Lindberg 1/72 Me-410

by Jim Watts on November 13, 2012 · in Aviation — 3 Comments

Yes the old Lindberg Me-410, I do like Lindberg kits, rivet coated, thick canopies, one piece tailplanes, funny shapes here and there, but they are fun to put together.. I didn’t do much to this one, just polished up that […]

Tamiya 1:48 Swordfish

by Larry J. Allen on November 13, 2012 · in Aviation — 2 Comments

This was an ‘off and on again’ project, mainly due to self induced problems. I still don’t have the sequence of rigging steps figured out, and when they should fit in the construction, painting and weathering stages. I had no […]

1/72 Italeri Stuka B2

by Dany Hovinga on November 12, 2012 · in Aviation — 3 Comments

This is a pretty much out of the box Stuka B2 from Italeri. I did add my own cockpit detail with styrene strip and other pieces. I used decals from Eaglecals. Painted using model master acrylic paint and weathered with […]

Italeri 1:48 Ju87B-2 Trop, 1./StG3 S7+KH

by Charles Whall on November 12, 2012 · in Aviation — 6 Comments

Hi folks, Well between struggling to get motivated and finding time to build, I have actually completed what I started in February. A really nice kit providing lots of opportunity for extra detailing! I spruced up the cockpit and added […]

Dragon 1/6th scale machine gun series

by Craig Abrahamson on November 12, 2012 · in Armor — 1 Comment

The only gripe I have with the manufacturer is the lack of directions. The “instruction sheet” is one piece of paper with a black & white photograph of the assembled model with part numbers and arrows pointed toward the general […]

1/48 PB-1W Conversion

by Dan DeSilva on November 11, 2012 · in Aviation — 9 Comments

This conversion languished for a very long time- about 4 years. I got the Paragon PB-1W Conversion, and a Monogram 1/48 B-17G, then the kit and conversion sat, and sat. I got hold of a great reference book- “B-17 In […]

The remainder of my fledgling Navy

by Craig Abrahamson on November 11, 2012 · in Ships — 1 Comment

Both kits are 1/350th scale (in keeping with the Wasp)…the USS Freedom just plain looked cool – AND it has helicopters [aircraft, remember?]. The Los Angeles class sub was like a 2-hour “project” – never built a submarine before – […]

Bf-109G-4 1/32 Promodeler

by Victor R. Russell JR on November 11, 2012 · in Aviation — 6 Comments

I started this and a Hasegawa 109G-6 together over 4+ years ago working along with the Floyd Werner video for building the Hasegawa 1/32 109’s. It was shelved for a reason I can’t remember and I pulled the G-4 down […]

WASP Amphibious Assault Ship

by Craig Abrahamson on November 11, 2012 · in Ships

Gallery Models 1/350th scale USS Wasp had a plethora of aircraft included – it’s what caught my eye as a [primarily] aircraft model enthusiast. It seemed a daunting task at first, but after a few weeks, it started to become […]

USS Hornet – Doolittle’s Raiders

by Craig Abrahamson on November 11, 2012 · in Ships — 2 Comments

I picked up this 1/700th scale ‘waterline’ kit and decided I’d try something “off the wall” with it. I’m not usually a “ship guy”, but I wanted to try an idea I had. i took some aluminum foil, crumpled it […]
