WNW Albatros D.V

by Tom Cleaver on November 27, 2012 · in Aviation

Another great WNW kit, with Pheon Decals. Rowan invented the “fitted lozenge” decal WNW started using with their Pfalz D,XII. It makes doing a lozenge scheme totally easy.

WNW Hansa-Brandenburg W.29

by Tom Cleaver on November 27, 2012 · in Aviation

One of the great Wingnut Wings kits, the first one to sell out (so where are all the other built-ups???) As with all the other WNW kits, commit the revolutionary act of actually reading the very good instructions and following […]

Blackburn Roc

Built a few months ago (reviewed in detail at Modeling Madness), using the A2Zee conversion set for the Special Hobby kit (which had been sitting around since 2007 till I got this set which increased the interest level). The big […]

Trumpeter 1/350 Scale HMS Hood

by George Tufnail on November 27, 2012 · in Ships — 3 Comments

I have considered this to be the most fun I have ever had building a model. No fiddley photo-etch, except the three or pieces that came with the kit, just open the box and go to town. The only real […]

by Dan DeSilva on November 26, 2012 · in Aviation

I saw a profile of this aircraft- yeah I know- you should use photos not someone’s idea of a photo, but I couldn’t resist- it was the only image I could find of a cannon toting IL-2! I used Scale […]

Hobbycraft 1/48 Ju-88- with a LOT of changes

by Dan DeSilva on November 26, 2012 · in Aviation

Hi all, I got the Hobbycraft 1/48 Ju-88 unaware of all its issues! I had the support of a lot of online modelling contacts to help me fix this sow’s ear! Spare props from a Dragon Ju-88, metal gear legs […]
