Tamiya Ki-61 with ‘that’ colour scheme

This was a quick build of Tamiya's beautifully engineered Ki-61-Id Hien kit in 1/48 scale which I bought on a work trip to Tokyo years ago and have only just got around to building now that lockdowns are over and I can access my workshop again! [...]

Tamiya 1/48 F4U-1A “Birdcage” Corsair

Having only ever built mostly revell, and one academy, Corsairs, I never realized the quality I was missing out on with the kits from Tamiya. So when my chance at christmas came to get one as a gift, I was more than happy to build it. And so I d[...]

North American F6-D

Presented for your consideration is my build of Tamiya’s P-51 D/K Mustang in 1/32 scale. This is the first model that I’ve built in this scale since I was a teenager. Back then, to teenager me, the bigger the model, the better. Of course in thos[...]

Airfix 1/48 Hawker Sea Fury FB.11 in Cuban Guise

Hi There, I picked this up recently and got to building quite quickly. It all fitted very well with very little filler used. I fancied doing a Cuban version. Would this version have had The Cuban Flag Tailplane, Bombs and the wing fold utilised.[...]
