DAP Beaufighter Mk 21 RAAF - 1/72 - Hasegawa

Hi there,

My last project, a Royal Australian Air Force Beaufighter Mk21.
It is the 1/72 scale kit from Hasegawa, built out-of-the-box. Just some painting/weathering laboratory to me. I did try a lot of new techniques: post-shading, pastels, inks, etc. The trick here was to make a plain colored AC look interesting - that's far from perfect but I like what I did.


Thx for reading.

Bf-109 E3 - 1/48 Hasegawa - Hans Hahn

My last project, a 109 piloted by Hans Hahn.

Wanted things simple, so just build it OOB with only a few scratched thingies. I only used guns from Master Models.
The Hasegawa is getting kind of old with quite some flash. I was a bit disappointed on this point.

Paint used: Gunze, Xtracrylics + Citadel

EKW C-36 Walkaround

Another walkaround of one of my favourite plane: the Swiss EKW C-36. This one is also exposed at the Dubendorf aviation museum, near Zurich. Enjoy.






















Below, 2 pictures of the 1000 HP Hispano-Suiza 12 Y-51, that equipped the C-3603, but also the M.S. 406

1,245 hp Saurer YS-2 (a more powerful Swiss development of the Hispano-Suiza 12Y-51) , that equipped the C-3604:

D-3801 Morane Saulnier MS 406 Walkaround

After the Bf-109, here is a short walkaround of the Adolph Saurer AG license-built D-3801 Morane Saulnier MS-406 also exposed at the Swiss Airforce museum at Dubendorf (Switzerland). One advice, if you go in Switzerland say D-3801, not M.S. 406 or you will have to handle a diplomatic issue  - n'est ce pas GĂ©rard :)






















Below are a few pictures of the cockpit taken through the windows ...
