My JV-44 Dora 9

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 with the result. A major addition is the exquisi[...]

Zvezda 1/48 Bf109F-2

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.

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 of this plane. The painte[...]

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

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 the stash so off we go for a double build! [...]

Alan Clark’s stunning Hawker Tempest

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 magnificent 1/16 scale scratchbui[...]
