got Mark Postlethwaite for the a photo of this aircraft whic[...]
Have been modeling for 30 years and this is the first P-40 I have built. Not sure why, as I have always been a big fan since I saw “The Flying Tigers” as a kid. Really enjoyed building this kit, and it is one of Airfix’s better efforts. It is fi[...]
Hello iModeler! This is my recently finished Airfix Spitfire PR. XIX. Although the interferon detail was not as crisp as the newly tooled Airfix Mk. V Spitfire, it was still a fun kit and went together rather nicely. Build was OOB, paint was [...]
This has to be one of my finest models and I never expected it to be. It is an Airfix kit and had its fair share of problem, but now looks great and is a great addition to my room. I decided to sharpie over the cockpit instead of keeping it cl[...]
