Airfix’s Hurricane in 1/72; Unsung Hero!

At the start of the year I went to IWM Duxford for Airfix’s Unsung Hero event and during that visit I picked up Airfix’s Hurricane – something I’d been meaning to pick up and buy for many many years. However, the Hurricane had always just eluded my grasp. My original plan was to do a…

Airfix F-35B 1/72 Starter Set

The F-35 is such a divisive aircraft. For some people it’s the crème de le crème. The future of manned combat aircraft. To other people, however, this is a disaster. Even though it’s combat effectiveness is being proven more and more, the legacy of it’s development and runaway costs have tainted the memory of many….

Yak-3 “Click Together” 1/72 Zvezda

I have not really built many Zvezda kits. In fact, for actually branded Zvezda kits – this is my first. The only kit I’ve built that I know of is the Italeri Su-47 that I built some time ago. For clarity as well, I had bought the paints and model from Russia prior to the…

Polish 7TP – Defence of Warsaw – First to Fight 1/72

For some reason the defence of Poland in my mind was an air affair due to the nature of the German Blitzkrieg. I had a massive gap in my personal knowledge banks and was unaware of the technology used by the Polish forces defending against Germany outside of their airforce. However, whilst browsing my local…
