Who Doesn’t Have a Spitfire Collection?

by Scott Nelson on July 5, 2017 in Aviation -- 14 Comments

Hot off the workbench is my version of the Tamiya 1/72 Spitfire Mk. Vb in the markings of 243 squadron. As usual for a Tamiya kit, it went together with no problems. The decals of the code letters have soft […]

I like Stugs!

by Scott Nelson on June 20, 2017 in Armor -- 17 Comments

It’s been a while but, here’s my latest build, the Tamiya 1/48 Stug III. I included a bunch of in progress pics to show my process on armor. Hope you like it!

Did I Tell You I Like Jugs?

by Scott Nelson on April 15, 2017 in Aviation -- 11 Comments

It took a week longer than I expected but, here’s the second of my 1/144 P-47D razorbacks from Platz. I think this one turned out a little better than the previous one. I had to do some reshaping on the […]

I Like Jugs

by Scott Nelson on April 2, 2017 in Aviation -- 14 Comments

Not too long ago I posted an article about my 1/144 P-47D bubble tops from Platz. I had a chance to pick up the razorback version at a recent model contest. Today I present one of the two kits in […]

Tiny Hunter

by Scott Nelson on March 28, 2017 in Aviation -- 10 Comments

I think the Hawker Hunter is one of the most esthetically pleasing aircraft ever to fly. I’ve made Revell’s 1/32, 1/72, and, now 1/144 Hunters. I have to say I like this 1/144 kit the best. If I can find […]

Whoa, Nellie!

by Scott Nelson on March 25, 2017 in Aviation -- 19 Comments

Here’s my 1/72 Hasegawa G3m Nell. A straightforward build although masking the clear parts was tedious even with a pre-cut mask set. I tried post-shading panel lines with powders on this one. Probably won’t do that again. I think I […]

A Wyvewhat?! That’s not a real Plane!

by Scott Nelson on March 20, 2017 in Aviation -- 30 Comments

I had never heard of a Wyvern until I saw an add for the Trumpeter kit. It’s what I call “ugly cool” looking, like the F-4 Phantom. As soon as I saw it, I wanted one. The 1/48 scale kit […]

Yoo-hoo?! No, Uhu.

by Scott Nelson on March 16, 2017 in Aviation -- 32 Comments

My newest archiving addition is the 1/48 Tamiya He-219 Uhu. I got this kit pretty cheap from a vendor at a local contest. A couple pieces were broken but, nothing too difficult to fix. I am a modeler after all […]

Duryee’s Zouave

by Scott Nelson on March 13, 2017 in Figures -- 20 Comments

One of my larger figures, this is Warriors Scale Models’ 120 mm Officer, 5th New York Volunteer Infantry, Duryee’s Zouaves. This is a resin figure, except for the sword. I modified the figure slightly by adding the sword and re-sculpting […]

Norm!

by Scott Nelson on March 12, 2017 in Figures -- 5 Comments

Continuing the building of my model archive, today I present my Elite Miniatures Norman knight in 54 mm. It’s a metal casting. I used oils for the entire figure. The shield and tunic design are made up. That’s the beauty […]
