Supermarine Walrus MK I (1/48 Special Hobby)

This is an old kit, the Special Hobby 1/48 that I started to build in 2017 before seeing the first pictures of the future Airfix in the same scale. I chose to continue my model by trying to raise it […]

This is my first completed build of 2018, and my first submission to iModeler. It’s also the first 1/72 scale model I’ve tackled since I was 14 yrs old. And tackle it I did with Special Hobby’s Fw 187, released […]

Filling the gaps – Special Hobby’s 1/48 T-2C Buckeye

Nuts. I have a confession to make: I think I have a couple of screws loose. That is the only explanation I have for my overarching modeling theme – building a complete collection of US military hardware from the 1920s […]

Special Hobby 1/32 Bristol M.1C

The Yakovlev Yak-3 is commonly considered the best sub-type of the wartime Yakovlev fighter series that began with the Yak-1. The Yak-3 was one of the smallest and lightest major combat fighters fielded by any combatant; its high power-to-weight ratio […]
