Originally this 1/48 Fujimi Bf- 110 was to have the mouth marking on the nose, but the decal wouldn’t lay down nicely on the compound curved nose. I found some photographs in a book that showed a similarly painted aircraft with the spade marking[...]
Just another P-40 from the Bebout Curtiss Factory, this one from Hasegawa. If you've build any of their P-40's you know they use various plug in parts, enabling them to produce several different P-40 versions using a base air frame. Many thanks [...]
Despite the fact that Eduard’s kits usually get glowing reviews I can always find some nits to pick. Granted the level of surface detail in mostly fantastic, and some of the parts fit briliantly.

This is my tribute to Air Vice Marshal “Johnnie” Johnson. It is a simulated dogfight between his Spitfire IX JE J EN398 and a Bf-110 C.

Here in the USA we are having our Thanksgiving Day Holiday. This is a day where we are supposed to be thankful for the blessings we have, and to celebrate the first "meal" shared with the Native Americans by the Pilgrims. It also gives the banks[...]
Greetings fellow modelers!
It has been a wile since I posted the last model (it's summer, so I guess it's normal), so here I bring to you today my last model: It's the twin engined german heavy fighter, the Bf-110.
Last month I was given this [...]
The Me Bf110 needs no introduction for most modelers; the distinctive twin tail, twin engines and slender fuselage made for a very handsome looking airplane, albeit one that was a failure in its original intended role of Destroyer in the face of[...]
