Modeling by Craig Abrahamson


April Random Award

Not a very good picture (the wife isn’t a photographer) – I sure got this fast, though. A big thank you to the iModeler staff for their consideration. It’s much appreciated.


Monogram 48th scale Skyraider

by Craig Abrahamson on April 10, 2016 in Aviation -- 26 Comments

This is the old boxing of Monogram’s “Tour of Duty” Skyraider (which I finally got a canopy for)…the kit had no decals, so I “winged” it (no pun intended). This was – if not painfully obvious – a ‘weekend build’, […]


Academy 1/48th F-4C

by Craig Abrahamson on April 7, 2016 in Aviation -- 29 Comments

The first entry of the group build that Greg started a while back. I must say that I was pleasantly surprised at my first attempt at completely PE-ing the cockpit. Some of you may have seen the completed assembly elsewhere […]


Trumpeter 48th F-106B

by Craig Abrahamson on March 25, 2016 in Aviation -- 37 Comments

A long time back, before the B-model was available, I’d done the Monogram F-106A in a NASA NMF scheme (see attached). When the Trumpeter “B” came out, I told myself I was gonna try to replicate one of my favorite […]

OK….let’s get this outta the way – 2015 builds

Like TC, I didn’t realize I’d destroyed this many kits over the last year – although a few of ’em turned out ok I guess.


Workbench theme….et al

by Craig Abrahamson on December 29, 2015 in Uncategorized -- 10 Comments

Although rather small in area, I can create clutter and disarray with the best of ’em. Taken some time ago, it presently isn’t a whole lot different. In the second photo, the evil one oversees my movements. She does NOT, […]


Revell AH-64 Apache Longbow

by Craig Abrahamson on November 3, 2015 in Aviation -- 33 Comments

A gift from a fellow iModeler (thanks, Frank) only my 4th build with whirly things on the top, but went together fairly well – even with all those ‘fiddly bits’. I’m assuming it’s 35th scale, judging from the pilot figures […]


Collings Foundation B-24 “Witchcraft”

by Craig Abrahamson on September 20, 2015 in Aviation -- 8 Comments

Seeing Tom’s photos reminded me of when (as in every winter season), the Colling’s birds flock to New Smyrna airport for yearly maintenance. These are just the B-24 photos in her present livery. I also have “Nine-O-Nine” pics and can […]


R/M 1/48th B-25 Mitchell

by Craig Abrahamson on September 20, 2015 in Aviation -- 24 Comments

I half-heartedly attempted to convert this into a generic Marine/Navy version of the PBJ, seein’s’ how I didn’t have one. The kit presented little problems in itself, any ‘problems’ were (as always) self-inflicted. I did absolutely no weathering – not […]
