Night Haunter…1/48 Boulton Paul Defiant Mk.I, RAF

Built in 2015. Initially my dad wanted to build a Defiant Mk.II nightfighter with the Classic Airframes kit with the fancy red codes but he didn´t get along with the itsy bitsy tiny PE parts for the antennas, so he decided to build a Mk.I which [...]

Operation Starkey…1/48 Westland Whirlwind Mk.I, RAF

Built in 2016. Trumpeter kit with decals from the CA kit. Regarding the a/c number, the 8 has to be exchanged with a 9. Added the missing gunsight from the sparesbox and used a plastic rod for the missing headrest support strut. The Classic Airf[...]

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’[...]

Trumpeter 1:48 Scale SM-79 “Sparviero”

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[...]

Boulton, Paul, Thorn, and Barker.

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[...]
