by George Johnson on October 3, 2017 in Aviation -- 21 Comments

I uploaded a few WIP pics of this little diorama a few months ago and after languishing on the shelf for a few months, I decided to finish the build. I don’t normally build anything smaller than 1/72, but these […]

Additions to my Workshop

I uploaded a few pictures of my workshop a couple of years ago and have made a few additions to it since then. I’ve added an air conditioning unit, a Paasche paint booth, LED Lighting, and an Espresso machine.

1/48 Hobby Boss Ka-27 Ukrainian Navy

by George Johnson on May 11, 2017 in Aviation -- 19 Comments

Just finished this bad boy after 5 months of working on it off and on. It’s pretty much OOB except for the seats, a couple of scratch built antennas, pitot tubes, wiring/plumbing, and excellent Bergemont decals. I used a custom […]

My Best of iModeler Prize

by George Johnson on November 4, 2016 in News -- 18 Comments

I want to thank iModeler again for the recognition, and the prize and just received. I just started working on the MiG-29 I won last year and this will be a really nice addition to my collection of U.S. and […]

1/48 Kinetic Su-33

by George Johnson on September 22, 2016 in Aviation -- 23 Comments

Well, after 5 months of working on this thing, I finally finished it. This is really a great kit.. The instructions are terrible, but it was still a pleasure to build. I used Mr Paint paints for everything except for […]

Abandoned Su-15 (1/48 Trumpeter Su-15 Flagon-A)

by George Johnson on July 28, 2016 in Aviation -- 11 Comments

I started this model a while back and posted a few work-in-progress articles about the build. The only after-markey I used was a photo-etch seat belt from another model. You can’t really see it through the stained, cracked, and weathered […]

MiG-29UB of the Azerbaijan Air Force

by George Johnson on May 14, 2016 in Aviation -- 24 Comments

Here’s my rendition of the a plane that appears to have been sold by the Ukrainian AF to the Azerbaijan AF (as far as I can tell). It’s been stripped of its paint so it looks to be pretty weathered. […]

Not trying to be repetitive here, but I shot some better photos of my 1/48 Trumpeter Mig-23.

1/48 Trumpeter Mig-23

by George Johnson on March 2, 2016 in Aviation -- 21 Comments

So I have to say that I think I finished the 1/48 Trumpeter Mig-23. I’m pretty happy with it. I touched up a few things, added a little Mig European soil weathering pigment and attached the missiles. This was a […]

1/35 Czech Air Force Mi-24 Attack Helicopter

by George Johnson on January 1, 2016 in Aviation -- 14 Comments

I finally finished this thing after four months of working on it almost every night. I used several after-market sets including PE by Eduard and a resin interior kit by Verlinden. In the end, I only used parts of each […]
