Classic Airframes 1/48 Fiat CR.42 CN

The last of the great biplane fighters to enter service in 1938, the Fiat CR.42 “Falco” (Falcon) became the single most-produced Italian fighter. Agile, light, and regarded by Regia Aeronautica pilots as a wonderful aircraft to fly, the Falco w[...]

The mythical beast: 1/48 Wyverns from Classic Airframes and Trumpeter

The Wyvern has to be one of the strangest airplanes to ever grace a carrier deck. The first turboprop, its ten years of gestation and failure as the FAA's strike force paid off for the rest of aviation by solving the problems of controlling and[...]

Classic Airframes 1:48: Boulton Paul Defiant Mk1, Hornchurch, 1940

The build: I was never happy with the finish on this one so went for a complete respray as the real aircraft had a roughly applied demarcation line between upper/lower paint scheme on fuselage. Re-done weathering and added antennae wire. I open[...]

Classic Airframes Hawker Sea Hawk 1/48

Well by hook or by crook here is my rendition of the Hawker Seahawk,I was unable to do anything about the paint showing through on the Ace of diamonds squadron insignia and so just had to leave it alone figuring that it would look infinitely wor[...]

to get 20 points closer. Classic Airframes Curtiss Hawk III, Chinese Air Force late '30's. Hawk III was China's main fighter of the time, did well against unescorted bombers but faded when the monoplane Japanese fighters showed up. Not an easy k[...]

Classic Airframes Westland Wyvern 1/48

This is my Classic Airframes Wyvern (anyone know what a Wyvern is?) and one of my favourites,it certainly is an ungainly looking bird but I love that huge contra-rotating prop set up.This is the only Classic airframes kit I have built and consid[...]

Classic Airframes 1/48 I-153s

The Classic Airframes I-153 came out in around 1996, the last of the kits done for them by Eduard, and one of the first Eduard kits to be done in mainstream injection-molded plastic with better molds. The kit was later released by Eduard themse[...]

Gone but not forgotten…Colorful Curtiss…

For something different, I built this Classic Airframes 1/48 Cuban Hawk. A true representative of 1930's color. This airplane had an interesting history, being flown by an American acrobatic pilot in the employ of the Cuban Airforce. It was my o[...]
