Eduard 1:72 Fokker Dr.1

by Dennis Meyers on November 19, 2017 in Aviation -- 12 Comments

The fuselage markings and unusual black coloring attracted me to this kit. I’d avoided biplanes for a long time out of rigging anxiety. This one has mercifully little. This project also gave me an opportunity to try some wood grain […]

Airfix 1:72 Spitfire

by Dennis Meyers on September 13, 2017 in Aviation -- 13 Comments

Had to take a hiatus to sell our house and move into an apartment until the new house is finished. Got back to models with this great little gem. Haven’t set up an airbrush station yet so did all the […]

Minicraft 1:144 C-130 gunship

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

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, 1/48 scale Panzerkampfwagen 38(t) Ausf. E/F

by Dennis Meyers on October 3, 2016 in Armor -- 8 Comments

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 […]
