Otaki 1/48 P-47D Thunderbolt

This is my Otaki 1/48 P-47D Thunderbolt that I built in 1986. This is a bit of a kit bash using Monogram's P-47D cowling and engine and Hawk's P-47D Curtiss Electric Propeller. Some details were added into the cockpit area, fuel pressure lines a[...]

Hello all, Got to know about this very informative website from a colleague modeler. Impressive results which you all are presenting. After 35 years rediscovered this hobby which I had when I was an air scout. During those early years I built[...]

Arii / Otaki Fw-190 A8 1/48 (Dual Build)

A friend of mine gave me 2 of these kits because he was not going to build them, the fitting of the parts was ok, but the kit is poor on details. I decided to start a cool project by building both kits at the same time, one Out of the Box, and [...]
