Revell 1/32 P-51 B/C

by Craig Abrahamson on November 25, 2012 · in Aviation — 2 Comments

I normally shy away from anything with the Revell name attached to it (old habits die hard), but I wanted to do a Red Tail version and this kit seemed [at the time], just the ticket. The raised panel lines […]

Civil War Horseman

by Jack Mugan on November 25, 2012 · in Uncategorized — 6 Comments

This was my first attempt at a large scale figure (and horse). I wanted to build this for my son-in-law who is a big fan of the Civil War history living a short distance from Gettysburg. This is a resin […]

Monogram 1/48 B-26 Marauder

by Craig Abrahamson on November 25, 2012 · in Aviation — 8 Comments

This Monogram offering was another dream to build. No fit issues, top-notch quality, details and ease of assembly. I attempted to display the OD in varying subtle shades in order to replicate variances due to weathering, replacement panels and the […]

Monogram 1/48 F-84F

by Craig Abrahamson on November 25, 2012 · in Aviation — 3 Comments

Another of Monogram’s excellent kits. I had done the “G” model earlier and the operation of the canopy, together with the swept wings, harkened me to add her sister ship. The NMF was (again) accomplished with Model Master buffable metalizers […]

Monogram 1/48th F-106 Delta Dart

by Dan DeSilva on November 23, 2012 · in Aviation — 2 Comments

Hi all, Here are some 1/48 Hasegawa F-16’s I completed during the Christmas season last year. I am a teacher, so do most work on my break times. I used the Dr Pepper resins WAR hud for the CG, and […]

Tamiya 1/48th F4U Corsair

by Craig Abrahamson on November 23, 2012 · in Aviation — 4 Comments

This, along with Tamiya’s P-47M, has got to be one of their best efforts. If there were ever that “perfect kit”, these have to be amongst the forefront. The fit, detail and quality are par excellance – my opinion of […]
