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[...]
I had this kit in my stash for some time. I bought a Cutting Edge engine correction set for it, and didn't think about building it until I saw the release of the Eduard BF110G-2 kit. The boxing I bought was the Wespen release, which comes with a[...]

Here I am again! This time with the new tooling BF110 from Airfix in 1/72. Very nice model and it was a pleasure to build it.
I was very impressed wi[...]
This kit is effectively the 1/48 kit scaled down, and Eduard have done a great job of cramming as much detail as possible into the smaller version. Surface detail was superb, and the fit of parts virtually perfect except where the engine nacell[...]
