Vought F4U-2, Tamiya 1/48.

What inspires you to choose a kit or a scheme? For this model it was a post on this very forum that is a large reason. My long term goal is to build a Corsair of every variant in 1/48, starting from the simple F4U-1 by Tamiya and ending in a sc[...]

Vought Corsair Mk.II, Tamiya 1/48.

1/48 Reggiane Re. 2001

This is the new Sword kit. It’s a completely new mold and shares nothing with the old Classic Airframes model of this plane. The plastic moldings on this kit are top notch, smooth surfaced, and fit well. The only things that indicate that it’[...]

1:48 Scale Trumpeter Savoia-Marchetti, SM-79 Sparviero (Sparrow Hawk)

This model was a build in the making of about four, maybe five years. One of those builds that was really intriguing at first, but was a constant interest loser for the rest of the time. I'd pick it up now and again, play around with her, and [...]
