Hello folks. Well here’s a thing, a fourth completion in four months… really this is not the speed I usually work at, think ‘mein Frau’ is adding something to my ‘English Breakfast Tea’ !! Hobbyboss’s F/A-18 isn’t without its’ faults:- […]

‘Different’ Defiant

by IAN JACKSON on September 25, 2016 in Aviation -- 20 Comments

Not simply a ‘great Airfix kit’, in my opinion, one of the best fitting and rewarding kits of any manufacturer that I’ve built in years. No I’m not one of those folks that screamed and shouted for a 48th Defiant […]

‘ Utility’ Panther

Hey folks, as mentioned, my follow-up to the F-8 Crusader from a couple of weeks back is another USN subject. One of the quickest (a month-and-a-day), easiest and most relaxing builds I’ve ever done. The old Monogram F9F-2 Panther updated […]

Good afternoon from a cold and damp Middle Earth. Well here t’is after eight months on-and-off the bench, my Hasegawa 1:48 Crusader. Now before I go-on, as I was editing the pics for size, I noticed that I’ve forgotten to […]

Hello everyone first finish in a few weeks. This is the not-too-good Academy 1:48 F-15A, I’ve had this in the stash for a fair number of years and had always intended to build it as a Bitburg machine fully loaded […]

AB-212

Hello folks, seem to have been absent from iM for a few weeks, so apologies for that: To the point – Isn’t it odd how things work-out. Over on another site I’ve been ruthlessly lobbying for a SAR themed build […]

Built for ‘Micro Modelling Month’ over at http://www.modelersalliance.com – an annual GB/Campaign to build any model in one of the smaller scales. As I have four of these kits on the shelf, I thought it was time to build another […]

Mirage IIIO

Hi everyone HNY from a very warm (27deg) & sunny Middle Zealand. So this project is a sort of ‘getting back to basics’ build. Initially I started it back in April’ish last year, then after just two sessions, boxed it […]

Started just three weeks ago, and here it is DONE !! Not bragging at all, at the outset this was a “Clear the bench” build. All ongoing projects were sent to the ‘pending’ pile, I ordered some fresh Micro-Mesh pads […]

Ki46 III ‘Dinah’

Just four weeks from opening the box to finishing it on Monday evening. Now this isn’t me ‘showing-off’ it’s simply a reflection of just how well this Tamiya kit goes together. There isn’t too much to say about this project, […]
