Not one of my favorite models to say the least.
This one has been hanging out on the "Shelf of DOOM?" for more than a few years. Looking at it every once in a while, starting in on it....and then putting it back. Love the plane though, just n[...]
Welcome to the Whipple Special (named after a notorious contest attendee who built nothing unless he could build at least two of them) of the Airfix and (newer) Classic Airframes Defiants. As we live in the Golden Age of Modeling, kits are seemi[...]

This is a "Classic Airframes" kit. I was somewhat shocked when I discovered that the fuselage was not mating up with their clear windscreen/canopy part.

I like this aircraft and have built it c1938. The kit however is challenging, it had an injection canopy which took some fitting, managed to get it on then realised I hadn't fitted several interior parts! Doh! The kit decals are excellent but fo[...]
This is my best guess at what this plane looked like. Opinions vary on this plane. Is it V3 or V4? Is the color silver paint, natural metal, natural metal with a tinted clear coat, light grey, or RLM 02? So, I just chose what I liked. I wen[...]

Classic Airframes 1/48 kit. There's quite a few changes to make this model more accurate, the cockpit opening shape, the forward fuselage panel lines and the flaps are some of these. If one wants to do these improvements, pick up a copy of "Regg[...]
