This is the Hasegawa 1/32 Bf-109E kit from the 1970s. I bought this on the secondary market and it had some resin aftermarket interior parts with it. I don’t normally spend the extra money for those, but since they were with the kit [...]

Overall a nice kit when finished but I had to really fight parts of it- specifically the [...]
With two Bf 109 kits, I knew one would have to have the classic yellow nose. I also wanted to try the dreaded mottling that made Luftwaffe aircraft so off-putting. Two birds, one stone I thought.

Hello, today I want to show you the second part of my little Battle of Britain diorama. I used the expert set of the Hawker Hurricane from the Polish manufacturer "Arma Hobby". Since everything is already included in the set to [...]
Here are my two tiny little Spitfires from Airfix. I wanted to build a Battle of Britain scene where pilots wait for their next scramble, as shown on many historic pictures. This is becaue I like it to give my models a [...]
