WNW 1/32 R.E.8 “‘Arry Tate”

by Tom Cleaver on November 27, 2012 in Aviation -- 2 Comments

Have I mentioned I looooooove WNW kits (thank you Sir Peter and Richard Alexander for letting me review them). I don’t know why, but I have always thought the R.E.8 looked neat since i ran across Wylam’s drawings in Model […]


1/48 F4U-4 Corsair (Tamiya + CMK)

by Chris Wallace on November 27, 2012 in Aviation -- 9 Comments

Hello, This was my fist attempt at a major conversion to get a nice looking F4U-4 in 1/48. It was not an easy conversion as some of the CMK resin shrank but eventually, with a little work and some Ultracast […]

My first completed model in 30 years, it’s not 100% accurate and I’ve yet to add the aerial but I’m happy with how it turned out. Airfix 1:48 club Me109 kit with Eduard PE and after market decals, airbrushed with […]


Wingnut Wings 1:32 Albatros DV.a

This is my first WWI model in 1:32 scale. The kit is superb, however I added some scratch built on the engine. Rigging was made of monofilament thread and scratch made turnbuckles. Painted with Gunze acrylics and weathered with oils. […]

Tamiya 1:48th F4U-iD

by Ross McArthur on November 27, 2012 in Aviation -- 9 Comments

I took up the challenge of a few commission builds, for a chap who builds R/C. His mission brief was for reference kits in 1:48th of RNZAF a/c used in the PTO. Normally his preference was for moderate weathering. However, […]


WNW Albatros D.V

by Tom Cleaver on November 27, 2012 in Aviation

Another great WNW kit, with Pheon Decals. Rowan invented the “fitted lozenge” decal WNW started using with their Pfalz D,XII. It makes doing a lozenge scheme totally easy.


WNW Hansa-Brandenburg W.29

by Tom Cleaver on November 27, 2012 in Aviation

One of the great Wingnut Wings kits, the first one to sell out (so where are all the other built-ups???) As with all the other WNW kits, commit the revolutionary act of actually reading the very good instructions and following […]


Blackburn Roc

Built a few months ago (reviewed in detail at Modeling Madness), using the A2Zee conversion set for the Special Hobby kit (which had been sitting around since 2007 till I got this set which increased the interest level). The big […]

F2G Super Corsair Racer Kit Bash

by George Tufnail on November 27, 2012 in Aviation -- 4 Comments

This was one of my first forays into AMS and kit bashing. I started with a Special Hobbies 1/48 F2G Racer, and added the wings from an Academy 1/48 F4U-1A, because I wanted the flaps down, and I wasn’t about […]


Tamiya 1/48 P-51D “Little Freddie”

by Erik Muntzing on November 26, 2012 in Aviation -- 11 Comments

Hello all, First off, an introduction. I’m currently a senior in high school and I have been modeling for a year and a half. In that time I have ruined a few models but have also pumped out quite a […]
