Tamiya 1/72 Spitfire Mk Ia. I have had this kit in the stash for quite a while. It was time to build it especially since I did not have a Mk Ia in the collection. This plane was flown by Sqn Ldr Rupert "Lucky" Leigh of No. 66 Sqn from April to O[...]
Cheating on my darling Luftwaffe and having a passionate affair with the Spitfire. This is the Profipak reissue of the early Mk. IX. I think I've finally built something that truly qualifies for out-of-the-box! A very fine kit- Fit and surfa[...]
This is MJ966, flown by Denys Boudard of No. 340 Free French Squadron (code GW), 1944. The squadron was moved from England – where it provided covering fire for the Normandy landings – to France, Belgium and back again. Apart from all its wear a[...]
The Spitfire is complete! This is the new tool 1/48 Tamiya Spitfire Mk. I. The first completion for 2020, let's hope I can keep up with this pace! Just over four weeks from start to finish. Some oils, exhaust stain and a few water colour pencil [...]
Happy new year to all (with a little delay)
Here are my builds completed in 2019. I can say that I am more productive than the previous year. I hope this happens in 2020 too.
1- 1/32 Hasegawa Junkers Ju-87D5
2- 1/48 ProModele[...]
I’m not going to go into a ton of detail on this build since there are hundreds of WIP builds on this bird out there, but to say it’s many mini-kits in one, is an understatement. After some research I chose Johnnie Johnson’s version to replicat[...]
Since model-building is sort of half-work/half-play for me, I end up doing more models than most. These aren't all the models built, but they are the models I liked for various reasons...
Airfix: I guess if you build four of a kit, it means you[...]
I've finished my Airfix 1/48 Spitfire FR XIVe, completed as a 402 Squadron (RCAF) machine, March, 1945. As I understand it, 402 was one of two Squadron's to operate the "bubbletop" before the end of the war in Europe. I found the Airfix kit to[...]
Most probably the last new one by my dad for 2019.
Started with an ICM kit but switched to a Hasegawa kit with decals from AML, superfabric seatbelts from Eduard, painted with Gunze H306 FS36270 for the underside and Tamiya XF-82 RAF Ocean Gray [...]
My fourth iteration of this kit (with one more left in the stash while I try to decide which markings/version to do). Did I mention I love this kit?
t's a strange but interesting fact that the only "built for that specific powerplant"[...]
