Roden 1/32 Nieuport 25 “МЕРИ”

by Maxim Bylkin on December 30, 2012 in Aviation -- 11 Comments

I want to introduce you to its first model in 32nd scale, and hopefully not the last – conversion Nieuport-24 from RODEN. Work has been done a lot, but I am pleased with the result so far)) Especially for the […]

Eduard Fokker E.V

by Tom Cleaver on December 30, 2012 in Aviation -- 4 Comments

Built about 2006, the very nice updated Eduard Fokker E.V “Parasol”. We now know the lozenge isn’t the right color (thank you very much WNW for your outstanding research!), but it still looks very nice. Amazing how aircraft development went […]

Eduard 1/48th Nieuport 17 in RFC Service

by Erik Wade Whipple on December 30, 2012 in Aviation -- 5 Comments

This is Eduard’s crisp little Nieuport 17 with a some extra detailing. The kit cockpit is fairly simple, with a flat floor with a step for the seat and molded in heel boards. It looks fine once it’s all closed […]

Roden 1/48th S.E.5a

by Erik Wade Whipple on December 29, 2012 in Aviation -- 6 Comments

In the box, this kit provides all of the classic Roden pebbly, wobbly plastic, fiddly fits, obscure attachment points, and horrific decals at no extra cost to the modeler. The scariest part was shaving down the tabs for the cabane […]

Falcon 1/48 Spitfire F.R.XVIII – vacuform

by Tom Cleaver on December 29, 2012 in Aviation -- 9 Comments

This was done about 2004. The Falcon 1/48 F.R. XVIII vacuform. Still the most accurate Spitfire XIV/XVIII in 1/48. I used a resin cockpit (something I had, nobody can really tell the detail differences between Spitfire cockpits in 1/48 scale […]

Summing up 2012!

by Magnus Fridsell on December 29, 2012 in Aviation -- 6 Comments

Not a very good year modelling-wise with only three kits finished. The fact that two of them are very small doesn’t make it more impressive either! So here we go, two MiG-21s from Eduard in 1/144 scale. One Slovak one […]

Hasegawa 1/32nd Messerschmitt Bf109G-14

by Erik Wade Whipple on December 29, 2012 in Aviation -- 3 Comments

This short-tailed Bf109G-14 was the benificiary of a tail swap from their Hartmann 109G-6 kit. It was built to represent the mount of Lt. Heinz Ewald of 7./JG-52 while based at Veszprem, Hungary in the Fall of 1944. Ewald survived […]

1/48 P-47D Thunderbolt

by Anders Isaksson on December 29, 2012 in Aviation -- 6 Comments

This is the wonderful Tamiya kit built out of the box with only a set of Eduard pre-painted seatbelts added along with an aftermarket decal sheet used to mark this one as ‘My Gal Sal’ from 378th FS/362nd FG based […]

1/48 Tamiya F-16C Arkansas

by Matt Mears on December 28, 2012 in Aviation -- 12 Comments

Hey Guys latest build, my 1/48 Tamiya F-16 Tried my first bleaching affect on the top of the aircraft to give it a weathered look and then put a wash on, Let me know what you think ! Thanks Matty

DML/Dragon 1/48 Ju-188A-4

by Bryan W. Bernart on December 28, 2012 in Aviation -- 7 Comments

This one took a while-both due to the quirkiness of the build and my indecision as to a paint scheme. Most of the kit decals were suspect so I ended up hitting the spares box. As a result, this example […]
