Revell 1/32nd (60′s issue) Spitfire Mk. I

by Erik Wade Whipple on December 8, 2012 in Aviation -- 4 Comments

This Spitfire was built last December. I used exhausts, radiator and oil cooler, and propeller from MDC, the Grey Matter belly correction, a back-dated Aires Mk.V cockpit set, RB Productions harness, and Barracudacast wheels, door, and canopy latch. Rudder, elevators, […]

Hey Guys, a bit about myself first, i am a 16 year old from Australia and have been model building aircraft for 2 years now, this is my latest build ! Hasegawa’s 1/48 F-16F Block 60, the kit fits together […]

Revell 1/48 F/A -18 Hornet

by Gary Brantley on December 7, 2012 in Aviation -- 6 Comments

This is the old Revell kit, from 1990. I built it several years ago, and recently got around to photographing her at the airport. I did use an aftermarket decal set, the SuperScaleInternational set 48-346. It’s pretty much built OOB, […]

Special Hobby Reggiane 2002

by Bryan W. Bernart on December 7, 2012 in Aviation -- 2 Comments

Another 1/48 offering with an interesting history if you’re into the obscure and obsolete. Not bad to build, an improvement over some of their other kits. Not as interesting as some of the other Italian camo schemes, but it grew […]

Kitbashed Nunguesser’s Nieuport 25

by Merrill Anderson on December 7, 2012 in Aviation -- 4 Comments

I made this a while back, but although not as good as some of my work, I was proud of this effort. It started with a friend giving me a 1/48 resin fuselage for a late model Nieuport, from some […]

Revell’s F-101B Voodoo in 1/72 scale

by Petri Ola on December 7, 2012 in Aviation -- 15 Comments

This is my most recent completion: the little Revell Voodoo in 1/72 scale finished in the colors of 444FIS. The kit is very nice even straight out of the box, but I ended up adding additional detail to several places. […]

Hasegawa 1:72 F-14A

Hello everybody, this is my Hasegawa 1:72 Tomcat I made some time ago. This is one of the best kits in this scale I’ve ever made, full of details and a dream to build with no filling or sanding at […]

1/48th Tamiya Me-262

by Walt Babst on December 7, 2012 in Aviation -- 6 Comments

After seeing Grega X post on his beautiful Me 262 I thought I would put my effort up here also. I have to agree, this kit is awesome, I have built the Monogram and Dragon Me 262 in 48th scale […]

Special Hobby Bristol Blenheim Mk.1

by Bryan W. Bernart on December 6, 2012 in Aviation -- 7 Comments

1/48 , and an interesting aircraft, and usual “interpretive” build, as one needs to get the parts to somehow hold hands long enough for the glue to set. Built several years ago, sans gloss coat, panel lines or weathering. Ignorance […]

Tamiya Spit

by Craig Abrahamson on December 6, 2012 in Aviation -- 16 Comments

Oh all right….UNCLE. I’ll regale you all with MY less-than-stellar example of what seems to be the trend here of late. That’s right, the venerable 1/32nd Tamiya Spitfire, done up in the exacting scheme of – nothing. I liked those […]
