LVT Landing Craft with British Sherman + crew Airfix 1/72 model kit D-day Normandy

Today I show you this airfix set made a long time ago , before the internet globalised modelling and more accurate models came in. Pics made during a semi stormy day many years ago, with great risk of losing the model :) .

My 1/72 Collection; Part V; Junkers Stuka eastern front, Norwegian Tiger Moth, My childhood Stuka, Romanian PZL P11, Philippine Boeing Peashooter P.28


Supermarine Spitfire 1/32 "Malta's 1000th" Revell model kit RAF

 This is the old 1975 Revell kit (original edition!), finished just a few weeks ago. Built by my father, pilot sculpted by my brother, painted by all three :) . A huge kit, and one that still looks very nice today. One of those old kits with plenty of mechanisms everywhere. The original pilot was unable to exit his cockpit! so a new one was sculpted, with flexible compound, so he can squeeze in and out :) .

My 1/72 collection, part IV; Folland Gnat India, Saab Draken, Dornier Alphajet Togo, Mitsubishi Zero, Hawker Hurricane Yugoslavia, Spitfire Pacific forces

Here another batch of my 1/72 collection. In this case, all these were bought in a big lot, ready built but in very poor shape and condition, missing parts, yellowed paint application (bad varnish used), peeling away decals, incredibly dusty.... I took the chance to sand them, repair them, clean the cockpits and give them exciting paint jobs and decals, most of them printed by myself :) .
