by Tom Cleaver on December 29, 2012 · in Aviation — 9 Comments

This was done about 2004. The Falcon 1/48 F.R. XVIII vacuform. Still the most accurate Spitfire XIV/XVIII in 1/48. I used a resin cockpit (something I had, nobody can really tell the detail differences between Spitfire cockpits in 1/48 scale […]

Summing up 2012!

by Magnus Fridsell on December 29, 2012 · in Aviation — 6 Comments

Not a very good year modelling-wise with only three kits finished. The fact that two of them are very small doesn’t make it more impressive either! So here we go, two MiG-21s from Eduard in 1/144 scale. One Slovak one […]

This short-tailed Bf109G-14 was the benificiary of a tail swap from their Hartmann 109G-6 kit. It was built to represent the mount of Lt. Heinz Ewald of 7./JG-52 while based at Veszprem, Hungary in the Fall of 1944. Ewald survived […]

DML/Dragon 1/48 Ju-188A-4

by Bryan W. Bernart on December 28, 2012 · in Aviation — 7 Comments

This one took a while-both due to the quirkiness of the build and my indecision as to a paint scheme. Most of the kit decals were suspect so I ended up hitting the spares box. As a result, this example […]

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

This is the Special Hobby 1/32 kit of the Nieuport 11, done OOB. It’s the only model out there in this scale of the Nieuport Bebe, and looks very nice sitting next to any WNW kit.

This little scene portrays a Chaffee with its crew scouting for enemy activity on the outskirts of a German town during the late winter of 1945. The kit used is the newish Bronco offering built largely out of the box. […]

1/48th Dragon Ho-229B Nachtjager

by Walt Babst on December 27, 2012 · in Aviation — 6 Comments

I enjoy building WWII Luftwaffe night fighters. When I saw this kit I jumped at it. I loved the idea of the flying wing night fighter with Hs298 air-to-air missles. This was my second Dragon kit and it followed the […]
