1/32 Ki.100-1b

by Tom Cleaver on December 21, 2012 · in Aviation — 3 Comments

This is the Hasegawa Ki.61 kit with the Alley Cat drop-fit fuselage conversion for the Ki.100-1b. One of the easiest conversions out there, a good one for a modeler who hasn’t done a lot of conversions to start with.

Tamiya 1/35 – M-51 Sherman

by Nick Newell on December 21, 2012 · in Armor — 6 Comments

A period of me-time between contracts afforded the opportunity to make Tamiya’s new 1/35 M-51 Sherman. I’ve been wanting to build a HVSS Sherman for ages and this kit is an absolute ripper – easy to build with fantastic detail […]

1/48 Revell (Pro-Modeler) SB2C-3 Helldiver

by Tom Cleaver on December 21, 2012 · in Aviation — 4 Comments

Another “book project creates a model project” from TCWorld. I am currently writing what is becoming a book that looks like it will be “definitive” – “Fabled Fifteen: Air Group 15 in the Pacific War.” Just this week I got […]

1/48 Tamiya F4F Wildcat

by Keith Gabriel on December 20, 2012 · in Aviation — 11 Comments

Built straight out of the box after being rescued at a yard sale. The model had been painted with a dark blue rattle can and most of the detail had been badly obscured. Luckily the paint stripped off easily with […]

1/48 Promodeler Ju 87R-2

by Keith Gabriel on December 20, 2012 · in Aviation — 5 Comments

Nicely detailed kit with some basic photoetch from Eduard. The hardest part was masking the canopy framing! The decals are from Aeromaster just for something different than those that were supplied in the box. This was one of my first […]

1/48 Promodeler Me 410

by Keith Gabriel on December 20, 2012 · in Aviation — 4 Comments

This is a fairly decent kit with beautiful cockpit detail, the only issue is the multi-part canopy which I damaged in the build, luckily I secured a spare from Revell parts replacement. Meng Models has just released a new boxing […]

Roden 1/48 SE5a, (Mick Mannock)

by Merrill Anderson on December 20, 2012 · in Aviation — 5 Comments

This is another old build. It’s the Roden SE, the Part PE set was not available when I started the kit, so I scratched some detail, and used the limited old set for the Aurora/Monogram kit. The one up to […]

1/48 Dragon Ta 154

by Keith Gabriel on December 20, 2012 · in Aviation — 4 Comments

The decals on this kit “exploded” as soon as they hit the water, those that didn’t promptly fell apart on contact with the model. With very few after market options available I scrounge around the spares box for replacements but […]
