As I told before I built my last models on 1992... I still have the ones I built from 1979 to 1992 among them a few Airfix, Frog and Matchbox models. I found some old photos I have to scan. I avoid touching them due the age and danger to damage them to take new photos. Those oldies are from 1980 to 1989 period.
Fw Ta 152H - Frog.
Me 410 - Matchbox.
Me 109F - Frog
Fw 190F - Airfix
Fw 190A - Matchbox.
Corsair - Matchbox (built do my brother but never left my home...)

Thanks Erik. I´m really surprised that after all those years my models are still intact. Despite the expected change in the colors and yellowing on decals and a vacuform cockpit all details I did using stretched sprue like antenas and cables are still ok. Not to forget those fragile Me 109 legs...

Amazing photography on the Frog 109. You managed to make it look like the 70/02 scheme in one shot and 74/75 in the other. LOL Thank goodness for today's digital rigs that can correct easily for color balance and light source. All very nice builds BTW.

Well I will give a hello to them, clean some dust and take new photos to place here. In truth there is a color variation for each image due the light or photo processing and age.
