Curtiss CW-22B

Here's my CW-22B from Dora Wings in 1:48. It was a fairly easy build, it just needed a little thinning of the cockpit tub at the rear for a good fit. I used a section of an old bomb to make a spacer between the engine and firewall, as I [...]

P-47B

Here's my early P-47B from Dora Wings in 1:48 I finished awhile back and just got around to taking some photos. This is one of their better kits in my opinion, everything fit well except the top and bottom wings at the wing root. The [...]

Miles M.9 Master Mk.I

Here's a Dora Wings build from a couple of months ago. The Master M.9 Mk.I was a 2-seat wooden trainer with an oval section fuselage covered with a plywood skin using a semi-monocoque approach, invited gull wing, and powered with a [...]

Gee Bee Racer

Here's my Gee Bee R2 from Dora Wings. A nice, simple little kit, but I had some issues with it. I am not happy with the windscreen, it just looks too clunky, I tried and failed to make a better one. Also, the real Gee Bee had a very [...]
