Bon Giorno!

I am glad you are using the old Hawk kit for your whif. I like to use old kits, too. Sometimes they are just simple and fun. I made a Bf-109Z from the Hawk kits and it turned out nicely.

I recently made a whif from a Faller kit (c. 1962--I have had it all this time), the "He-121".

Welcome to the "monkey house" that is whif-world!
My mind is like a compost heap: both "fertile" and "rotten"!

Really thanks for your welcome.

Yes, it's true. I love old kits...I think it's because I always wanted to do modeling, but I was able to start only two years ago, and i have 45 now...
...anyway I bought and set aside kits in the last thirty years ...

First of all, welcome! :cheers:

You show good taste in modeling projects and look forward to seeing more of your work.

And I also like the older kits, I actually have more fun working with them than the more modern kits. You are lucky to have that Hawk Bf 109 kit, I wish I had one now and remember building a few of those when I was a kid.

Finished the base:

I tried to print custom decals...  Terrible result. I don't know... problem with sheets or mine ?!
I will try again, but for this Bf i used some (mediocre) decals bought in Ebay.
Finished model, applied decals... now it's time for another coat of future, then some washing.







I found two propaganda posters of that war...  ;D

Not really. I'm a sci-fi and science fiction fanatic, but i don't like a lot Turtledove. I consider his books too verbose and at the same time not too detailed. His characters are two-dimensional, with no real personality. IMHO of course !
About civil war ucronia i prefer the old 'Bring the Jubilee' (1956) by Ward Moore.
Indeed, just a few books about civil war ucronia have been published in Italy...  :banghead:
I wrote a short story about a future civil war in Italy, but i'm not so good to translate in english...
