I would like to present my first completed in 2019 kit. It was start at the end of 2018 but finished this year. The kit I' talking about is brand new Tamiya Messerschmitt Bf109G-6. The model was completed in close engine bay to show[...]
This is my first model in recent years (haven't really built in 30 years). It is the Tamiya Bf 109E-3 as flown by Adolf Galland in August 1940 in III.JG26 in France. It is more or less OOB, with only some scraping of some of the openings, especi[...]
So each Christmas I try to do a 'clear the bench project' - nothing too taxing, so I can pretty much get done in about two to three weeks. This year, Trumpeter's 1/32 109 E-7 got the nod.
Not sure why folks seem to shy away from the Trumpy 109E[...]

Here's a look at what's been happening on my bench during the past twelve months. 2018 was a bit armor-heavy, appologies for that :-D
A quick fun build to test the AK Real Color line of paints. It's a re-box of the old but venerable Italeri k[...]
Just finished this early this morning. 1/72 ICM Bf-109-E7 Trop. Painted with MRP and Gunze Mr Color. The kit breakdown is exactly like the Tamiya offering with a bit more flash and no locating pins. Fit was a bit more fiddly. When I pulled off t[...]
Hi again, this is my build of Otaki's 1/48 scale ME-109 G. I made it to replicate an aircraft of the Sonderkommando Elbe squadron that has already accomplished its mission. This squadron was made up of ME-109s and FW-109s. They were used to ram [...]
My first Airfix build for many years was a far cry from experiences with this manufacturer’s kits from years gone by. I’ve had this kit for several years now, one of two bought together in a rash of enthusiasm to produce models of all the known [...]
Messerschmitt Bf 109F-4 'Yellow 14' as flown by top scoring Luftwaffe ace Hans Jochaim Marseille in the Western Desert in 1941, who would go on to achieve 158 kills including a still unequalled 16 in a single day (all confirmed in allied records[...]
