My first Airfix model and I must say, beautiful model OOB
It has been a while, but just finished my 1/72 P-51-D Mustang from Airfix. This is the kit with their new tooling and it's a very nice kit to work on. Tolerances are tight and I managed to build it without a single blob of filler. With exeption [...]
This is a build I've completed some time ago, but was missing here.
It was a very simple, yet fun, build a friend of mine asked me to do for him. Actualy, he gave me the kit already built, only for painting.
It's the Airfix one, in 1/72, built[...]
This is the new Airfix Mk. XIVe kit finished as an FR 18. The XIV/18 are my favorite Spitfires and I’m really glad this kit came about. I bought three of them in early June when they were released. Two were perfectly molded, one had seriousl[...]

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