“End of the Line”

This is Trumpeter’s 1/35 Baureihe (Br-) 52 Kriegslocomotive with Steifrahmentender, but for this project I had no interest in the tender, or the sleepers and rails that built-up into a composite display base. The base here is plaster cast, purchased […]

IL-28 Beagle – Trumpeter 1/72

When I was ordered to build the IL-28 for a customer, I was expecting a more or less good model, but what I truly received was the old trumpeter H-5. Basically, it’s the Chinese copy of the soviet frontline bomber. […]

iModeler Review: Trumpeter 1/35 Tiger I late w/Zimmerit (09540) – Part 2

Basic Construction is Basic. Building the kit is very straight forward – after all, the Tiger is more or less a box with some doodads attached to it. I followed the first steps of the instructions and attached the swing […]

Westland Wyvern S. Mk. 4

During WW II the Royal navy invented a strange breed of aircraft called the torpedo fighter. One TF, the Bristol Beaufighter was a success but it was converted from an existing aircraft. Another, the Blackburn Firebrand, was purpose built for […]

South African Nationals 2018: Aircraft

These aircraft were just some of the many models entered in the 1/72 – 1/32 scale classes. My Westland Wyvern 1/48 Trumpeter was awarded the best in show for 1/48 scale and my Huey Hog Gunship 1/35 Academy MRC for […]

This time is a Trumpeter reference at 1/35 scale. I don’t like specially the paperpanzers, but I enjoyed building this one.

Mk.23 MTVR USMC Cargo Truck: Tow Vehicle for my M198 155mm Gun

Last week I posted my build of the Trumpeter 1/35 M198 155mm Howitzer Gun. I received some good feedback and some asked if I built something to tow it. This article is a response to that question. Yes, I put […]

iModeler Review: Trumpeter 1/35 Tiger I late w/Zimmerit (09540) – Part 1

Finally, a Tiger. Said no one, ever. Let’s face it: The Tiger I has to be one of the most kitted tanks in the history of scale modeling. A quick check on the interwebs shows the impressive number of 96 […]

Trumpeter 1/35 M198 155mm Towed Howitzer (Late)

This is the 1st and only stand alone cannon I ever built. I enjoy taking on different subjects and this fit the bill. This was a fairly easy, average level build appropriate for all model makers with a bit of […]

1/350th Trumpeter USS Massachusetts: A Childhood Memory

The battleship USS Massachusetts is currently moored as a museum ship in Fall River, MA. It has been there since the 1960s. I grew up about 20mins away so as a young child this was my first look at a […]
