Here is a small
selection of photographs of models at the IPMS UK Nationals last
Unfortunately I couldn’t get a better range of pics due to the
organisers wanting to judge so 20 mins is all I got
Most likely the Eduard 48th Airacobra in RAF
Probably the Aeroclub 48th Be2c, the linen effect was
Bf108 Taifun in Hungarian markings very nicely done!
Fw190 F-8 with what I am presuming is the FM or Aires engine

Another Fw190 F-8 getting the same treatment with probably the
