1/48th Tamiya Bf 109E4

by Walt Babst on December 15, 2012 · in Aviation — 6 Comments

This is just a fun little kit and with all the 109’s showing up I thought I might put up this one. I usually build a little more weathered, but I still like this one. I built Galland’s plane, adding […]

A-10 Warthog 1/48 Monogram

by Eric aka The Yankymodeler on December 15, 2012 · in Aviation — 5 Comments

This is the model that got me back into the hobby after a decade long absence, 1/48 Monogram A-10 with a few tweaks. While being fairly well immobilized by a foot injury, I found two Monogram A-10s in my closet. […]

Since everybody likes 109s, here’s the long-awaited Hasegawa Bf-109F-4, done as Marseille’s “Gelbe 14” with Lifelike Decals. Paints are Xtracrylix, “sun faded.” Model done last year when it was first released. The “Friedrich” was the best combination of engine and […]

1/32 Bf-109B-2

by Tom Cleaver on December 15, 2012 · in Aviation — 3 Comments

The Eduard Bf-109E-1 modified to Bf-109B-2 with the Alley-Cat conversion set. Very easy. There’s been no end of confusion over the camouflage the first Bf-109B’s were in when sent to Spain. I agree with Lynn Ritger’s research, that they were […]

Republic F-84F Thunderstreak Monogram 1/48

by Gary Brantley on December 15, 2012 · in Aviation — 13 Comments

Maybe it’s my age, well, I was born in 1952 after all, but I really like the jets from the ’50s. To me, they just look like a jet fighter is supposed to. It seems that to aircraft designers back […]

Monogram B-25J “Solid Jackson”

by Stephen W Towle on December 15, 2012 · in Aviation — 9 Comments

This model is one of my favorite Monogram kits. Their B-25 has a typical Monogram fit of being a little loose in the fit dept and is not up to days standards of CAD designed engineered models. However, with some […]

Airfix New tooled Spitfire XIX

by Stephen W Towle on December 15, 2012 · in Aviation — 3 Comments

What I love about these new tooled Airfix kits are the simplicity and directness of the design of models. This one was built OOB. The decals work reasonably well given the price paid for the kit and are way better […]

Finished this one last year. It took me a year to build to the day I called it finished. Posted on another site, but one of my all time favorites. And fun to build. It is a 1/48 scale AMT/ERTL […]

U-96 “Das Boot”

by Bill Weckel on December 14, 2012 · in Ships — 7 Comments

This is the fourth model I built, and after doing three aircraft, I was in the mood to do a warship. The big Revel 1/72 scale U-boat kit was fairly new at the time, and I was eager to see […]
