Just arrived. Tore into it like a ravening wolf.
A more detailed review will be up at M2 next week. But right off, the surface detail is amazing, more petite even than the recent Fw-190 and Tempest, if such is possible. For those who say "yeah,[...]
It has been a while, but just finished my 1/72 P-51-D Mustang from Airfix. This is the kit with their new tooling and it's a very nice kit to work on. Tolerances are tight and I managed to build it without a single blob of filler. With exeption [...]
Hi Builders, I've been lurking for a few months now and thoroughly enjoying the site. I figured I'd jump in with both feet today and share this diminutive Mustang I completed in January. This is Minicraft's P-51D in 1/144 scale. I had finish[...]
It was decided by Innis that our next project would be a Mustang, but an RAF one. I had a couple of Mustangs picked up from Aldi, but no RAF decals. I managed to get some cheaply but they were for a Mustang III.

A series of well photographed Emil Bf 109E3 of 4.JG26.
‘W3+-‘ (WNr 779) was force landed in France on 1st June 1940. Pretty clear a lot of the infantry were intrigued and excited at the find.
The ‘selfie generation was alive and well[...]
Nice set of Spitfire references for weathering.
