I can't rate this kit highly enough. It was an absolute dream to build, and I managed to finish it in less than a month, in no small part due to the fact that I only once had to trim something to fit (I took about .5 of a millimetre from the top[...]
This is the new Airfix kit built pretty much out of the box with the exception of Classic Airframes decals and Eduard seat belts added. I also had to drill a hole and fabricate an antenna post on the top of the rudder. Odd that this was missing[...]
This is an old kit, the Special Hobby 1/48 that I started to build in 2017 before seeing the first pictures of the future Airfix in the same scale. I chose to continue my model by trying to raise it to the level of the future Airfix. There was e[...]

The Shagbat is a relatively difficult airplane to build. Every parts have it's own direction - the dihedral is different on the lower an[...]
