Hellcat II

Built this at the same time as the Hurricane I posted here a few weeks ago but only got around to finishing it this morning. Fairly straightforward build, could have done without the separate fin-tip antenna post which was instantly [...]

Deadly Stringbag...1/48 Fairey Swordfish Mk.II, 836 NAS, Royal Navy Fleet Air Arm

My dad hasn´t done a British aircraft, at least with British markings, for a while. Now it was about time. Great Tamiya kit, also used Tamiya´s PE set for the rigging. Not a bad idea, worth a try and didn´t turn out too bad. But for the [...]

Eduard 1/48 Grumman Hellcat 1 (F6F-3)

This is a great kit that I thoroughly enjoyed building and am reasonably happy with the results. Anything else is superfluous. It's one half of a twin boxing-still have a Hellcat 2 (F6F-5), Pacific Theatre.

MPM 1/48 Fairey Fulmar

Emerging from the Fairey Battle project, the Fulmar was submitted as a response to a prewar British specification, calling for a two-crew fighter capable of observation and fleet defense operations. As the aircraft was intended to [...]

Obviously pregnant, but a fighting lady! Supermarine Attacker FB.2

Tamiya Corsair Mk.II, 1/48. The Fleet Air Arm.

Greetings folks, After getting more into the hobby and posting on a few other places, I've decided to make an account here and post my most recent builds. Critique is always important, and keeping confined to one forum or social media can [...]

Black Cat

The FAA used quite a number of Hellcats,and one of those was completely painted in glossy black! Though there are a number of controversies,I decided that such a camo shouldn´t be passed by... The kit used is the 1/48 Eduard Weekend [...]

Sea Harrier FA.2, Airfix 1/72

Introduction: One of the advantages of building in 72nd scale is that kits are small and cheap enough to allow me to build aircraft that I’m “kind of” interested in (basically every airplane ever made). As an example, I picked up [...]

Frog 1/72 Fairey Barracuda Mk. II

This was a project that started as "I'll just do a little clean-up on this old kit," and turned into a major project. I'm only posting the finished project pics here, but for details, especially the interior construction, you [...]
