Japanese Spitfire

Recently I completed an Arii Spitfire Mk VIII. The MkVIII is my favorite version of the Spitfire and as fate would have it, there was this one waiting in my stash of unbuilt kits. It was the first time I had made extensive use of paper masks for[...]

1/72 Italeri Chinook HC.1

RAF Chinook used during the Falkland War built from the Italeri CH-47(HC.1) kit no 064. Built straight from the box, but modified some details according to the photos I found on the net of this Chinook. Still there might be some mistakes especia[...]

1/72 Matchbox Provost (Pk-30)

I built this from the original Matchbox kit (2 colour) that was issued in the mid 1970's. I don't know if it was ever issued under Revell (it seems not). The decals had the usual residue of the Matchbox decals of the era when applying them, but [...]

Airfix 1/48 Spitfire PR. XIX

Hello iModeler! This is my recently finished Airfix Spitfire PR. XIX. Although the interferon detail was not as crisp as the newly tooled Airfix Mk. V Spitfire, it was still a fun kit and went together rather nicely. Build was OOB, paint was [...]

1/72 Airfix Phantom FGR.2 1435 flight, RAF Mount Pleasant 1991

G’day all. Another Phantom!!! An annoying start followed by a pleasant build for the most part, I’m happy to say that this was an enjoyable project. The kit is built as XV466 ‘D’ Desperation while assigned to 1435 flight at RAF Mount Pleasant[...]

Wartime Spitfire Mk.XVI Model Build – 1/48 Scale Eduard Kit

I had this Mk.XVI kit after buying it initially to supply parts to my mammoth Mk.XIV high-back Spitfire kit bash project (found here: A relatively straightforward build notwithstanding the usual fiddly nature of Eduard Spitfires - more than mad[...]

3 Spitfires to make 1: Spitfire Mk.XIVe High-Back Conversion from Eduard and Airfix 1/48 kits

As something of a Coronavirus lockdown special effort, I finally did something I've been thinking about attempting for months and which others including Tom Cleaver have done previously: A Mk.XIV high-back conversion kit bash. I built this Mk.XI[...]

Following the Thunderbolt,here comes a Mustang,this time from the famous Polish squadron,one of the many that served so well the Allied cause...Tamiya 1/48 kit,hope you like it...

Clostermann’s Tempest in 1/48

Eduard's excellent but slightly tricky-to-build quarter scale Hawker Tempest Mk.V finished as Pierre Clostermann's mount at the end of the Second World War. The kit is a bit fiddly by Eduard standards but fit is generally good. The only real d[...]

Revell 1/48 Typhoon commemorating the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain

This is Revell's Tiger Meet kit and Caracal's decals for the special version of the Typhoon. The kit is a bit of a pig to put together, the intakes are a particular annoyance. But, plenty of test fitting and planning ahead meant it went togethe[...]
