As they say, “Now for something completely different”. Typically, I build 1/48 scale aircraft. This will be a multi-kit build log of 1/72 scale aircraft. A client needs some aircraft to hang up for display. He sent me five aircraft to build for him. As noted before, these are all 1/72 scale. They will all be built mostly out of the box with the wheels up. One will have a different scheme, one will be a conversion, all will have pilots, and all five will be in this one build log.
The aircraft being built and the order in which they will be built are:
1/72 Airfix Spitfire MK 1a – with different scheme decals than what comes with the kit.
1/72 Arifix Spitfire MK 1a – This will be converted to a MK II using 3-D Kits MK II conversion set.
1/72 Eduard MK IXc – This is the Prolifipak version that include photo-etch. Will be adding aftermarket pilot.
1/72 Tamiya P-51D – Will be adding aftermarket pilot.
1/72 Academy F-35A – The paint scheme will be the newer overall dark gray
