Here's some shots of the sprues for the brand new 1/72 Hawker Typhoon Mk.Ib from Airfix, you can tell they've put a lot of thought into the construction of the kit. http://www.wonderlandmodels.com/products/airfix-172-hawker-typhoon-mkib/
We've just this week received our stock of the 1/72 Grumman F4F-4 Wildcat Plastic Model Kit from Airfix! This detailed, new tooled model kit, based on the WWII era American carrier-based fighter, comes with a choice of 2 sets of decals! For more details, check out our newsletter here.
Hi all, Please don't be too judge mental, but I thought I'd share my first attempt at one of the new tooling typhoons that Airfix have recently released. And what a fantastic kit it is, feel bad for not letting it go to someone who knows what they're doing a little better... Haha. But anyway, here she is! I made the starter kit version as that was the only one I could find(and still haven't seen a "normal" boxed kit since) at the Hendon model show. The paints were the ones complimentary with the kit, and in hindsight I wish that I had used the Revell acrylics that I'm used to but C'est la vie! The decals were great, hardly any silvering from them at all. Sadly for all of you I was too excited to get building and so didn't have time to stop, and take pictures in-between assembly stages, this kit was built in a night(and early morning, if you want to get technical) Here she is! The water splodges were sorted, one thing I shall do on the next one is cut the film on the decal so I don't get a mini tent on the side(under the "H") Enjoy All the best GuidoKM
What we have here is my fourth build since my thirty year break. There does seem to be quite a few of us like that. Must be the water. Or the pies more likely in my case. So, after fighting with my 1/72 SHAR build (and winning), and with time being at a bit of a premium, an OOB build of the very nice new Airfix F-51 Mustang was in order. It's a shame they weren't this good when I was at school. Even so, I like to try something new in these 'return to modelling' builds, so an NMF was just the ticket. I thought I'd try the Alclad2 stuff everyone bangs on about, so this is just a simple Alclad2 Aluminium, with some Tamiya metallic acrylics over the top in places. It also appears that Mustangs do appear to be a bit popular this week, so sorry for posting another one. Not sure what my next build will be, maybe another cleaner NMF on an F-100D, but here are the pictures of this one.

Surprisingly, my 12th build of the year, the lovely new tool Airfix P51 Mustang. Finished in Alclad and Tamiya paints, with Superscale decals. It kept me away from my 1/32 P51B, it was that good The aircraft is Angels Playmate, flown by Lt Bruce Carr of the 353rd FS, 354th FG. Thanks for looking.
