1/48 Mustang P-51D by Airfix

My first Airfix model and I must say, beautiful model OOB

North-American P-51-D Mustang Airfix 1/72

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 [...]

Swiss De Havilland Vampire T-11 – Airfix, 1/72

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[...]

1/48 Spitfire FR 18.

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[...]

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[...]
