Restoration Project, Avro Vulcan B1a

Well, the danger of moving boxes etc in the man cave, you occasionally come across a project you had tucked away in a "safe place" and then forgotten about. This is the Airfix 1/72 Avro Vulcan B2, converted back to a B1a. I used the David J Park[...]

Shorts Tucano T.1 – Airfix – 1/72

A 1990 kit in a 2012 boxing and it was a bit of a battle. I managed to lose the air-brake part but as I was building it closed I just filled the space. The fuselage was significantly warped and the wings were squint. Filler and clamps were use[...]

‘Straffing the Ammo Storage !’ 1/72 P-47 Razorback Airfix

Hello, once again, today I would like to show you, one of the most challenging builds I ever did. The MOTORIZED P-47 Razorback or as it used to be called THE JUG. This build was done in the summer of 2019 and it was my first ever build where I [...]

Found these two on the web, at a reasonable price. I have noticed of late that prices have gotten way out of hand. I bagged these with shipping for around 20 dollars US each. Some listings , for the TBD goes for three times as much or more.

1/72 Airfix Supermarine Spitfire Mk. 1a

1/72 Airfix Supermarine Spitfire Mk. 1a. (2010) Built entirely out of the box. Tamiya tape Sutton harness. Paints were a combination of Mr. Color, Mr. Hobby, Tamiya and Alclad II. UVDR aerial wire. This is a really great kit without issues. Even[...]

Airfix 1/48 P-40 – Luke Army Air Field

I had heard great things about this kit, and I was looking for something a little different to do with it. When you search for P-40s on the internet, one of the first photos that comes up is a P-40CU that was used as a trainer at the Advanced [...]

Typhoon! Petty and ill informed critique.

Right. I have issues with the Typhoon. First it's dismal beginnings. The Car Door complete with wind down window just like a Morris Minor. Terrible visibility until the Bubble Top came out (even though Yaks and FW 190's had superb canopies). Whe[...]
