1/48 Promodeler Ju 87R-2

by Keith Gabriel on December 20, 2012 in Aviation -- 5 Comments

Nicely detailed kit with some basic photoetch from Eduard. The hardest part was masking the canopy framing! The decals are from Aeromaster just for something different than those that were supplied in the box. This was one of my first […]

1/48 Promodeler Me 410

by Keith Gabriel on December 20, 2012 in Aviation -- 4 Comments

This is a fairly decent kit with beautiful cockpit detail, the only issue is the multi-part canopy which I damaged in the build, luckily I secured a spare from Revell parts replacement. Meng Models has just released a new boxing […]

Roden 1/48 SE5a, (Mick Mannock)

by Merrill Anderson on December 20, 2012 in Aviation -- 5 Comments

This is another old build. It’s the Roden SE, the Part PE set was not available when I started the kit, so I scratched some detail, and used the limited old set for the Aurora/Monogram kit. The one up to […]

1/48 Dragon Ta 154

by Keith Gabriel on December 20, 2012 in Aviation -- 4 Comments

The decals on this kit “exploded” as soon as they hit the water, those that didn’t promptly fell apart on contact with the model. With very few after market options available I scrounge around the spares box for replacements but […]

1/48 Revell BF-109 G10

by Keith Gabriel on December 20, 2012 in Aviation -- 3 Comments

This very old kit with not very many parts and despite showing it’s age it still builds beautifully. I added a True Details resin cockpit, wheels, and canopy. I scratch built some additional details into the canopy area and cockpit, […]

1/48 Hasegawa SEAC P-47 Thunderbolt

by Keith Gabriel on December 20, 2012 in Aviation -- 5 Comments

This kit was pretty much complete as a natural metal SEAC P-47, I just had to install the landing gear, canopy, etc. It was at this point that I notice that the Alcad finish had crazed in several places. Upon […]

Scratch XF-85 Goblin Egg-Plane

by Korolev Vlad on December 20, 2012 in Aviation -- 7 Comments

The fuselage is made from real egg. The other details: plastic, wire, clay.

Junkers Ju 87B-2 (Hasegawa 1:48)

by Charles Whall on December 20, 2012 in Aviation -- 16 Comments

Representing a Stuka of 2./St.G 77 based in Caen, France during August 1940 I have always been fascinated by the Stuka, especially those of the Battle of Britain period, and have wanted to build one for a long time but […]

Spitfire Mk. Vb, BM124, LO-D, 602 Sqn, as flown by Sqn. Ldr. ‘Paddy’ Finucane, 1942.

by Tony Prince on December 20, 2012 in Aviation -- 3 Comments

This is the Hobby Boss kit; supplied as the ‘trop’ version but with box contents inconsistent with the box artwork. I elected to modify some parts to produce a British (Kenley) based, early Mk. Vb as the sole windscreen in […]
