Conceived as an interim, born as a twin: F-82G Twin Mustang

Are there "bi-fuselages" as well as bi-planes? No, this linguistically unattractive term has not become established in the history of aviation; it is more commonly referred to as a "twin". These designs are rare in the [...]

Korean War GB: Lockheed F-80C Shooting StarMonogram 1/48

1/48 ICM B-26C "Invader"

F-51D, 12th FBS, 18thFBG, Korea 1952Forgotten war Group Build,1/72 Airfix

Another Airfix 1/72 gem of a kit. The fit is great, as are the decals. I did the Korean war selection kit decals. Which must have been a popular plane as Tamiya's and Italeri's 1/72 also offers the same bird in their 1/72 kits. As great [...]

MiG-15bis “Fagot” – 17th IAP, 303rd IAD, Red 139, Cap. Bytchkov (Korean War)

Bonjour chers imodelers, This is my rendition of the MiG-15, under the colours of the North Korean Air Force early 50s, but piloted by Russians, as everybody knows. The Tamiya model is almost perfect despite its age. I used Metallic [...]
