Tamiya 1:48 Kurogane The model is a typical Tamiya, just to build. It is missing some details, but there are certainly photoets to detail with if you want.

The Airfix Bird dog in the scheme of a NZ owned aircraft ZK-NAM. I replaced the ill fitting cokpit roof clear parts, and removed the horrible ejector pin marks on the tail and wings, but left everything pretty much as […]

Do you like Shermans?

by Stevie Gibson on November 14, 2012 · in Armor — 4 Comments

I do. I used to hate them. I thought they were very ugly and brutish. I do love T-34s and thought they look very sleek and streamlined. Upon building my first sherman, I fell in love with them too and […]

1/48th Tamiya F4U Corsair

by Craig Abrahamson on November 14, 2012 · in Aviation — 5 Comments

As with all Tamiya kits, this one practically built itself (which is a GOOD thing, because if left to my own devices, I usually manage to mess sumthin’ up). There were no fit issues, as with any Tamiya example I’ve […]

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
