1/32 Czech Models T-33

by Craig Abrahamson on November 22, 2012 · in Aviation — 2 Comments

This kit was not an easy build – not for me, anyway. There were significant fit issues, no pin holes to align the fuselage halves, landing gear struts that didn’t fit into the corresponding holes in the upper wing section, […]

1/48th English Electric Lightning

by Craig Abrahamson on November 22, 2012 · in Aviation — 5 Comments

I don’t even remember what manufacturer this was (anyone?). I do recall it was a pretty straight-forward build with no memorable issues – of course, you must keep in mind I don’t remember what I ate for lunch yesterday. It […]

Academy 1/32 FA-18 OIF

by Craig Abrahamson on November 21, 2012 · in Aviation

Another one of those (at least for me at the time) “must have” releases. Drove 40 miles to a Hobby Lobby with a 40% discount coupon in my pocket. Of course, NOW there’s a HL 6 miles from here. This […]

Beaver Float Plane

by Craig Abrahamson on November 21, 2012 · in Aviation — 5 Comments

A few years back, we were fortunate enough to go on an Alaskan cruise and I managed to cross another one off the “bucket list”. I’d flown in a hot air ballon, a glider, a bi-plane, helicopters, all sorts of […]

Heading Home

by Jack Mugan on November 20, 2012 · in Ships — 17 Comments

This was my grand adventure into creating water. I got pretty involved in the German S-Boat with a lot of aftermarket PE sets. I found a tutorial on doing water on the internet and gave it a shot. I scratch-built […]

Here is my rendition of a Legion Condor Messerschmitt Bf109E1 using the Eduard 1/32 kit. This is the aircraft of Uffz. Heinrich Windemuth, who was the last member of Jadggruppe88 KIA in Spain. He was shot down on February 6th, […]

Minicraft 1/144th BUFF

by Craig Abrahamson on November 20, 2012 · in Aviation — 3 Comments

Pretty basic 2-day build. No interior, no gear, a one-color paint job and a few decals. 1/144th isn’t usually a favorite of mine (unless it’s a pretty big aircraft to begin with) – failing eyesight and shaky hands don’t make […]

Revell 1:144 737 ”6000th 737” LN-NOL

by Robin Holm Matcham on November 20, 2012 · in Aviation — 2 Comments

My recently finished Revell 737 with Braz winglets. Nice kit, but needs adjustments. This is my first airliner, and I think it came out quite well! I used cheap rattle can for the white parts, and Revell 31 for the […]
