The July 2009 issue of FineScale Modeler features a portfolio of Canadian Brian Birk's contest-winning models. Exclusive to our Web site, here are more of Brian's awesome aircraft.
Hasegawa 1/48 scale F-104G
Colorful Greek air force livery inspired Brian to build Hasegawa's 1/48 scale F-104G.
Hasegawa 1/72 scale Starfighter
Brian has a strong affection for CF-104 Starfighters. He finished Hasegawa's 1/72 scale kit as the first Canadian Starfighter delivered to Europe.
Academy 1/48 scale Spitfire
Brian built Academy's 1/48 scale Spitfire Mk.XIVe with a five-blade prop.
Revell 1/32 scale Tornado
Brian worked on Revell's 1/32 scale Tornado off and on for five years, grappling with the difficult four-piece fuselage. He installed TAC Scale Dynamics resin seats and livened it up with paint and markings for the Royal Saudi air force.
Hasegawa 1/72 scale F-111G
Even in 1/72 scale, this Royal Australian Air Force F-111G is huge. Brian built the Hasegawa model.
Eduard 1/48 scale Mirage III
Brian says Eduard's 1/48 scale Mirage III is simply a great kit. He built it out of the box and dressed it in Israeli insignia.
