This model is assembled in the New Year holidays. Easy assembly out of the box. I just added the seat belts to the pilot's seat and made a rivet imitation along the jointing lines. Kokkardy made-up through a stencil.
Very nice in t[...]
Well here we are with another rendition of Airfix's new Meteor this time as you can see in markings for an aircraft flown by the Israeli airforce.
It is nice to see another 1/48 Meteor available to us and I must admit to getting a little giddy w[...]
This is my attempt at producing an accurate 1/72 scale rendition on the RB-57E. For many years the Italeri B-57 was regarded as the best option but unfortunately the kit is deeply flawed, the issues are too many to go into here, but s[...]
I've just finished shooting the photos for these two builds which will be featured in Model Airplane International soon. They are the Airfix Mustang and Eduard Typhoon, both in 1:48. The Mustang has the excellent Eduard gun bay set in one of the[...]

I recently bought an airbrush which I am using f[...]

This is the still new Airfix kit. The kit itself is superb, featuring solid engineering and great fit. I finished it straight from the box, including kit decals for 45 Squadron in Malaya during 1949. I did make seatbelts from painted Tamiya tape[...]
When I saw a pic of the Malaysian scheme in a magazine, I had to build it. I ordered a couple different sets of after market decals (none for an F-5), but they didn't fit the size of the model. I was surprised when I opened the box that it incl[...]
I can't rate this kit highly enough. It was an absolute dream to build, and I managed to finish it in less than a month, in no small part due to the fact that I only once had to trim something to fit (I took about .5 of a millimetre from the top[...]
The third decade of 20th century was world’s turbulent turning point. Germany was ruled by total dictatorship, Italy was finding way into world’s politics, Britany and France were asleeped…and everyone was rearming and arming for the upcoming co[...]
