IPMS Three Rivers: TRICON 2013

Saturday, March 23 saw another enjoyable TRICON come and go. There were 72 entrants, and 253 models on the tables. Lots of deals were to be had at the vendor tables, as most were independent sellers “thinning the herd”. A […]

iModeler Review: Tamiya 1/72 Ilyushin IL-2 Shturmovik

A few months ago, Tamiya released what is, most likely, the new standard for 1/48 IL-2 Shturmovik. The kit has thus been lauded for its engineering, beauty, and ease of assembly. There was also, as I remember, a bit of […]

Fujimi FW-190D-9 “Black 10″

I bought this old Fujimi 1/48 kit at a model close-out at a Michael’s store many years ago. Since I only paid a few dollars for it, when I finally got around to building the plane, 15-20 years ago, I […]

Thought the Wildcat thing petered out, eh? My Kid’s F4F-3….

Hobbyboss 1/48 F4F-3 “Early” built by my son, Kyle a while ago. I happen to think Hobby Boss really got this one right, and it really looks spiffy in the early wargames scheme. If I recall this one was a […]

Booty Nieuport 27C1 Converting Hobbycraft kit in 1/32

This Greek Army inventory Nieuport 27 captured in airworthy condition at Gaziemir (Paradiso) airfield by the end of Turkish War of Independence in 1922. Named Ganimet-4 (Booty-4) and used for training duties until 1927 in Turkish Air Force. As no […]

Tamiya Spitfire Mk.IX. 1/32nd. scale.

As much as I love Spitfires, this one took me rather a long time; six month, give or take & I completed a few others while I was having a break. Lovely detail & fit & absolutely spot on for […]

1:48 scale Hobby Boss F4F-3, “Wildcat”

Remember that F4F-3 I saw in the hobby shop after I finished converting the Tamiya F4F-4 to a -3? Well, I bought one and decided to see how it stacked up against the Tamiya kit. In my opinion, Tamiya is […]

It’s another 1:48 scale Otaki F6F-3, “Hellcat”

Hey folks, This is one of my very early efforts at building a model seriously. Otaki does make a really nice Hellcat, even for it’s age. With all the posts of some of these older models, it kind of makes […]

Another 78th FG P-47 – Frank Oiler’s “Eileen” – 1/32 hasegawa

With two other 78th FG P-47s up today, I might as well follow the theme. I’ve done a lot of studying this past year of these P-47s while writing “Aces of the 78th Fighter Group” (which Osprey will publish this […]

Republic P-47D Thunderbolt “Okie”

Well, yesterday was a busy day at the Cameron airport. I finally had an opportunity to spend a couple hours out there and photographed three more planes. These were the very first digital pics ever of this one, a Republic […]
