by George Tufnail on December 2, 2016 in Figures -- 7 Comments

Newest finished piece. This is The Dungeonmaster, a 120mm, 6 part resin kit from the now defunct company, Verlinden. I have had this kit for nearly 15 years, and finally decided I could do it justice. It was primed with […]

by George Tufnail on November 26, 2016 in Automotive -- 7 Comments

This was built absolutely straight from the box, and finished with Tamiya spray color TS-41 Coral Blue that I decanted and applied with my Iwata HP-CS. Everything in the engine bay was all brush painted, and the interior was very […]

Pegasus 2005 War of the Worlds Alien

by George Tufnail on September 5, 2016 in Sci-fi -- 5 Comments

This is the Alien from Steven Spielberg’s 2005 version of ‘The War of the Worlds’. This and the tri-pod fighting machine (which I also have), are the best things about this movie. This kit is multi-media, having styrene plastic legs […]

by George Tufnail on September 2, 2016 in Sci-fi -- 6 Comments

This is the Martian from George Pal’s 1953 movie ‘War of the Worlds’. This kit was a fairly simple build. I base coated it in Tamiya spray bomb fine grey primer. After that, the hardest part was hand painting all […]

1968 boxing of the 1/72 scale Airfix Handley-Page Hampden.

by George Tufnail on August 26, 2016 in Aviation -- 14 Comments

I built this old school kit in an old school style. No putty, so there are seams, but I didn’t want to sand off all of the rivets! I used my airbrush to apply the Dark Earth and Dark Green […]

T-38C Talon in 1/48 Scale by Trumpeter

by George Tufnail on July 10, 2016 in Aviation -- 9 Comments

I built this one just because I could. Totally out of the box, with paint by Testors Model Master enamels, washes by AK Interactives, and decals from the box that fought me tooth and nail. Even the photo-etch seatbelts were […]

This one has been languishing on my shelf for nearly 5 years, and I finally decided to finish it. Old school. All finishing has been applied with a paintbrush. The colours are all Testors Model Master Enamels, with a brushed […]

Academy 1-48 scale F-16A/C with Two Bobs Decals

by George Tufnail on April 4, 2016 in Aviation -- 6 Comments

Started this one in January as a hedge against the missing parts in the Kinetic Sufa,(which showed up too late for the deadline) and the unavailability of the Skunkworks F-16XL. Cheap, quick, cool markings. Turned out to be very cheap. […]
