‘What if’ Soviet Mech Diorama!

The first diorama I built after getting back into the hobby. The mech is scratchbuilt and my first attempt at doing so. The Bf 109 is a kit which I built when I was very young so I restored the aircraft but in a crashed, "shot down" state. The d[...]

ME 109E-4

I just bought a Tamiya 109E off of ebay. I thought it would be fun to go back in to my archives and find my photos of the 109 at Thunder Over Michigan a few years ago. This was Russel's restored E that I believe was recently sold and is now in E[...]

Revell 1/32 – Bf 109 G6

I’ve done a lot of improvements (whell bay, landing gear, engine, engine compartment, panel lines, riveting…) The cockpit is almost completely an Eduard kit. Although it was for Revell, it wasn´t for this particulary kit, so I had to made extens[...]

Tamiya 1/48 Bf-109E-7

The Bf-109E-7 was the airplane the Luftwaffe should have had at the beginning of the Battle of Britain, since it was the first Bf-109 to be plumbed to carry a 300-liter drop tank, which increased its range from 660 km (410 mi)to 1,325 km (820 m[...]

Airfix 5120 1:48 Messerschmitt Bf 109E-4

My first 1:48 Airfix kit, it was an absolute joy to build, except for the canopy, which had an awful fit. Parts also fitted very tight in some areas, so they had to be sanded to get a good fit. I used the kit decals to make Adolf Galland´s Bf 1[...]

Academy 1:48 Bf 109E-3 “Heinz Bär” boxing

This was the first kit I built after a 4 year hiatus in model building. Its the Academy reboxing of the Hobbycraft kit, which at the same time looks very similar to the Hasegawa version. The only trouble I had with this kit was that the tailplan[...]

Hans Joachim Marseille’s Bf 109G-2/Trop

This kit came straight from the box of the Academy 1:48 "Bf 109G-6/G-2 JG27" boxing. It´s a rebox of the Hobbycraft Bf 109G-6, with fuselage halves for a Bf 109G-6, so you have to make some cutting for the retractable tailwheel opening if you wi[...]

Eduard 1/48 Bf-109G-10 (MTT-Regensburg)

Jorg Czypionka Hunts Mosquitos: The ranks of "Great Luftwaffe Aces" do not include my friend Leutnant Jorg Czypionka. "You have to understand,I joined the Luftwaffe because I loved airplanes and flying, not for the combat. All the choices I ma[...]

Messerschmitt Bf109 E7/4 Trop. II/JG27 North Afrika

Hi guys! This is the Tamiya kit, 1/48th. Belonged to II/JG27 in North Afrika in 1942. A good model, but being Tamiya, I expected more from the decals. A bit thick and difficult to fight with them. Hope you like it, Sifredo Cubas

1/48 Tamiya Messerschmitt Pre-Production Me-262 “S” (Werknummer 130006), “VI + AF”

Here's another article that I hope you enjoy....................... This time it's based on Tamiya's excellent Me-262 in 1/48 scale. This model was started as I was "hitting the wall" and getting bogged down with research on the group of 4 Ta[...]
