Tamiya 1/48 Spitfire Mk. I

Hello iModeler! Here is my recently finished Tamiya Spitfire build 100% out of the box. The fit and engineering of this kit was awesome, and makes it extremely enjoyable to build. I would gladly build several more!

264 Squadron Boulton-Paul Defiant in 1/48 (Battle of Britain day scheme)

Hi all, This is my lash up of the relatively new tool Airfix quarter scale Defiant. Tried a heavy post-shade then comprehensive highlighting coat technique with freehand camo. All feedback welcome as ever! :-) Full build video here:

Happy New Year, Happy New Tool Spitfire! Tamiya’s new Mk.Ia built…

A new Spitfire for the New Year! I'm sure many of you have been looking at Tamiya's new release and new tool Supermarine Spitfire Mk.1 in 1:48 scale. Here follows my two cents having built it over the last few days of the Christmas break: Thi[...]

Airfix 5120 1:48 Messerschmitt Bf 109E-4

My first 1:48 Airfix kit, it was an absolute joy to build, except for the canopy, which had an awful fit. Parts also fitted very tight in some areas, so they had to be sanded to get a good fit. I used the kit decals to make Adolf Galland´s Bf 1[...]

Tamiya BF-109 E 4 1/72 with little Luftwaffe Hangar

The illustrated machine is the white 7 of the Lt. Josef Bürschgens 7./JG 26, Caffiers Aug. 1940, that is, at the time of the Battle of Britain. As you know, the Tamiya kits are a pleasure to build and there are no difficulties to bring this one [...]

Airfix Bf-109 E3 1/72 “Forced Landing”

My newest project is the Airfix BF-109 E in 1/72 scale. The figures are from Zvezda, named "british recon team". I airbrushed my models with "Mr. Hobby" colors and did some dust dirt with "mig ammo" (airplanes engines and exhausts) and "Ak inter[...]

Revell 1/32 Spitfire MK 1, No. 54 Squadron, Pilot Officer “Al” Deere June 1940 B.O.B.

Here's a little article on the old (and I do mean old for a model) Spitfire Mk.1 that was initially released by Revell back in the year 1969 or so. This is a re- release of the kit from approximately 1990. It's kit number 4555. I built it pr[...]

1/48 Scale Revell He-111 H-4

The Heinkel He-111 is a more modern molding from Revell. The original model came out in 1995, and it was heralded as being a rival to anything Tamiya or Hasegawa were putting out at the time. I did get one back then, but I had yet to build it. F[...]

1968 boxing of the 1/72 scale Airfix Handley-Page Hampden.

I built this old school kit in an old school style. No putty, so there are seams, but I didn't want to sand off all of the rivets! I used my airbrush to apply the Dark Earth and Dark Green RAF Camo, but the decals were unusable, so I went with[...]
