Just another awesome model. Hope you like it ;)
My first model for 2021. Very happy with the result although it took me much longer to complete than usual. I have a good many Mustangs in this scale & was looking forward to a trouble free build on this one, which is my first (Mustang) from[...]
New Eduard edition,first of two finished. Enjoyable build, minor fitting problems with fuselage-wing joint. Strange experience with new Eduard decals.
That Tempest II in July is nice. Hopefully the S.199 will be in 1/48 first. 4-cannon Fw-190A-5 is also interesting, as is the Spitfire V in the fall. I like the Fw-190F-8.

#28/2020 and the last one for this year
Eduard kit, upper wing and fuselage Balkenkreuz decals taken from a Fw190 kit because Erla G-10 had smaller ones, besides that the ones on the upper wings were in a slightly more outward position. Brake [...]
I do know this Eduard kit has been presented here before, but in order to present my 109's I have chosen to add it here too.
I have used the kit decals even though I do realise they are slightly wrong with too fat lines. I opened the vent on [...]
Built in 2015.
Eduard kit, painted with Gunze and Tamiya paints, the Azure is from Model Master.
Some discussion about the camo paints of these planes. As far as I know they were initially built for and delivered to the Brits but not liked the[...]
