On This Day…November 13th.

The HMS Ark Royal was torpedoed on the 3rd November, 1941 by German submarine U-81 just off Gibraltar in the Med where she had been engaged in reinforcing Malta's defences. Remarkably she was lost with the death of just one crew. The aircraft ca[...]

From the Cockpit

When I was on the road with Collings I shot hours of video footage. The GoPro camera really opened new avenues of filming. I haven't posted many videos, more or less a lack of time to edit, but I'll slowly add more as time permits. The first vid[...]

In praise of the ‘hassle-free’ kit

Hey folks... so this is a Tamiya 1:48 Mustang and as such requires very little in the way of explanation or comment from me. However I would crave your collective indulgence for just a moment or two... Over the years I believe I've built about [...]

Hasegawa/Italeri Mustang 1/48

Hello, felllas. This is my attempt at Hasegawa’s 1/48 Mustang. Boxed by Italeri, it comes with an attractive decal sheet depicting 4 RAF Mustangs, and being a s****r for a sharkmouth aircraft, that is the one I chose. There is no way a P-51 do[...]

P-51D Mustang “Little India”

This kit is from Airfix it's a 1/48 scale. It was really easy to build. The decals was not very good so I painted lightning and black bands myself. I do a very hard weathering for fun 😆. That all hope you will like my first ww2 model.

Tamiya 1:48 RAF Mustang Mk.III

I had originally planned to build the kit´s clone, ICM/Revell´s Mustang Mk.III, but after getting frustrated with the warped fuselage halves, I decided to get the real thing. The Tamiya kit was a pleasure to build, everything fitted perfectly. I[...]

On This Day…October 26th.

A momentous day for iModelers. One of the truly great fighters of World War II, the P-51 was first flown today on 26 October 1940. At Mines Field, Los Angeles, California (now, Los Angeles International Airport), test pilot Vance Breese took the[...]

Mustang Exhaust

For me, one of the most intimidating aspects of building a Mustang is the exhaust trail. Merlin's don't really put out black "soot"...they discolor the surrounding metal into a beautiful rainbow with a touch of lead deposits, giving a light grey[...]

Roadtrip Flyby: The Erickson Aircraft Collection

The Erickson Aircraft Collection Museum is located at the Madras Airport, a 45 minute drive north of Bend, Oregon on Hwy 26 near the intersection of Hwy 97N. The collection was originally founded by Jack Erickson of sky crane and aerial firefigh[...]

Hobbycraft 1:32 Mustang MkIa

A commission build complete earlier this year. Not a bad kit, but at 1:32 it is really lacking in detail in the cockpit...very basic indeed! The pilot figure was added from aftermarket. I had to reshape the carburettor intake as the kit offering[...]
