Year of the Cat, Mirage 2000-C Tigermeet 2003. Revell 1/72

Yes there is my second build for the Year of the Cat group build. Finaly got this French cat ready for action. It took some extra work to get this kit nicely done as this is a Revell re-box from the original Italeri kit. Colours I used are from[...]

Year of the Cat

OK... They are sharks teeth... but the AVG was also known as the "Flying Tigers" so I agree it may be a stretch. But so it goes... This is the superb Airfix P-40B. What can I say about all of the new Airfix kits that has not been said. They are [...]

Year of the Cat

This is an out of the box Eduard kit of the F6F-3. This is a very nice kit with the exceptions of the decals. I had a problem with some of them wandering and warping all over the place. I managed to save the significant decals for this particula[...]

Year of the Cat

this is the Hobby Boss F8F-1 straight from the box. A great build and I think the Hobby Boss kit is a wonderful kit of their aircraft. I used the kit decals and they represent an A/C of VF-3 flown by Lt A.M.Granat in 1946.

Year of The Cat Group Build: Grumman Martlet Mk III – Hobby Boss 1/48 Wildcat F4F-3A

When Louis announced the group all those months ago, and with its closing date being quite some way distant, I decided to go for three builds. Three kits whose fates were already planned (although the ‘109 E7 Trop’ took a few twists and turns al[...]

Year of the Cat Group Build: BF 109 E4/7 Trop, Tamiya 1/48, ‘Yellow 6’ – Hans Joachim Marseille – in ‘Leopard Camo’

The mentality of those whose families fought and suffered on the ‘right side of history’ is often, understandably, to automatically consign those fighting on the other side, to a pigeon hole that does not allow for admiration. During this buil[...]

Year of the Cat Group Build. Monogram 1/48 F9F Panther from The Bridges at Toko-Ri

I've been wanting to do a Panther for a while. I had a stillborn attempt back when I was in high school when the kit first came out. I was impressed at how well it went together and have always wanted to try again. I had a few troubles with thi[...]
