U.S.S. Indianapolis “1944”

by Ralph Clements on February 15, 2016 in Ships -- 16 Comments

Here’s my rendition of the famous U.S.S. Indianapolis. It is the Trumpeter 1/350 scale 1944 version. It is mostly out of the box, with a Eduard railing set, made for the Academy kit, so it took some adjusting to make […]

Hello everyone, Here is my first completion for 2016. It was built as a commission for a friend at work. You may recall a previous build I posted of another submarine I built, also for said same friend. A couple […]

My last of model of 2015. 🙂 It could be better, especially painting part, but I am satisfied. This is my first work with PE parts 🙂 Feel free to comment, good or bad. Thank you.

1/700 USS Maryland BB-46

by John Healy on November 9, 2015 in Ships -- 12 Comments

This is the recent Trumpeter kit, which was apparently developed by Pit-Road in Japan. I love ships and ship models, but being PE challenged, they usually don’t love me. This is the first one that I feel that I’ve finished […]

H.M.C.S. Huron

by Ralph Clements on November 8, 2015 in Ships -- 12 Comments

My first model ship since my age was single digits, many, many moons ago… Trumpeter 1/350 H.M.C.S. Huron, ‘1944’ per package. I think that may be true as many features of the superstructure are more complex or not shown at […]

by Michael Booth on October 28, 2015 in Ships -- 18 Comments

Well, another kit has been made and this is a good first for me. I started getting into ship building when learning about Imperial Japanese Navy ships during ww2, and have actually got me caught on the hook, learning their […]

Italeri 1/35 Elco PT boat.

by Tappie Scholtz on October 17, 2015 in Ships -- 12 Comments

This model was a commission build for a very good friend of mine. It took me two weeks from start to finish and it was an absolute pleasure to build. The kit fitted together without any hassle. The plastic used […]

100th scale HMS Victory.

by Robert Aspinall on September 18, 2015 in Ships -- 14 Comments

After a long break of several years I have restarted my build of Heller’s monster! I put about five years of work researching and scratch building parts including the ships boats. I’ve put some time in over the past week […]

1/350 ACADEMY USS Indianapolis CA-35

by Goran Perger on August 27, 2015 in Ships -- 7 Comments

This is my first ship build and my second build generally. I went to make a build straight OUB without any PE sets. Colors I used are maybe litlle to dark, but I used colors suggested on the box. Hoping […]
