While I mostly model WW II aircraft, I will make any model that strikes my fancy.
When I feel like I’m getting bogged down with builds that are getting too complicated, I like to do a modern sub. It’s a black tube with a few parts attached. (Okay, sometimes there’s a red half or so.) That equals refreshment for me! I had got [...]
Back again! Here’s another of the kits I’ve been working on little by little over the last couple of months, the Hasegawa 1/72 P-40N. My version is a decent “three footer,” maybe four. While the kit has petite engraved panel lines, the cockpit i[...]
I finally finished a kit! Even though I visit iModeler nearly every day, I haven’t posted anything in quite a while having started a new job this school year that has kept me very busy. But, bit by bit, I kept at this one and present my Bandai 1[...]
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 edges to my eye. That would be my only[...]
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!
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 tips of the Curtis Electric prop but afte[...]
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 the box. So, I now have another addition to a lar[...]
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 a 1/144 Hunter decal sheet, I'd make a b[...]
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 can get a bet[...]
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 was a little expensive for my taste, so when I found a 1/72[...]
