The Badercane

‘The RAF needs men, not schoolboys.’ Douglas Bader's Commandant had admonished him after he crashed at Woodley Aerodrome in 1931, having tried to roll his Bristol Bulldog at "naught feet." Needless to say, the biplane became a ball of twisted m[...]

Tempest II in an extra large Teapot

THE KIT The Tempest II kit which I purchased is the Hi-Tech version which contains various resin and photo-etch parts plus the original plastic. There is a lot to unpack in this kit as there are well over 300 parts in a grey plastic on nine pla[...]

1:48 Hasegawa Hurricane Mk.IID “Tank Buster”

The Battle of Britain proved that the Hawker Hurricane Mk.I’s days as a front line fighter were numbered. Along came the improved Hurricane Mk IIA series in 1942 with the ability to use newly developed interchangeable wings. The airframe’s new r[...]

Revell AG Hunter

Another one of my older projects to archive, here’s my 1/72 Revell AG Hawker Hunter Mk. 58. I think I made this one between 2008 and 2010. I do remember the outer wing leading edge extensions were molded with the upper wing half and needed a l[...]

Here’s my Airfix 1/72 Hawker Harrier GR 3. I bought this kit to eventually add one to my collection of RAF fighters, but I was never a big fan of the type. To me the Harrier just didn’t look right. Boy how my attitude has changed since putting[...]

The postman just delivered my kit of the AMG 1/48 Hawker Hart (which looks like it can be done as every version of this airplane except the Osprey, which had a larger vertical fin and rudder). This kit is beautiful! Fully-detailed interior, su[...]

Airfix 1/48 Hunter F. 6

The Hawker Hunter is one of, if not the, most graceful looking aircraft ever to fly so I was very excited when I first learned that Airfix was going to release one in 1/48 scale. So excited, in fact, that I ended up ordering three: two F. 6’s an[...]

Hasegawa 1/48 Hurricane Mk. IID

The Hawker Hurricane was surely the backbone of RAF fighter command in WW11... though it never received it's rightful place in history, it served with distinction from the Battle of Britain, where it was flown with great expertise by the likes[...]

Airfix 1/24 Hawker Typhoon IB “Car Door”

Hello all. This is my second article. This time I would like to show off the completed project. This is "Tiffi" ​​Hawker Typhoon in large scale 1/24. The model worth recommending. Over 500 parts, beautifully mapped surface of the hull and wings.[...]
