1/48 Me-410B-1/U4, Stab II/Zg26 by Revell-Monogram ProModeller

The Me-410 Hornisse was a follow on to the ill-fated Me-210 heavy fighter, which almost destroyed Messerschmitt's reputation due to its horrendous handling qualities. The design was intended as a Heavy Fighter, light bomber and reconnaissance ai[...]

Heinkel He 280 in 1/48

This is my Eduard 1/48 He 280 prototype jet fighter. The Heinkel He 280 was the first aircraft designed solely as a fighter to make a jet powered flight. It also has the dubious distinction of being responsible for the first pilot ejection in h[...]

MPM’s 1/48 He177 – Heinkel’s ‘Griffon’

Well, another plus side to having time on my hands at present is being able to post (perhaps too many!) more of my builds. This one was completed about a year and a half ago and I certainly made a better job of it this time round than the first[...]

1/72 Heller Alpha Jet Kit No_257

I have been away from scale modeling since 1990's - I can't remember the last kit I actually built. Getting close to retirement, I figured I better make sure I still have the patience to get back into it. This wasn't my first kit getting back to[...]

Auntie’s trip to the Aegean

My second offering in as many days... this is the venerable Revell 1/48 scale Ju52 kit, with accessory resin floats/white metal struts, resin engine nacelle cover, and fuel tank, accessories and some scratch-building thrown in for good measure. [...]

Me-410 Hornet, 1/48 Pro-Modeler

This is an older build, that is totally out of the box. I know the flaws of the kit but all that aside I remember it as a generally satisfactory build and there is no mistaking what it is. The fit was generally good, and overall went together [...]

Arado Ar 234 Blitz Bomber

This is an older build that I was inspired to post after seeing Tom Rogers great build earlier today. While his has a great story behind it, mine doesn't. This is the Monogram/Revell kit and is built basically out of the box, except for the ad[...]

Focke-Wulf Fw 190A-8: The Butcher Bird

A straightforward build of Eduard's 1/48 scale FW 190A-8 finished in the colours of Blue 4 of JG.5 stationed at Eismeer in Norway in April of 1945. This model rounds off my late-war Luftwaffe 1/48 scale collection. As ever with modern Eduard [...]

1/48 Scale Macchi C.205 Veltro “Luftwaffe”

This is a 1/48 scale Macchi by Hasegawa that I got at a yard sale for 2.00 a few years back. While I waited for the mailman to bring my next big project I decided to build this to cut the boredom. Kit was simple, fit was pretty good, detail was [...]

Late War Bf-109G-10 in 1/48 Scale

This is Eduard's ProfiPack series Messerschmitt Bf-109G-10 as built by the Wiener Neustädter Flugzeugwerke (WNF) factory with the enlarged wooden tail. My example has been finished as a very late war JG/51 aircraft 'Rosemarie' which was roughly [...]
