WNW 1/32 Roland D.VI

by Tom Cleaver on November 27, 2012 · in Aviation

I never thought I would see this airplane in a mainstream injection-molded kit, but all things do come to them as waits. As with all other WNW kits, following the instructions leads to a great model. It’s really impossible to […]

WNW 1/32 S.E.5a

by Tom Cleaver on November 27, 2012 · in Aviation

One of WNW’s first kits. Comparing it with later ones you can see there’s a definite learning curve, but don’t worry, the kit is really worthwhile. I used the True Details conversion to make James McCudden’s S.E.5a, with Pheon Decals […]

WNW 1/32 R.E.8 “‘Arry Tate”

by Tom Cleaver on November 27, 2012 · in Aviation — 2 Comments

Have I mentioned I looooooove WNW kits (thank you Sir Peter and Richard Alexander for letting me review them). I don’t know why, but I have always thought the R.E.8 looked neat since i ran across Wylam’s drawings in Model […]

Cybermodeler 1/350 USS Laffey (DD-459)

by Tom Cleaver on November 27, 2012 · in Ships — 3 Comments

One of the great Cybermodeler (Dragon) smart kits. An easy build that looks really great when completed – I only wish the instructions were as easy to follow as the kit is to build once the instructions have been puzzled […]

1/48 F4U-4 Corsair (Tamiya + CMK)

by Chris Wallace on November 27, 2012 · in Aviation — 9 Comments

Hello, This was my fist attempt at a major conversion to get a nice looking F4U-4 in 1/48. It was not an easy conversion as some of the CMK resin shrank but eventually, with a little work and some Ultracast […]

Me109-E4

by Bernard Wylie on November 27, 2012 · in Aviation — 6 Comments

My first completed model in 30 years, it’s not 100% accurate and I’ve yet to add the aerial but I’m happy with how it turned out. Airfix 1:48 club Me109 kit with Eduard PE and after market decals, airbrushed with […]

Wingnut Wings 1:32 Albatros DV.a

by Emeterio de la Iglesia Blanco on November 27, 2012 · in Aviation — 5 Comments

This is my first WWI model in 1:32 scale. The kit is superb, however I added some scratch built on the engine. Rigging was made of monofilament thread and scratch made turnbuckles. Painted with Gunze acrylics and weathered with oils. […]

Tamiya 1:48th F4U-iD

by Ross McArthur on November 27, 2012 · in Aviation — 9 Comments

I took up the challenge of a few commission builds, for a chap who builds R/C. His mission brief was for reference kits in 1:48th of RNZAF a/c used in the PTO. Normally his preference was for moderate weathering. However, […]

Trumpeter 1/350 USS San Francisco (CA-38)

by Tom Cleaver on November 27, 2012 · in Ships — 3 Comments

When I was an 18 year old sailor, I stood on the ruined bridge of USS San Francisco there in the park in the city whose name she bore, thinking to myself what might I have done had I been […]

Trumpeter 1/350 HMS Hood

by Tom Cleaver on November 27, 2012 · in Ships — 3 Comments

So, what do you do when you haven’t built a ship model since you were in Junior High School (back in the early Triassic)??? Why, go out and get one of the most complicated kits ever, get all the photoetch […]
