Lindberg 1/48 Gloster “Gladiator” Mk.II

by Joe Caputo on March 21, 2017 in Aviation -- 18 Comments

This is the old Life-Like, Ideal, Lindberg Gloster Gladiator. In it’s time (long ago) it was a decent kit. I modified it a little, to make a “stunt” plane out of it. The prop was from the Mk.I kit, and […]

1/48 FW-190F-8

by John Healy on March 19, 2017 in Aviation -- 36 Comments

This is the mid ’90s Tamiya kit that I’m ashamed to admit has lurked in the bowels of the stash since at least 1996. I’ve shied away from WW2 German stuff because I’ve never been very happy with my mottled […]

Hello, dear friends. It so happened that I got my hands on a set of German firms Reifra. Saying she’s revived the line when your favorite GDR-ovsky Plasticart models. Indeed, in the box lay the sprues painfully known. All in […]
