Greetings to all members,
This is another unboxing review of the battle of Britain gift set which includes not two not three but four aircraft that were involved in that battle which are the Spitfires, Hawker Hurricane's, Stuka dive bombers and[...]
This is my interpretation of Hubert Polz's JU-87R-2 Stuka while stationed at Tmimi, Libya in 1941.
There are only a few (4, I believe) photo's of this aircraft, so a lot of the scheme is speculative (even the color of the snake is disputed!) I'[...]
This is the 1/48 Airfix Junkers JU-87B-1 Stuka. This was a World War II dive bomber use by Germany. The scheme is that of the Staffelkapitan, 4th Staffel, Stukageshwader 77. It represents how it looked in June 1940 in France. I detailed the airc[...]
From the dark mists of time, actually 2006:

This is my recent project, a classic WW2 warbird. Nice kit, everything went well. Unfortunately, the clear part, which would allow to build a full open canopy, came damaged beyond repair. It had a L shape hole right on the top. So, I had[...]
Here are some more pics of museum items under restoration you might find interesting.
Among them are some shots of the recovered Stuka, a T-33 almost restored to static status in SEA camo,
a Northrop BQM-74 Chukar target drone unde[...]
Here's my Revell 1/32 Junkers Stuka B-2, built about 12 years ago.
The Junkers Ju 87 or Stuka (from Sturzkampfflugzeug, "dive bomber") was a German dive bomber and ground-attack aircraft. Designed by Hermann Pohlmann, it first fle[...]
Unlike many for whom cockpits are a chore, I love building and detailing the pilots workplace.
First I had to decide if I use the Aires cockpit set 4026 intended for the Hasegawa kit or going with the kit parts. As my copy of the Aires set was [...]
