Hurricane for Christmas

by George Tufnail on December 18, 2012 · in Aviation — 3 Comments

This is a ten day wonder. It is the Airfix 1/48 scale kit, and took me about 14 hours total over 10 days. The personal markings are home made as is the aircraft ID. Under the tail is my brother-in-laws […]

B-17G “Chow Hound” Revell 1/48

by Billy Smith on December 17, 2012 · in Aviation — 4 Comments

This plane was my third official build and it was and still is my favorite build, but the b-26 will probably surpass this plane for the favorite build spot once I finish it. This plane was my first real attempt […]

Italeri 1/72 RCN H04S-3

by George Tufnail on December 17, 2012 · in Aviation — 5 Comments

No real reason why I built this kit. I build very few whirly-birds, but this one just appealed to me. It is kinda cute. All of the high-vis is Testors Flourescent Red, out of the little square bottle we all […]

by Tom Cleaver on December 17, 2012 · in Ships — 5 Comments

Trumpeter’s 1/350 Admiral Graf Spee, done as she looked at the Battle of the River Plate, December 17, 1939. I remember seeing “Death In The South Atlantic”, the US title for “Battle of the River Plate” in about 1957-58. Saw […]

1/48th AFV Club, Sturmtiger

by Walt Babst on December 16, 2012 · in Armor — 5 Comments

I broke one of my own rules and bought this kit a short while (probably 6-8 months) back when Squadron ran a great deal on it. I had always liked the vehicle regardless of its impracticality and the real lack […]

Blue Max 1/48 Halberstadt CL.II

by Merrill Anderson on December 16, 2012 · in Aviation — 5 Comments

Some more of my ‘paleomodeling’, the Blue Max Halberstadt. I have always liked the lines of the Halberstadt CL’s. The kit was a typical ‘limited production’ from a few years back, you had to make the parts go together. Covered […]

Eduard 1:48 SPAD S.XIII

by Maxim Bylkin on December 16, 2012 · in Aviation — 16 Comments

Model of dioramas, about which I have spoken. Almost from box assembly, said only the pilot. Perhaps the aircraft will be too yellow, my mistake, but had to paint in the evenings under the lamp. And so probably got the […]

Revell Hawker Hunter F.MK.6

by Stephen W Towle on December 16, 2012 · in Aviation — 2 Comments

This has got to be one of the all time classic’s of fighters of the 50’s and is right up there with the F-86 in the looks dept. Once I saw the kit sitting on the shelves of my local […]
