Otaki Tojo

An old Otaki kit that I had some fun with a few years ago. I love finding things like this at contest swap meets and entering them the next year!

Built out of the box. Used Extra Color, Humbrol and Model Master paints. Used streaked decals from Gunsight Graphics over a base of doped linen. Unit marking decals from Pheon, Stretched sprue was used for the rigging.

WNW 1/32 Junkers J.I

by Tom Cleaver on November 27, 2012 · in Aviation — 4 Comments

I had finally concluded no one would ever do this airplane in a mainstream injection-molded kit, but then WNW came along and made it one of their first releases. There is a problem with the ailerons having a gap at […]

WNW 1/32 Pfalz D.XII

by Tom Cleaver on November 27, 2012 · in Aviation

Another great WNW kit. I’ve said it before and will say it again: you can’t go wrong with one of these kits. Rigging on this is relatively easy for the “rigging challenged.” As is the case with the rest of […]

Hasegawa 1:48 P-40N Warhawk

by Nikola Pentić on November 27, 2012 · in Aviation — 12 Comments

I always liked the P-40N, it’s my favorite of the whole Warhawk/Kittyhawk family and I always wanted to do white-tailed New Guinea warrior. Well, here it is, my latest finished build, 1:48 P-40N from Hasegawa. The kit is beautifully detailed, […]

Corsair in flight

by George Tufnail on November 27, 2012 · in Aviation — 7 Comments

This is Tamiya’s 1/48 F4U-1A with all of the control surfaces deflected, including trim tabs, the flaps raised, and the gear retracted. I added a Monogram pilot figure with his head turned and looking up. The drop tank has just […]

WNW 1/32 D.H.9A “Ninak”

by Tom Cleaver on November 27, 2012 · in Aviation

I always wanted a model of this airplane, especially after seeing John Alcorn’s incredible 1/24 scratchbuilt Ninak in person. A big brutal British 2-seater. The model also commemorates the beginnings of Marine Corps aviation. The Northern Bombing Group was only […]

WNW 1/32 Pfalz D.IIIa

by Tom Cleaver on November 27, 2012 · in Aviation — 1 Comment

Probably my favorite of the WNW kits. Pfalz airplanes were always considered a “best second choice” but they sure looked nice. WNW did an “aftermarket” decal sheet for this Pfalz D.IIIa flown by Rudolf “Iron Man” Berthold.

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 […]
