Something like this can ruin your whole day… Scale 1:72 nothing else matters I think the title for this little dio doesn’t need any explanation The inspiration for this build came once again due to a picture which I found […]
Modeling by René Hieronymus
607 karma, 7 friends
I live near Salzburg/Austria and since I was a boy my hobby has always been to build models. Snce I’m about 17 I’m specialized on US Navy ships and aircraft all in the same scale of 1:72. I’m doing this since quite a few years. My goal is to have one model of every type of aircraft ever flown with US Navy markings. Perhaps a rather big goal but at least I will try to accomplish this.
My biggest love is scratch building ships and dioramas. 2-3 times a year I go to modelshows most of all to meet new friends.
And believe it or not I’m still married!
If you can’t dazzle them with brilliance, overwhelm them with rivets!
Cheers to all
Hi there The idea for this little dio came up when I ran across a product called „prop blur“, a photo etched propeller, depicting nothing else but a rotating props. AA very simple but veeeeeeery clever product, I just loved […]
Here is my next cat, this time I’ve chosen a Hellcat in a rather unusual livery. During WWII several Hellcats, mostly refurbished models were used in the most exciting role as a traget tow aircraft. To give their pilots a […]
Hi there, this week I will start with a little series of one of my favorite aircraft, the Grumman Hellcat. During the years I have built several versions of this aircraft and I will show you a few of them, […]
Hi there again, I want you to show another model of my growing collection. This time it’s the Italeri A-6E kit in 1:72. It took me about 3 weeks to finish this beautiful kit. With the exception of those 2 […]
Oh the joy of building a model – or welcome to the dark side! You all know the story of how bad vacu kits or other short run kits can be but today I can tell you, I have seen […]

When you talk to model-builders about vacu-form kits you can see in their reactions a mixture of ignorance and sheer terror. Building a vacu form kit is still something of a mystery to most model-builders. Sure in today’s world of […]
Hard to believe but this almost unknown version was planned and ordered by the Navy even before its predecessor the first production AJ-1 was completed. 3 of this massive airframes were ordered, 2 for test-flights and a third one for […]
These machines were used by the US Navy during the early years before WWI. The strange looking aircraft was a pretty interesting design for it’s time, it even could have been called a flying wing, cause there was no tail […]
