Captured Bf109 G-10 (Mark 1 Models)

https://r-t-c.co.uk/kits/sharing_images/InShot_20210403_173703615.jpg I was browsing the Kremlin archives, late one snowy Russian winter night, when I came across this previously unseen photograph of a G-10. Attached was this short extract from a propaganda bulletin. "Here we meet the brave co...

MiGs in Ethiopia - Eduard MiG-21/Academy MiG-23

This was for the Britmodeller Africa GB. It all started when, in a pique of enthusiastic eBaying I ended up with one of the vintage Academy MiG-23s with cockpit insert. I knew it was going to be bad, but did not realise just how bad until I unboxed the kit. https://r-t-c.co.uk/kits/sharing_images/IM...

Re: Mitsubishi Ki 21 Sally

Lovely work and great idea to source the decals from the other kit, looks like a really good finish on the model.

Since it was my first build of one of the Spanish models I didn't really do any adaptations except to adjust the struts and add rigging. The thicknes...

Re: Crown Bf 110

Hello,

Welcome to the forum 😁

Good work even getting this together, those old Crown kits can feel like more trouble than they are worth sometimes.

Re: Crusty

Those NATO codenames sure are odd choices, a friend suggested they were often deliberately weird to mock the Soviet efforts.

Flogger and Frogfoot spring to mind!

The Mirages look great, which kit are they from?
