1994
- Hasegawa 262 with kit decals and Cooper Details interior. This is my only winner yet in the Swedish IPMS national competition. This was in 1994, it worries me a bit!

1995
- Fujimi Spit XIV, again with a Cooper Details interior and kit decals. Not the winner I had hoped for.
- Italeri boxing of the Dragon P-38J. Not that it matters since I used Aeromaster decals on it! Still missing the bazooka tubes, one day or another...

1997
- MPM FW-190 prototype. Not even myself thought it was a winner.

1999
- Hasegawa D.520 with ModelArt decals.

2000
- Ventura Spitfire PR.XI with Norwegian decals from the kit! Again a disproportionate amount of work was spent on the Cooper Details interior...
- Marivox Vampire F. Mk 1. This is a Heller kit with added parts made by Malcolm Laird (of Ventura fame) for the rounded wing tips and square fins of the Mk. 1. It also includes a magnificent decal sheet!

2001
- An Omani Hunter...
- ...and a Chilean one! Both built for the "Hundred Hunters"-display at Telford in 2001. Airfix kits that I spent huge amounts of work on just to end up with two rather mediocre Hunters. Thank God for Revell, I have yet to build one though...

2002
- Academy Sabre Mk. 4 with Modeldecal decals. I am still quite fond of this one!
- Another nice Academy kit, an F-84 Thunderjet with French markings from ModelArt! My first (and only) use of Alclad!
- High Planes Mirage IIIC with kit decals in the markings of one of the Djibouti-based aircraft.

2003
- Academy Tempest in the markings of Belgian V-1 ace Remy van Lierde.

2005
- Pegasus XP-40Q done for a friendīs P-40 display.
- Valom Blackburn Firebrand. Heavily modified nose and home-made canopy to get at least a reasonable resemblance of the real thing! This one is bigger than a P-38, I understand why it was unpopular with the FAA!

2006
- Australian Avon Sabre, Academy kit with fuselage and decals from High Planes.
- Academy P-51B with Cutting Edge decals from the "Zircus Rosarius" sheet. Metal finish is Vallejo water based metallics. Nice effect but they are a bit fragile!
- My first Aeroscale build thanks to PolarBear who talked me into joining! Academy T-6 built for the Suez campaign!

2007
- Hasegawa Tomcat from the Tomcat campaign!
- Xtrakit Meteor F.8 with Danish Stoppel decals. This was the first build that I blogged.
- Xtrakit Spit XII.

2008
- Xtrakit Canberra PR.9. Winner Mom March 2008, articles published in Scale Aircraft Modelling and Replic. I'm quite pleased with myself.
- Fine Molds Bf-109F-2, simply a great kit! Built for the Aces High-campaign.
- Fujimi F-4K Phantom. Built for the Phabulous Phantoms-campaign. I never managed to finish it in time for the deadline but that matters less!
- Hasegawa D.520, a simple but nice kit of a great looking aircraft! Was supposed to be a weekend-build. I failed miserably I'll try some time in the future again.

2009
- Dragon Arado 234C-2. A troublesome model and certainly no winner but it looks quite cool! Built for the Paparazzi Club-campaign.
- Anigrand XF-10F Jaguar. My first-ever resin kit built for the first (and only one yet) campaign as a leader, the Swing-Wing 2008-campaign. An odd bird indeed!
- Xtrakit Meteor T.7 with Isradecal decals. Built for the Twin seat Trainer/Fighter-campaign.
- High Planes Winjeel. Built for the Ronnie RAAF Campaign-campaign.

About Magnus Fridsell (magnusf)

It all started with a Biggles book, one of those where he is a flying policeman... He flew an Auster of some kind. Later that year, this was in 1982 when I was 10, I got the Airfix Series 1 Auster for Christmas. Since then modelling has been my interest. It has survived RC flying, flying full sca...
