Airfix 1/72 Harrier GR 3

This is the first of my "what if" F-111 K's. The registration is the actual first one in the block set aside for the F-111 after TSR2 was cancelled. I have painted her as the first one to be handed over at a ceremony at General Dynamics factory

Two shiny “little friends”: here comes the second one.

I did chose to build a RAF Mustang Mk. III, the decals have been taken from the kit. I hope you like the outcome and the pictures!

Tamiya 1/48 Spitfire Mk. I

Hello iModeler! Here is my recently finished Tamiya Spitfire build 100% out of the box. The fit and engineering of this kit was awesome, and makes it extremely enjoyable to build. I would gladly build several more!

Airbus Atlas C1
