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 [...]
This is part two of my new series on the Battle of Britain (which has just started with part 1 - the Spitfire - in the new edition of Model Airplane International, out now). This is the superb Airfix Ju87 B-1 Stuka, built as an aircraft from 7.[...]
I've just added the final touches to Airfix's classic 1/24th scale Stuka B-2. I've finished it as a machine from 3/St.G2 based in Northern France, August 1940.
A great kit to build, and despite its age it's crammed full of detail, has some love[...]
I will use the 1/48 new tool Airfix B-2/R-2 kit for this build. By the way, I was surprised that this kit has no coverage here (at least I couldn’t find any).
I also have some extra goodies I may use.
The kit was released in 2017 and received [...]
This is my first post and will be the first part of a series of articles ( at least I hope it will work that way) documenting my build of the Ju 87R-2 flown by Major Walter Sigel Commanding Officer (Grupenkomandeur) from I./St.G 3 in the colours[...]
I dont have any models to build at the moment. I've finished all major projects. But I was looking through my model pics, and I cannot believe how much I've improved. Below I have two spitfires and two stukas, and they could not be more differen[...]
I liked building this, but the canopy gave me nightmares. Well, it is an old kit, soooo...... but it is finished and nice. I'm glad I did a good job on it.
