Greetings monster lovers!! Today’s offering is the Pegasus 1/12th scale solid vinyl “Mbwun” monster from 1997 movie ‘Relic’. I started with a base coat of Tamiya Acrylic Deck Tan, then detailed it out with Vallejo inks and transparent colours. The […]


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 […]


Pegasus solid vinyl 1953 ‘War of the Worlds’ Martian

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 […]


Dragon 1-144 scale F-16A Fighting Falcon

by George Tufnail on April 14, 2016 in Aviation -- 6 Comments

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. […]


Skunkworks 1/48 Scale F-16XL

by George Tufnail on April 2, 2016 in Aviation -- 14 Comments

I started this kit in early February with an April 15th deadline. I succeeded, but only just. It is completely Out-Of-the-Box, with only tape seatbelts added. The colours are all Testors Model Master Enamels. I finished the kit with a […]


AMT/Ertl Vinyl Rancor

by George Tufnail on March 25, 2016 in Sci-fi -- 8 Comments

I started this kit by heating and trimming all of the over pours of vinyl, then filling the legs with pre-mixed drywall plaster for weight. The parts all fit very well, with a judicious application of a hot hair dryer […]
