1:350th Academy BISMARCK

by Tony Anderton on April 14, 2016 in Ships -- 7 Comments

Built straight from the box, using grey and red oxide “rattlecans” and brushes. Searchlights were enhanced using some crafters “crystal embelishments”…happy with the result considering i’ve been away from modelling for about 20 years.

Russian T5 torpedo boat

This is the Merit 1/35 scale kit. It’s been quite awhile since I posted anything or finished anything but here we go. The kit was a very nice build, no flash or ejector pin marks tha show up. The hull […]

Zhengdefu Missle Boat Type 021

by Joe Caputo on March 24, 2016 in Ships -- 11 Comments

First off, the scale is undetermined by me. It’s not the advertised 1/72 but closer to 1/125-1/150th, perhaps 1/144th. It measures around 13″ in length. The instructions leave a lot to be desired as the whole kit is built in […]

Merit 1/35 Royal Navy X Craft

Hi Everyone, Having now got to grips with all my pictures on my laptop, I thought I would share this recently built model with you all. This is a really nice kit, very simple, but very detailed, and is built […]

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 […]

Revell 1/72 Type VII U Boat

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 […]

Trumpeter 1/350 USS Indenpedence LCS-2

by Goran Perger on January 10, 2016 in Ships -- 5 Comments

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 […]

Hasegawa 1/450 IJN Akagi

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 […]
