This is my rendition of the IAF's one and only Dh Chipmunk.When the IAF decided it needed a purpose built primary trainer they obtained an example of the Chipmunk and a Fokker s.11 to be evaluated against each other, after many flight trials th[...]
This is my one and only attempt at a diarama,obviously it is the Airfix 1/76 WW1 tank,I built the little tank in a weekend over christmas a few years back and then got interested in them and started to do some research and found that typically o[...]
Sometime around 1971 when I would have been around 6 years old I was given as a present the Airfix 1/72 Boulton Paul Defiant kit, I can actualy remember building, it probably in about an hour and when it was built not knowing what the decals wer[...]
Martin asked me a couple weeks ago if I would do the first "formal" (i.e., commissioned") review for iModeler, of the new Airfix 1/48 Spitfire P.R. XIX. Saying "yes" was easy and within a week the box showed up here at l'Chateau du Chat.

So here we go, two MiG-21s from Eduard in 1/144 scale. One Slovak one in the "Milka"-scheme whil[...]
Having cut my plactic modelling teeth on Airfix, I am delighted to see them coming back strongly with a whole range of superb models. As something different from a diet of F-15s, 16s, 18s, F-4s, Mustangs & Messerschmitts (which I love - trul[...]
This is a ten day wonder. It is the Airfix 1/48 scale kit, and took me about 14 hours total over 10 days. The personal markings are home made as is the aircraft ID. Under the tail is my brother-in-laws birthday as the civilian ID number, and [...]
