Minicraft 1:144 C-130 gunship

by Dennis Meyers on March 26, 2017 · in Aviation — 11 Comments

Nice little kit but smoothing in the big windshield area was challenging. Built it to compliment a Hasagawa 1:200 C-130. Is a 1:72 next?

VW New Beetle (Tamiya 1/24)

by Dmitry Stropalov on March 26, 2017 · in Automotive — 5 Comments

I’ve never tried this kind of the scale modeling – cars in 1/24 scale. And this Beetle is my first attempt in it. I don’t know anything about scale model cars, so I’ve enjoyed something completely new to me. Base […]

Eduard 1/48 Mig-21 MF

by Michael Booth on March 26, 2017 · in Aviation — 17 Comments

As the profipack, the kit comes with extra detail and of course masks. Only problems occurring was a tiny gap in the wing root, flimsy front landing gear and a slight bent nose aerial. Painting was done in Tamiya and […]

by Michael Drover on March 26, 2017 · in Aviation — 17 Comments

Whoa, Nellie!

by Scott Nelson on March 25, 2017 · in Aviation — 19 Comments

Here’s my 1/72 Hasegawa G3m Nell. A straightforward build although masking the clear parts was tedious even with a pre-cut mask set. I tried post-shading panel lines with powders on this one. Probably won’t do that again. I think I […]

148 Trumpeter Hawker Sea Hawk FGA 6

by Tom Cleaver on March 24, 2017 · in Aviation — 10 Comments

A review from 2007: The Hawker Sea Hawk was the first completely successful British jet-powered carrier fighter. It was roughly equivalent to the U.S. Grumman F9F Panther, with which it shared a powerplant – the very successful Nene centrifugal turbojet […]
