    These are some of my completed airplane kits... I like to build older kits, so you can find in this thread something strange... :lol:

    The first is an old Focke Wulf FW190 by Matchbox, converted to long range escort/bomber duty with a pair of auxiliary fuel tanks from older Revell '190 kits

    This one is a Macchi 202 from Frog (re-boxed in Matchbox markings ^_^), with a patchwork livery

    One of the worst kits of all time, The Pioneer2 Spitfire MkVc... too short, too slim, no wheel wells, terrible propeller (I used another one from an anonimous donor kit ^_^)
    I used it to experiment how miniature painting techniques can be applied to model warplanes (the picture is a lot on the blue side...)

    That is a real nice collection you got there. The one I like the most is the 109 in Italian Dress.

    Thanks to all, I'll post more pictures in the future...

    Absolutely! Anything larger than 1/72 scale push me out of my workspace (and then out of my home! :lol: )
