October 2019 Airfix Model World magazine – really useful

Was just at the LHS and picked up the October 2019 issue of Airfix Model World. They have a nice (probably sponsored) article on "100 years of Humbrol," in which Jay Blakemore describes several really good airbrushing techniques to produce a bet[...]

Some more Latin-American stuff from my father. Airfix kit (export version), Quickboost gunsight (kit has none), Eduard Superfabric RAF seatbelts, Barracuda Studios replacement resin cowl, a scratch part for the missing headrest cushion. Initiall[...]

1/48 Airfix Boulton Paul Defiant Mk.I

Airfix 1/48 Hunter F. 6

The Hawker Hunter is one of, if not the, most graceful looking aircraft ever to fly so I was very excited when I first learned that Airfix was going to release one in 1/48 scale. So excited, in fact, that I ended up ordering three: two F. 6’s an[...]

Martlet Mk.IV 888 NavalAir Squadron HMS Formidable,OP Torch,1942 Airfix 1/72

Another Airfix gem of a kit, Built out of the box with kit decals , went together with no real issues. The kit has you use the cowl ring extension and cowl, that left another cowl, maybe for a Martlet III? It couldn't be for the US F4F version [...]

Airfix B-17G Anxious Angel

This is the Airfix B-17G, which represents a late production Fortress with the Cheyenne tail turret and staggered waist gun positions. This is a nice kit right out of the box, I added a few aftermarket bits but you would still get a nice build [...]

Airfix 1:48 Scale, Bristol Blenheim Mk.If

I just finished this one...loved the kit, and planning on a second in Desert Air Force livery. On the whole, the kit was an interesting build. Went together well, without a lot of crying... very little putty... putty means sanding... sandi[...]

Airfix 1/48 Boulton Paul Defiant MkI

I would like to present my Boulton Paul Defiant MkI. It was built straight from the box. I only added Eduard coloured photo etched seat belts and a cut down dress makers pin for the crew foot step. This is another great Airfix kit. I really like[...]

Parallel to "Scooter´s Skeeter" I made a second Mustang out of the same kit. This time with retracted landing gear -and completely out of the box. Turning props have been simulated by transparent sheet and airbrush, decals are from the box. Of [...]
