Review: F.M 1/48 Halifax Mk.III Review

Handley Page Halifax II

1/48 FM Handley Page Halifax Mk III

Handley-Page Halifax GRII – 1/32nd scale vacform

This was a year long project and started life as a very basic vacform (the old ID Models' kit now marketed as Tigger Models) and involved a great deal of scratch building. Kits such as these come as a blank canvas - the shell of the main [...]
