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 VI; Land vehicles; M3 White Matchbox, T-26 Flamethrower, T-26 UM models, Sherman Italeri, Russian Pak40 and D-37 armored wagon


 D-37  Russian Armoured wagon; a small nice kit from UM Models. Very unusual model, as you hardly see such obscure themes, and with a decent price tag too. I managed to find a good interesting camo to escape from the typical green.
M-3 White; this I got through Revell's reissue. It is 1/76, and is very noticeable when placed along the Hasegawa true 1/72, but is still nice, more as it is the Flak version.
Sherman Italeri; I believe a Esci reissue. It's really very impressive as to how the engine is made and represented in such a tiny scale! I believe it is a 1/35 kit, shrunk. The pilot is fun, although he seems a bit a cross between a zombie and a robot!

Finnish T-26 early tank; another UM models. Wonderful to be able to build such obscure kits, and for a forgotten belligerent side like Finland!
T-26, Flamethrower; this is the flame shooting variant, for the Red Army. I was googling a long time to find a russian camouflage that was different to what I had built previously.

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 :) .
