Mr. Churchill’s tank…AFV Club 1/35 Infantry escort….

by Bill Koppos on March 15, 2013 · in Armor — 10 Comments

After TONS of fiddling I’m calling this done (except of course for the commander figure I’m still fooling with). AFV Club’s Churchill namesake is a great kit. When I saw the boxart of this new release, festooned with spare track […]

P-40E Build complete, my apologies for getting toothy again.

by Patrick Herrmann on March 15, 2013 · in Aviation — 10 Comments

Here is the final product! The completed subject of my P-40 build log in the WIP page. I’ve been in a toothy mood lately so I used Baracuda Cals representing Col. Scott’s aircraft. It’s finished with MM Acryls, “faded” with […]

I converted this from the Trumpeter kit. I added significant detail to the cockpit and landing gear while also correcting the ESM gear for this updated ‘Finback’.

Tamiya 1/48 F4U-1 Corsair

by Bryan W. Bernart on March 14, 2013 · in Aviation — 10 Comments

My latest. Literally no putty, easy build, but kicked my own arse a few times by screwing it up. Splashed thinner on it after it was “done”, and had to re-flat coat, among other exercises. Built OOB with the exception […]

Craig, your not the only one with S.M.S. ( Senior Moment Syndrome ) I posted this on another site and didn’t catch the faux pas until the comments started coming in. The wing is suppose to say… “Miami”

TarHeel Hal Thunderbolt

by Craig Abrahamson on March 13, 2013 · in Aviation — 17 Comments

The decals (and paint) were a bit on the tedious side, but not a large problem area, just a mild PITA. Other than that, the kit went together famously. I am, nonetheless, having a “senior moment”, because I don’t remember […]

Tamiya 1:48, Mitsubishi Isshirikko type 11 G4M1 “Betty”

by Ulrich Schütt on March 13, 2013 · in Aviation — 7 Comments

This one I’ve build a couple of years ago. Tamiya did a very great job on this one! It was a nice plane to build. Bought the Eduard mask for the canopy, blisters and tailgun parts but it was a […]
