Minicraft 1:144 C-130 gunship

by Dennis Meyers on March 26, 2017 in Aviation -- 11 Comments

Nice little kit but smoothing in the big windshield area was challenging. Built it to compliment a Hasagawa 1:200 C-130. Is a 1:72 next?

The 2017 IPMS- SilverWings in Sacramento once again put on a great show with a broad range of high quality entries. The 1/35 Armor and 1/48 Single Engine AC were particularly competitive.

Hasegawa 1:72 Pz. Kpfw V Panther ausf. G

Earlier this year I found my stash contained three nice 1/72 Panzers; Dragon Pzkw III Ausf. J., Dragon Jadgpanther and this Hasagawa Panther. I thought a trio of petite Panzers would be a great addition to my collection. This kit […]

WW1 Whippet 1:35 Meng

by Dennis Meyers on January 9, 2017 in Armor -- 14 Comments

Had a blast with this kit! Meng kits cover go together beautifully. Despite the unusual design of this tank this kit, like other Meng kits, went together beautifully. Given the subject, I was able to try out a lot of […]

Tamiya M10 IIC Achilles 1/48

by Dennis Meyers on November 25, 2016 in Armor -- 12 Comments

The 17pdr Achilles was a British adaptation of the American M10 TD armed with a very effective 17 pounder anti-tank gun, similar to the Sherman Firefly. As with all other Tamiya 1:48 kits I’ve tried, this was nearly flawless which […]

Tamiya’s quarter scale armor kits are awesome. This one is no exception. The fit is great and builds up like a dream. leaves lots of time for painting. I used everything in the toolbox to paint and weather…AK primers, Tamiya […]

Jadgpanther 1:72 Dragon

by Dennis Meyers on August 29, 2016 in Armor -- 9 Comments

Besides wanting to add one of these beasts to my display, the “Die Cast Metal Parts Included” intrigued me. The well detailed hull, tub/suspension are cast metal, already primed. Fitting the two pieces together require some filing and adjusting–not easily […]

Dusty Dragon 1:72 Pzkw III

Can’t let my friend Scott’s great Sumoa go unanswered. I just finished a Dragon Pzkw III Ausf. J. Great little kit. Plenty of detail for the scale. Painted predominantly with Tamiya German Gray and Deck Tan applied in washes and […]
