Airfix Model World | The builds
Chris Jones brings the silver screen to quarter scale with Maverick’s Super Hornet from the hotly anticipated 'Top Gun' sequel, via Revell’s 1/48 kit. Relive the high-octane movie with this fast-paced build feature!
Jay Blakemore discovers that building GasPatch Model’s new quarter-scale Komet is far from being rocket science... Discover the kit's contents and construction of this striking late-war interceptor in this full build feature.
Huw Morgan goes off the rails to give RyeField Model’s 1/35 Sherman Firefly a decidedly different setting... a custom diorama base featuring a length of same-scale railway track. Discover how these elements were constructed in this full-build feature.
Huw Morgan builds a Vietnam-era Centurion tank in a different scale – 1/56, usually favoured by figure painters - courtesy of Rubicon Models’ kit. Discover why this wargamer-aimed offering could be your next military build project here...
Airfix’s 1/72 Sea Harrier FRS.1 makes a return for the 40th anniversary of the Falklands conflict. Airfix Model World editor Stu Fone adds a few spares and tweaks to recreate a veteran airframe from the 1982 undeclared war.
Chris Jones builds Hobby 2000's re-boxing of the Hasegawa-tooled 1/72 Beaufighter Mk.VIc, (almost) out of the box - employing just the kit styrene and familiar painting techniques to produce a convincing finish.
Russia's invasion of Ukraine not only caused terrible loss of human life, but also brought about the destruction of the world's largest aircraft... the Antonov An-225 Mriya. Here, to mark its demise, we revisit Massimo Santarossa's original test-shot build of Revell's 1/72 kit, from the May 2019 edition of Airfix Model World.
