This aircraft is not my usual choice for a build. However, I built it is because it was for a club competition - "Build a B@#%@#%". The name of the competition comes from the fact that everyone has to build an old and difficult [...]
Here’s the other half (I posted the Bf- 109 earlier) of the duo kit from Round 2 ne Lindbergh ne Hawk Models repop of the Spitfire Mk. 22. Lots of rivets, no landing gear or cockpit detail and lots of memories of my uncle and I making [...]
Those of you of a certain age (like me) no doubt made several of these old Hawk Models Bf-109s. I could always talk Mom into buying a few of the old 1/72 kits on a trip to Gemco for a few cents.

My original plan was to build this kit to depict a Red Arrows aircraft. Somehow I lost the plot and ended up using the kit decals depicting a Swiss Airforce aircraft. I liked the red and white paint scheme set off with the Swiss cross [...]
