    1/48 Italeri Junkers Ju-87 R2 Stuka

    For my next project I was looking to build a model almost out of the box. For this I chose a Ju-87 by Italeri from the stash. Whilst I say "OOB" I am sure that some minor scratching and enhancements will creep into the build, but the aim is to keep this one as simple as possible. I'd like to...

    Eduard BF109 G6/AS in Post War Finnish Marking

    This is my first Eduard. I like the kit in general, but I dislike the idea to fix the prop unlike the Tamiya poly cap or Revell stick rod method. Detachable/rotatable prop is good for transportation purpose. I wish Tamiya make Bf 109G variant, but as you know Tamiya seems to be not interested...

    1/48 Special Hobby Reggiane Re.2005 Sagittario

    Next kit on the to do list is the Re.2005 from Special Hobby. I don't have any add-ons for this kit so it will be mostly OOB with a few bits and pieces scratched together where necessary. It's my first Special Hobby kit so I don't really know what to expect quality wise. The kit components look...

    1/48 Hobby Craft Boeing P-26A

    I am yet to finish the Tamiya Corsair (thread in this forum) but cold weather and an impatience to get this particular kit underway means I have already made a start on this. Firstly - some details on the kit. It's a pretty old kit (early 1990's) and the quality of the moldings is reasonable...

    1/48 Tamiya F4U-1 Bird Cage Corsair

    Now I've called the Bf-109B as finished I have started on the next kit - Tamiya's Bird Cage Corsair. I won't go into too much about the kit - it is quite well represented by other members. I have decided to bling it up a little bit with a QuickBoost engine and some selected bits from the Eduard...

    Decals For Bf109E-3... Looking For Something Different

    I have an 1/48 Eduard Weekend Edition Bf109E-3. Being a Weekend Edition it has one decal/color scheme. I am not one to do the usual stuff, so I would like to do something a little different. Can anyone point me to some decal sets that might offer some good alternatives to the norm?

    1/48 Esci Henschel Hs 123

    As I may have mentioned in another thread, I only do 1/48th aircraft, and only those types flown by Hans-Werner Lerche, a Luftwaffe test pilot. Last year I started a second-hand Esci kit of the Hs 123. I didn't realise that there were a few issues with the model (some interesting warping of the...

    Need info: B-17G Nine O Nine, the original

    Good Afternoon Everybody: I'm getting ready to do a 1/48 Nine-O-Nine and I am trying to make it as accurate to the real one as possible, not the one flying right now (sorry Collings Foundation). I have found plenty of photos, some even in color, but there is still one area that eludes me, and...

    1/48 Dora Wings Messerschmitt Bf-109B

    For my first effort back into modelling in many years I thought it best to stick to an OOB build (at least as much as possible). I found this kit at the LHS and have always been keen to do an early 109 – preferably dressed in Spanish Civil War colours. Having made a start on the kit I found the...

    MikroMir (МикроМир) 1/48 kits of the soviet UT-1 training/ aerobatic plane.

    Being looking around the net I have found a couple of MicroMir (МикроМир) 1/48 kits of the soviet UT-1 ( Яковлев УТ-1 ) training/aerobatic plane. All kits are of the same set of sprues basically. Also there is a PE set included. The differences are just decal markings and the PE sets ( depending...
