Building, painting and finishing aircraft models of all scales.

1:48 scale Eduard F6F-5 Hellcat

by Drew Tarter on May 2, 2017 in Aviation -- 36 Comments

Here’s my latest effort, Eduard’s 1:48 scale F6F-5 Hellcat ‘Weekend Edition’ (which, ironically, took me six months to complete.) The Eduard series of 1:48 scale Hellcats were hailed as the best in scale when they were released in 2008. They […]

Hawker Sea Fury FB.11 REAF (1:48, AMG)

by Martin Dytrych on May 1, 2017 in Aviation -- 14 Comments

Here is my latest build, Hawker Sea Fury in Royal Egypt Air Force service. Honestly, this was mentioned as “build just for fun and display case”. Even if I wanted, this kit is not good enough for any competition. Too […]

1/48 Monogram TBD-1 Devastator

by Tom Bebout on April 30, 2017 in Aviation -- 18 Comments

First, this is not a Midway Group build model. It is however one of the first Navy kits I wanted to build back in 2010 when I re-started my interest in this hobby. Build mostly straight out of the box, […]

It’s been a while since I have posted an article with a completed build here on Imodeler. I have been very busy lately, with the Midway group build, and some projects going on out in the work shop. The other […]

Monogram McDonnell-Douglas F-15C Eagle

by Gary Brantley on April 30, 2017 in Aviation -- 17 Comments

This is another older build, circa early-mid 1990s. It had never had a photograph made until the late February session with my Me-262 at the Cameron airport. It’s painted with Humbrol and Model Master enamels and built basically out of […]

SNJ, T-6, Harvard, an old friend.

by Robert Royes on April 27, 2017 in Aviation -- 17 Comments

My association with this type began when as a kid when I lived close to Flushing airport in Queens N.Y. A small private airport at that time[ 1960’s and ’70’s] the skytyping team, flying SNJ-2’s operated out of there. They […]

1/72 Italeri, almost OOB, I replaced the three barrels of the gun with thin piano wire, finished in MM enamels with Future and MM FS30000 acrylic over kit decals, built previous to 2004, all my US service helicopters posted now […]

Hobby Boss 1/48th F-14A Tomcat

by Boris Rakic on April 25, 2017 in Aviation -- 18 Comments

Having been brought up on a healthy diet of “Top Gun” and “The Final Countdown”, the F-14 Tomcat to me is *the* icon of modern military aircraft. And some time ago I decided to finally start on the Hobby Boss’ […]
