Here's some photo's of one of my latest, an Accurate Miniatures 1/48 Mustang 1a converted into a Mustang Mk 1 at the time of the Dieppe raid. It's AG470, RU*M as flown by F/O Hollis Hills (an American) flying with 414 Sqdn, RCAF when he scored t[...]
An older boxing of this venerable kit. The decals were very brittle and gave me some problems. Otherwise, it turned out better than the last one I did around 1973!
Here is my last completion. A Fw 190 A8/R2 from 11./Jg3.
The pilot was Willy Maximowitz, and this aircraft was based at Dreux, 50 miles in the west of Paris, not far from were I live now.
This is the Tamiya Model In Quarter Inch [...]
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.

This wee kit almost built itself. ~Everything fitted and only a minor amount of Mr. Dissolved Putty was required for the wing edges.
I wasn't certain what the interior cockpit colour should be so went with RLM66.
Painted with Colourc[...]
A friend of mine gave me 2 of these kits because he was not going to build them, the fitting of the parts was ok, but the kit is poor on details.
I decided to start a cool project by building both kits at the same time, one Out of the Box, and [...]
Here is an older build of the FW-190A-5 of Uffz Bernhard Kunze 1/JG.1. I used the decals from Eagle Cals #83. Some research prompted me to do the spinner in white, rather than yellow - I can’t remember now what source
This was a co[...]
