A Year In Builds – 2016

by Greg Kittinger on December 27, 2016 in Aviation -- 10 Comments

I knew I would finish at least one of the 3 in-progress builds during the Christmas break, so wanted to wait until I got that done to add to the “year in the life of a modelaholic” mania sweeping iModeler […]

AviationUSK 1/72 VL Myrsky II

by Greg Kittinger on December 27, 2016 in Aviation -- 11 Comments

I enjoy old kits and unusual subjects, and this one fit both bills! This was an old AviationUSK bagged kit. Soft plastic, not a lot of parts, vac-formed canopy (which I’m not a real fan of), and butt joints. It […]

So Wadja Get For Christmas?

by Greg Kittinger on December 25, 2016 in Aviation -- 8 Comments

Got some cash under the tree, so spent a few bucks online today… I have recently taken an interest in modern trainers, and have the new Yak and Mig (by Amodel), but just accidentally realized I didn’t have the T-4 […]

Hasegawa 1/72 Kfir C-2 – Ecuador

by Greg Kittinger on November 21, 2016 in Aviation -- 15 Comments

Back when I first got into modeling (mid-80’s), one of the first kits I built was the Testor Kfir as an F-21 Navy aggressor. I’ve always loved the lines of the Mirage family of delta aircraft, especially the modified versions […]

Hasegawa 1/72 RF-101C Voodoo

by Greg Kittinger on October 18, 2016 in Aviation -- 27 Comments

Started this over two years ago. Got a bit distracted trying to decide what to do with all the raised panel lines that got obliterated by sanding down the seams, and other builds seemed like more fun! In the end, […]

ACE 1/72 P-47D Thunderbolt

by Greg Kittinger on September 21, 2016 in Aviation -- 17 Comments

A few months ago, I was thinking I wanted to build my first t-bolt, and knew I had 3 in the stash – a Tamiya D, a Revell razorback, and one other kit I couldn’t remember. My eye landed on […]

Thanks to all who participated! There was great conversation – swapping of warnings, tips and tricks in the groups area, along with some cajoling and support along the way! Below are the pics of those who made the deadline, and […]

1/72 Testors/Italeri RF-4E Luftwaffe in Norm 72 scheme

by Greg Kittinger on August 14, 2016 in Aviation -- 19 Comments

This Recce Phantom is my group build contribution. Relatively fun kit to put together. There were no details in the cockpit, so I did a bit of scratch building to add a center bulkhead, beef up the instrument panels to […]

Emhar F3H-2M Demon 1/72

by Greg Kittinger on July 19, 2016 in Aviation -- 10 Comments

As I was responding to Tom Clever’s post today of his older Demon build, I decided to post my 1/72 rendition of the Demon. I’ve built 2 Emhar kits, and only buy/build them because they are generally the only option […]

Hasegawa 1/72 P-40N – Desert Scheme

by Greg Kittinger on July 13, 2016 in Aviation -- 15 Comments

A friend of mine bought me this kit so that the two of us could both build P-40N’s (although his was 32 scale). I liked a couple of the Pacific Theater schemes that came in the box – especially the […]
