Revell Fire Fighter

by Rick Abramson on October 24, 2017 in Ships -- 15 Comments

This is the original Revell Fire Fighter from 1962. The props and water monitors are “brass plated.” I originally built the model around 1979. Over the years, the white “yellowed” and looked terrible. I actually disassembled the model very carefully […]

USS Olympia

by Rick Abramson on October 20, 2017 in Ships -- 10 Comments

This is the old Revell USS Olympia. I used photo etched railings and ratlines and wood decking appliques by Artwox. The first shot is before I rigged her. Second shot is a close-up. She actually had an auxiliary sail rig.

USS Maryland

This is a 1/350 scale model I built of the USS Maryland, SSBN-738 a Trident Class Boomer. I wish someone made a 1/350 scale model of the battleship USS Maryland with the cage masts.

by Won-hui Lee on October 13, 2017 in Ships -- 27 Comments

1/700 Scale This diorama is Iwo jima landing operation. Actually, the actual landing was carried out with LVT and Sherman Tank, but the LVT and sherman tank’s details were very low. So I exclude them. This diorama is distant from […]
