I like Stugs!

by Scott Nelson on June 20, 2017 in Armor -- 8 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 […]

Now For Something Completely Different

by Scott Nelson on March 10, 2017 in Figures -- 16 Comments

Some time ago I decided that I wanted, little by little, to archive photos of most of my completed models here on iModeler. So if you will indulge me, I’m going to start with my figures. This first one is […]
