Hello, It has been a while since my last post, almost one and a half year. I had a very rough time the last 1,5 years………. in a nut-shell; burn-out, divorce, got sacked after 17 years…… but I’m doing very […]
My name is Ulrich, male, 45 yrs at the moment, girlfriend and two kids.
Love “pit-dogs”, WW2 fighterplanes and to build Japanese WW2 planes in 1:32 scale, sometimes in 1:48 scale.
My latest build. Started the build in October last year and then I got the “whooping-cough”. Inflamation of my ears, lost my voice and making sounds like a Pit Bull on steroids…. couldn’t build because of the severe cough. Took […]
Finished this one last week. Waited all week for the sun to shine so I could take some photographs. The kit is Hasegawa’s 1:32 scale Ki-43-II Hayabusa that I converted into a Ki-43-III koh. Modified the airscoop with putty, scratchbuilt […]
My latest build….. The Revell 1:32 scale Supermarine Spitfire Mk.1, in fact it’s a “mongrel” Revell parts and Hasegawa parts in one box sold under the Revell brand. Let me tell you first that I do not like Spitfires, nor […]
Finished this one last week. The Hasegawa Ki-61 kit with the Alleycat Ki-100 resin fuselage. A first glance at the resin gave me the impression that I was in for an easy build. Nice panel lines, no bubbles, nice detail. […]
Finished this one last week. It’s the re-re-re-box of the re-re-re-re-release of the old Revell Hurricane, which was first released in ’67. ( I have build one too in my younger years, late ‘80’s….) Considering it’s age it was a […]
This little bugger was a birthday present from my brother. It’s the second Fine Molds kit I’ve build and I must say it’s not as good as Tamigawa stuff. Not a great fit of the parts, instructions leave much to […]
My latest build. Learned a lot of new words, mainly swearing en cursing, during this build because it was a bloody PITA!!!! The engine doesn’t fit properly in the frame, nor does the parts for the cowling and guns. Did […]
This is my latest build. The old Revell, 1:32, Hawker Typhoon Mk.1b. Used the Techmod decals (the Revell ones were cr*p) and the vac-form Squadron bubbletop canopy. The aluminium Mark III rails and their SAP/HE 60 lbs rockets are scratchbuild, […]
I’ve build this kit a year ago. The kit was not an easy build……. the instructions were in JAPANESE! Painted with Tamiya acrylics IJN Green, IJN Grey, Yellow with a touch of red for IFF and lines on prop. The […]
