Building, painting and finishing aircraft models of all scales.

Z-M 1/32nd scale Skyraider

by Craig Abrahamson on November 10, 2012 in Aviation -- 3 Comments

I opted to build mine sans the wing-fold mechanism (obviously) and with the gear up – also obviously – I therefore have a plethora of extra parts, both from the kit AND the weapons set. If anyone needs/wants any pieces/parts, […]

My JV-44 Dora 9

by Adam Dormer on November 9, 2012 in Aviation -- 1 Comment

This is my 1/32 Hasegawa Fw-190 D9. This was a long term build taking five years. I wanted to have a go at “riveting” and I used the MDC tool. This was a painful and tedious process, but I’m happy […]

Zvezda 1/48 Bf109F-2

by Mark Sullivan on November 9, 2012 in Aviation -- 2 Comments

In my opinion Zvezda’s Bf109F is the best in 1/48. very well detailed, and goes together just as well. I painted her with Floquil Military enamels, and Model Master enamels. After market decals are from Aeromaster if I’m not mistaken.

Here are a few snaps of my latest completion, the old, but very good, 1/32 Hasegawa kit painted as the 4th section leader of VF-6’s aircraft. I worked on this model on-and-off (mostly off) over the past 3 years and […]

1/32 Hasegawa Ki-84 Hayate

by Thomas Lund on November 9, 2012 in Aviation -- 2 Comments

What a wonderfull kit, everything just fell together. I added an Aires cockpit and Eduard flaps and even those fit like a dream (yes even the Aires bits). I looked around for a good scheme and came across this painting […]

A Spitfire Mk 22/24 double-build in 1/72!

by Magnus Fridsell on November 4, 2012 in Aviation -- 4 Comments

At the same time as I bought the Mustang I also picked up another one of Airfix´s latest offerings, the Spitfire 22. And since I am a Spitfire fan I of course also happened to have the Xtrakit kit in […]

Alan Clark’s stunning Hawker Tempest

by Editor on October 31, 2012 in Aviation -- 9 Comments

Posting the first article on a new site takes a lot of deliberation, as one would very much like it to be reflective of the site’s vision. I can find no better object to inaugurate iModeler with than this, the […]
