1/48 Minicraft P-38L Putt Putt Maru

I had the Minicraft 1/48 P-38J kit- but it sat for a while because I was not sure how I would deal with all the stripes on the tail and spinners. The decals from the kit sheet and the Hasegawa […]

1/48 Minicraft F4U-4B VMF-323 Korea

This F4U-4B has all the same modifications as my other F4U-4B here on Imodeler, except that the wings are not folded, and I have used a flap set from the Verlinden F4U-4 detail set for the Hasegawa kit. The weapons […]

1/48 Minicraft F4U-4B VMF-214 Korea

I built one of my Minicraft 1/48 F4U-4B kits with Tamiya 1/48 F4U wing fold hinge parts. I made resin copies of Tamiya 1/48 F4U-1 oil cooler inlets, then cut out 3 of the vanes to modify them to match […]

The Wooden Bee and the Story of the Auca Five

Boeing C-97G Stratofreighter 0-30152 – Minicraft 1/144

Few pics of my Stratofrighter with scratchbuilt flaps and cowling. Show the last pictures. This kit was not easy to build and need many corrections.

1/72nd Minicraft PBM-5 Mariner

I found the Minicraft PBM-5 to be an enjoyable build but not without its challenges. For the most part, the kit is nicely engineered with clean crisp parts and finely recessed panel lines. On the negative side, I found that […]

Navy Ace Guy Bordelon, VC-3 Korea, Minicraft F4U-5N Corsair

This is something that I have been wanting to do for a long time now…………………..each year passes and I would miss it, so here goes. Since today is Memorial Day here in the US, and in honor of our fallen […]

Minicraft 1:144 C-130 gunship

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?
