Tamiya P-51D Mustang, 1/48. 'The Red Tails'.

A Mustang was an aircraft missing from my collection until a few months ago. I decided to go with Tamiya's rendition of the Mustang over Eduard's more detailed version as at the time I fancied a quick and simple build to get the creative [...]

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 [...]

Diamond Nose...1/48 North American P-51D Mustang, 356th FG USAAF

Built in 2013, this was the third Merlin Mustang my dad built, but the first he did correct, regarding the wings. Back then it was new info for us that the P-51 had sealed/filled panel lines on the wings. Besides that the wings were [...]

Tamiya P-38G Lightning, 1/48. 'Miss Virginia'

My first of the Operation Vengeance trio in 1/48 was this Lightning, an amazing kit and probably the best engineered model I've made to date. There isn't a lot of negatives to say about this kit, in fact whilst I completed this model in [...]

Under New Management...1/48 Focke-Wulf Fw190A-5, 325th FG USAAF

Here´s another captured Würger. Hasegawa kit with Karaya Decals, built over 5 years ago. Bird captured in Italy.

Lightning White 33

Here's my take on Tamiya's 1/48 scale P-38 Lightning model. The kit gives you the choice of building either Miss Virginia (P-38 G) or White 33 (P-38F). Despite the historical significance of Miss Virginia and the mission to shoot-down [...]

I Like Jugs, Pt. 5

Here’s my interpretation of Gabby Gabreski’s P-47D. This is the Tamiya kit, one of the best engineered kits I’ve ever had the pleasure to make. Honestly, I don’t know why I don’t have a half dozen more in my collection. Oh, [...]
