1/32 Roden 0-2 Oh no!!!!!

Well I was really looking forward to this kit. There is a fair bit of flash but that is not really a concern. I am a reasonably competent modeller but I have to say aligning and bonding the upper fuselage […]

Thunder Model 1/35 Scammell Pioneer Tank Transporter – Build Review, Part 2

The Tractor Unit As usual, there are a couple of subassemblies which need to be built up and painted before proceeding any further – in our case this will be the engine, the cab interior, the winch, and the trailer […]

Airfix 1/48 Supermarine Walrus Mk.I – Build Review, Part 1

Well, I am stepping WAY out of my “comfort zone” with this one. I have not built an aircraft model of any kind in many, MANY years. I’ll be building this one specifically as a review for IMODELER. This model […]

Lower Hull and Running Gear As with the rest of this kit, this is a very intricate assembly with lots of parts. What you end up with, however, is an articulating suspension, which makes it ideal for dioramas. As mentioned […]
