Airfix 1/144 Concorde

by Robert Royes on June 14, 2017 in Aviation -- 8 Comments

Another nostalgic build, when I saw this kit at a model show I couldn’t resist, having built one long ago, I remember hand painting the silver wings. Anyway, I had planned on doing it as one of the prototypes. but […]

Trumpeter 1/144 Tu-16k-26 Badger G

by Phil Steele on May 31, 2017 in Aviation -- 21 Comments

I initially had problems photographing this build. Because of the light gray color the fine detail always seemed to disappear. To-day with a re-shoot under a light overcast sky, I had better luck. This was an excellent Trumpeter kit, finished […]

It took a week longer than I expected but, here’s the second of my 1/144 P-47D razorbacks from Platz. I think this one turned out a little better than the previous one. I had to do some reshaping on the […]

I Like Jugs

Not too long ago I posted an article about my 1/144 P-47D bubble tops from Platz. I had a chance to pick up the razorback version at a recent model contest. Today I present one of the two kits in […]

Minicraft 1:144 C-130 gunship

by Dennis Meyers on March 26, 2017 in Aviation -- 11 Comments

Nice little kit but smoothing in the big windshield area was challenging. Built it to compliment a Hasagawa 1:200 C-130. Is a 1:72 next?

Trumpeter 1/144 H6K5 “Mavis”

by Ryan Boerema on March 7, 2017 in Aviation -- 11 Comments

From the Water Wings Group Build. Nicely fitting kit, well, for the most part, but quite a few inaccuracies, that manages somehow to be both ugly and elegant.

1/144 Airfix, OOB except for landing lights from clear sprue, finished in Humbrol, Revell and MM enamels with Future over kit decals. This aircraft carried President Franklin D. Roosevelt back from the Casablanca conference of January 1943.

Beriev Design Bureau was established in 1934 and is the synonym for the amphibian aircraft not only in Russia but on the world level as well. While most of the amphibians were propeller driven like WW2 era MBR-2 and Cold […]
