HE-111

by Craig Abrahamson on September 21, 2013 in Aviation -- 8 Comments

Yet another old build dusted off and presented for your dining and dancing pleasure. This time an old Revell (?) 48th scale Heinkel bomber. Don’t see a lot of these kits built anymore for some reason. It would appear that [...]

Zoukei Mura, 1:32 , Kyushu J7W1 Shinden

by Ulrich Schütt on September 21, 2013 in Aviation -- 13 Comments

My latest build. Learned a lot of new words, mainly swearing en cursing, during this build because it was a bloody PITA!!!! The engine doesn’t fit properly in the frame, nor does the parts for the cowling and guns. Did [...]

1/48 ESCI North American FJ-2/3 Fury

by Joe Caputo on September 20, 2013 in Aviation -- 13 Comments

I had this one sitting around for centuries, before I decided to build it. My Fury stash had to start somewhere, so I chose the oldest one first. Most people, it seems, did not like the ESCI version. I don’t [...]

Revell (?) 1/32 Stuka

by Craig Abrahamson on September 20, 2013 in Aviation -- 4 Comments

The smaller 48th Stuka I just posted seemed to be among your ‘favorites’, so I thought I’d dust off this old build and share some additional Stuka pics with everyone. I’m not even sure which version this particular JU-87 is, [...]

by Tom Cleaver on September 20, 2013 in Aviation -- 4 Comments

The Special Hobby 1/32 Finnish Hawk 75. Known to the Finns as the “Sussu,” this was done as the airplane flown by Kyosti Karhila, the top-scoring Finnish Hawk 75 ace (13.5 victories). Right after I finished it I discovered this [...]

Monogram 1/48 JU-87-G1 Stuka

by Craig Abrahamson on September 19, 2013 in Aviation -- 12 Comments

This is another one of my “old” (circa 1968) Monogram kits recently acquired. This was a pretty straightforward build with not a lotta ‘extra’ pieces/parts included. It’s strictly the tank buster version with the two 37mm gun pods being the [...]
