‘A Higher Call’ – the very best of humanity in the very worst of times.

I think most people on iModeler will know of the story of Charlie Brown and Franz Stigler. On the return journey home from a bombing raid on Germany in December 1943, 20 year old pilot Charlie Brown nursed his critically injured B-17 towa[...]

Zvezda Bf-109 F4

Hey there, fellas. This is my attempt at Zveda’s 1/48 F4. The kit is very detailed and has a lot of options, but the build can be a little finnicky with all the engine parts. I have mixed feelings about kits with such options: it seems like a w[...]

Not Tamiya… but Zvezda 109 G-6 1/48

I've started some months ago a WIP doing a side by side build of 2 bf.109 G-6, one from Eduard and the other from the lesser know mould of the russian company Zvezda. As you can see the kit builds very well providing one carefully reads the ins[...]

Hasegawa (Pro Modeler) Bf-109G-2, Finnish Air Force

Tamiya Bf-109V-14

The Bf-109 V13 and V14 prototypes were the first Bf-109 airframes to utilize Daimler-Benz DB 600-series engines, which finally gave the airframe the power it had needed since it first flew. The DB 600 was effectively the prototype for the mass-[...]

Eduard 1/48 Bf-109G-14 (Profipack kit)

By the Spring of 1944, the Bf-109G-6, which had been the primary production version of Messerschmitt’s fighter since the previous fall, was falling behind in the relentless race for performance. Beginning in the late spring, many airframes were [...]
