  1. Thanks for the positive feedback. @Tbolt, Great tips, will try to incorporate this the next time. Appreciate the specific nature of your help, very useful. Also, the aerial is a mig jimenez elastic thread, quite a handful to handle, but easy to tighten up right. Isak
  2. Hi all Here is a model I finished a couple of months ago, an Eduard Bf 109 F4 from the royal class boxing. one of the biggest challenges was to choose a scheme, but my choice was this one stationed in Petsamo, Finland, because I like the way it looked and Finland is a neighbor country to Norway.

  3. Thanks for all the kind replies, it's really appreciated. Apart from the few issues mentioned, it's actually a quite nice kit. Isak

  10. Hi all. Wanted to show off my latest build, a Hawker Typhoon from Airfix. The kit was really nice with nice detail and went together fast with no problems, except its tiny size. After some consultancy from my kids, the chosen scheme was this pretty cool looking and colorful shark mouth from 245 Squadron, 2nd Tactical Air Force based in Germany and RAF Warmwell, Dorset in June.August 1945. If anyone know anything interesting about this aircraft, please share. The kit was painted with Mission Models acrylic throughout, and they worked really well. I used the black primer as a base for
