Heinkel He 115. Special Hobby 1/48th.

It's taken 2 years (on and off) to complete and my wife has learned lots of new words! The kit has been a real pain to build with lots of issues to overcome BUT I think it's been worth it 😎.

Phonix D.I Kriegsmarine Puly 1918

Supermarine Walrus MK I (1/48 Special Hobby)

This is an old kit, the Special Hobby 1/48 that I started to build in 2017 before seeing the first pictures of the future Airfix in the same scale. I chose to continue my model by trying to raise it to the level of the future Airfix. There was e[...]
