SAAF Saab JAS 39 Gripen C — 48th scale kit by Kitty Hawk (kit no. KH80117)

This was the third of my South African Air Force jet builds. The kit gave me virtually no issues, apart from the dive brakes not fitting too well in the closed position. Finish is good and the surface detail is […]

Year of the Cat Group Build. 1/48 scale Tamiya F4F-4 Wildcat

When Louis announced this group project I had already been eyeballing my trusty old Tamiya kit that had been sitting on shelf for some time. This was just the excuse I needed to get it going. I choose to go […]

The Airport Rotating Beacon

Every airport diorama needs a rotating beacon. To fill that function, I purchased a Lionel rotating beacon, model 494. However there are many problems with accuracy, as this unit is intended for “O” scale electric train layouts not noted for […]

Year of the Cat Group Build. Monogram 1/48 F9F Panther from The Bridges at Toko-Ri

I’ve been wanting to do a Panther for a while. I had a stillborn attempt back when I was in high school when the kit first came out. I was impressed at how well it went together and have always […]

I grew up near a NASCAR short-track called “Seekonk Speedway”. As a kid and an adult I loved the look of these short-track cars. But as a kid I struggled with getting the model cars to look like the real […]

1/35 Takom Chieftain Mk.11 Main Battle Tank

This is the 1st Takom model I have built and was excited to give it a go. At the time of purchase it was a brand new release for them. I think they have covered most of the versions of […]

iModeler update – editable comments, private groups

One of the most requested features at iModeler has been the ability to edit one’s own comments to articles. Unfortunately, it was not possible for us to deliver this functionality in the previous version of our software platform. Today, with […]

Year of the Cat: 1/48 Testors/Hawk F8F-2 Bearcat

I want to thank Louis Gardner for starting this group build and inviting me to come along with my cat entry. Since I was a little late to the party I picked a kit that I thought would be simple […]

1/32 MT FUJI EAGLE JASDF

I had wanted to do this project for such a LOOOOONG time! Searched for the kit/decals for over a decade and finally resigned myself to the fact that it was permanently out of print. Then a 1/72 scale, sealed Hasegawa […]

WIP Hasegawa 1/72 F-16 Falcon CJ with lights

Here’s the latest project – Falcon at night with lights and afterburner. Took whole lotta nerves to solder all those tiny wires, almost threw it all away, but it finally worked. Glueing top and bottom part of the fuselage while […]
