Build review of Dora Wings'Westland Lysander aircraft scale model kit
A look at the 1/72 scale aircraft kit with a fully detailed cockpit.

Build review of Airfix's Grumman F6F-5 Hellcat scale model aircraft kit
Review of this big 1/24 scale aircraft kit with outstanding detail. Matching the full-size Hellcat’s robustness and heft, Airfix’s 1/24 scale Grumman F6F-5 is loaded with detail and options, including four complete marking schemes. The kit comprises more than 570 parts and manages an astounding level of detail solely with injection-molded plastic, including a full set of seat belts.

Build Review of Revell's 1/48 Scale Bristol Beaufighter TF.X Aircraft Scale Model Kit
Build review of the 1/48 scale aircraft kit with many finishing options. The surface detail is the finest I’ve seen and petite doesn’t begin to describe the panel lines. Two of the three scribers I use would not fit into the grooves, they’re that narrow. Options include open or closed cowl flaps, raised or lowered landing gear and flaps, and posable control surfaces. Unfortunately... READ THE REST HERE! #scalemodels #WWIIaircraft
the book cover for revell germany avro shackleton, with two planes
FSM reviews the 1/72 scale aircraft kit. The slightly soft gray plastic shows good surface detail with a combination of recessed lines and rivets and a few raised features. All of the control surfaces are movable. Unfortunately, minor flash and some mold seams mar many of the parts. You’ll need to spend time on cleanup before assembly.

FSM reviews the 1/48 scale aircraft kit. The cockpit features a floor and separate side panels, but no seat belts. I used the instrument panel decal but omitted the other interior decals as they were too thick to settle over molded detail. Read more ...
The cockpit tub is split horizontally. Cockpit detail includes side consoles with molded controls, a flat instrument panel with decal dials, seat, joystick, and pedals. The only noticeable omission is seat belts. The kit’s pilot looks a little soft. ... Read more here. Fighter Jets, Plastic Models, Model Airplanes, Consoles, Messerschmitt Me 262

an airplane with the words airfix's b - 17g flying fortresss
The parts are molded in Airfix’s now standard soft, light gray plastic. Exterior panel detail is engraved, but not too deeply. Most small parts show mold-parting seams that need cleanup. Clear parts are well done. I can’t think of another company that produces instruction sheets better than Airfix’s. I really like how they show the previous step’s additions in place and tinted; great assurance for easily confused builders.

This is not Airfix’s rivet-encrusted classic from the early 1960s, nor its interim reboxing of the Academy kit — you can retire those. While not as detailed as the recent Revell kit, Airfix’s new Flying Fortress may be the best choice for most 1/72 scale modelers. The kit depicts the late B-17G model with the “Cheyenne” tail gun and staggered waist-gun positions (which was done to ease movement of the two standing gunners there).
