  1. Hello, This is a P-47D with Brazilian Air Force WW2 colors. The newly established Brazilian Air Force (1941) sent the 1st Fighter Group as part of an Expeditionary Force, operating under US Forces in Italy, from mid 1944 until the end of hostilities in Europe. Since the allies had already air superiority in the area, these birds were mainly engaged in interdiction missions, initially operating from Tarquinia airfield, and moving north eventually. German anti aircraft fire was still very effective, and some pilots were KIA and a few became POW. Yet, they destroyed a lot of targets during
  2. This is my recent project. A very nice kit, without any issues, except for the clear parts for the Maverick missiles; they just don’t fit into their places. Used Eduard canopy masks and PE for the cockpit, and metal pitot tube/cannon. Only thing I’d change would be the rubber tires. I mean, they’re ok, but if they had resin, for instance, those would take a better weathering. Decals were also good. Hope you enjoy. Cheers! George
  3. Hello! Latest project, another ‘109, always a nice model. This one from Eduard is very good, came with some resin, PE and canopy masks. I’ve tried to display a very weathered one, as I think it should be the case operating in north Africa those days. Decals went just fine. Hope you’ll enjoy! Cheers!
  4. Hi there, This my recente project, one of those very nice Eduard Migs 21. Used canopy masks, interior PE and metal pitot tube. No issues at all and, despite being a little bit worried about the “tiger stripes” decals, they turned out great. Very thin and went well with Mr Softer. These aircraft had this commemorative painting only for a relatively short period of time, so I decided to weather just enough to show the dirt that comes from normal flying, i.e., didn’t degraded the paint to have too many scratches and/or chipping. Hope you enjoy! Cheers!
