  1. Hello all, Today I have the ancient FROG dh.60G Moth in 1/72, marked as an aircraft of the Belgian Air Force in the spring of 1940. Previously a civil machine, it was impressed at the start of the war. I used KORA decals for the first time, and can generally report favorably of them, but the red stripes that were supposed to go on the fuselage sides ended up tearing in several places and were thus binned. The only modifications I made to the kit were the addition of some interior framing (which is hardly visible now) and the addition of an exhaust pipe, sourced from a ZTS Models RWD-5.

  3. Gloster Gladiator MkI, 1 Escadrille, 1 Groupe, AĆ©ronautique Militaire Belge, Schaffer Airfield, Diest, Belgium. The Matchbox Gladiator was first introduced in 1972. It came in two colours of plastic, a bright red and a cream. Markings were provided for an inter-war RAF machine in silver. Being me, I built mine - acquired secondhand at a show about ten years ago - to represent a British Expeditionary Force Air Component aircraft sent to France in 1939. Since then, Airfix produced their new kit, of which I have an example built up to represent the sole RAF Gladiator squadron that saw
  4. Hi all here is my kit bashed High-backed spitfire MKXIVe Belgian Air Force in 1:48 In the markings of a no 2 SQD Spitfire SG-86/UR-H at Melsbroek airbase in the early fifties I used two AIRFIX kits for this conversion Their PR.XIX and their new low-backed MkXIV (A05119+A05135) I also used Eduard instrument panel and seatbelt set (644018) and Eduard Brassin wheels (648469) also I used Markings and roundels from Daco products (D4837) and AML Camouflage Masks (AMLM49025) Tamiya paints used throughout Thanks for looking and enjoy
  5. Images from the rather vast military museum in the centre of Brussels. The aircraft hall is impressive, but some of the machines are run down and desperately need attention, and a good clean.

  6. Just pulled this from the stash. Success rate has been a bit hit & miss in past blitzbuilds. Plan to build it in two 12hr session starting Saturday, finishing Sunday whilst following the; One Day Cricket final at Lords (Go Hampshire) The Giro The Monaco GP Indy 500 Super League Magic Weekend (Go Rhinos) Decision taken to complete as the Belgian option as it only has three main colours (Dark Green and Dark Brown over Aluminium) as opposed to the RAF option that uses 5.
  7. Built for a recent club competition, this is the 1/72 Revell F-16 finished off using Daco decals. I've had the decals in the stash for more years than I care to remember, but I'm pleased to report that they worked well enough to sneak this into third place. Standard walkaround shots : Thanks for looking. Mike
  8. Seen on July 21st, 2016, at their Beauvechain homebase, ready for the National Day flypast, some Belgian Air Component SIAI SF.260M/D Marchettis. Following a decision attributed to the - now just retired - Belgian Defence Chief of Staff, Air Force General G. Van Caelenberge, all the SF.260D (ST-40 to ST-48) are to receive a grey livery. These trainers are also operated by the HQ & Staff pilots for their flying hours. Wagging tongues report that they prefer to fly in grey than in yellow birds as they're fighters not student pilots. The yellow SF.260M Marchetti (ST01 to ST-36) are mainly
