Eduard A6M2 Type 0, Model 21, 1/48. 'Saburō Sakai's Longest Mission'.

On August 7th 1942, Ace Pilot Saburō Sakai underwent his most legendary mission and would narrowly survive being shot in the head by the rear gunner of a Dauntless dive bomber. Escorting Japanese bombers to Guadalcanal, Sakai first [...]

Tamiya F4U-1A, 1/48. Silver Sally.

This is a build I started a few months ago as a side project and have slowly got round to finishing this last week. When I was researching for a previous Corsair build I came across this very unique one off scheme and knew I had to add it [...]

Tamiya P-47D-30-RE, 'The Bubbletop over Asia'

After a couple of single builds I wanted to get back to the dual combo way of building kits, and so what better than a bubbletop to go along with the razorback P-47? Having completed a bare-metal Mustang just before the Thunderbolts I [...]

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 [...]

1/35 M4A3E8 Sherman Easy Eight by Tamiya

It’s done! This is the Tamiya M4A3E8 Sherman Easy Eight (European Theater) in 1/35 scale. First of all, this is another great kit by Tamiya. There’s really no problem to build smoothly. The rubber tracks are good too. but personally [...]

Bf.109G-10, 1:48 HasegawaYugoslav Partisan Squadron 1945

You know the problem of those never finished box-queens, kits that you start and then put back in the box and forget about? They beckon you every time you open your stash, yet you just ignore them and go for a virgin kit. Well, I have a [...]

Zoukei-Mura Kyushu J7W1 Shinden, 1/48. The 'Magnificent Lightning'.

There are many aircraft out there that subscribe to the 'What If?' idea, but none I find as interesting as the Shinden. Ever since I discovered this machine as a kid it's been one of my favourites, so Zoukei Mura's offering of the aircraft [...]

Trumpeter's 1/48 C-47 Skytrain "D-Day Mini Whiskey 7"

Where do I start...Whiskey 7, or 43-30652. A 1943 Douglas C-47 Skytrain that served as the leader of Serial #18 on D-Day, according to records with the 37th TCS, 316th TCG. No actual photographs where her tail number can be seen exist [...]

1/35 Meng - Sherman Jumbo

I lost count on how many Shermans I've built. But, it was a true pleasure to build this kit. Good fits and well-designed. The movable tracks are, of course, troublesome to build. But I gotta say it paid off with a more natural and better [...]
