Hello. My name is Jordyn Collier. I am a Junior in highschool, I am 17 years old, and I am in Air Force JROTC, where I shoot on our Air Rifle Team. I’ve been modelling for a few years now, and this hobby is by far the greatest thing that has happened to me. It helped me through some of the toughest areas of my teenage life, and I always enjoy finding out the history of what I build. I firmly believe in the importance of preserving history for what it was, and do not shy away from my opinions. I plan on joining the military by the end of Highschool, where I’ll serve for as long as I’m able. If you have served, help in figuring out a branch would be appreciated!

Accurate Miniatures 1/48 TBM Avenger

This Avenger was one of the absolute best model kits I've ever had the pleasure to put together, all thanks to Jay Mitchell. He sent me this model a while back in an effort to clean out his stash, and I took every opportunity to try new things. [...]

Did someone say 2020 builds?

Hey y'all! This year has been utter garbage. Nobody can deny that. But amid the chaos, our wonderful hobby has flourished and prospered, with the exception of a few sad losses we have seen in the headlines. But no doubt about it, this year has[...]

Korea GB: Tamiya 1/35 M-41 Walker Bulldog

Ok this build was amazing. I absolutely love Tamiya and I only ever want to build their tanks now haha! The only downside per say was the tracks, which I figured a way to do well. But it's done! For now, at least. You may see it again. Not sure [...]

Tamiya 1/35 Nashorn

This kit was absolutely friggin beautiful. I highly, highly recommend it for anyone. The Nashorn, formerly referred to as the Hornisse (Hornet), was a formidable tank destroyer with an open top Pz III/IV hull, a crew of 5, and the widely feare[...]

Tamiya 1/72 Fw 190

Apparently this never posted, but hey, stuff happens. This is my Fw 190 that I completed about a month ago. I had gotten this as an early christmas gift from my mom, who knew I wouldnt be at her house for christmas, so I tried my best to make[...]

Academy 1/48 F4U-1 Corsair

I bring to you my F4U-1 Corsair in 1/48th scale, a gift from Louis Gardner. This model was a labor to build. I loved the kit so much. It was a fun project and even had some unexpected challenges fit wise that I ended up solving. I thought the pr[...]

Thank you Robert Royes, aka roofrat!

A late arrival, mostly due to me because I havent been here in a week to check the mail, but I would like to thank Mr. Robert Royes, who sent me this 1/48 scale M4 Sherman and Fw 190 by monogram. This came with a display, so keep an eye out, Rob[...]

Hey yall. I've been considering saving up for an airbrush so I can make my painting easier and better. Do any of you know of a trustworthy and well made one?

Thank you Gary!

In addition to Chuck, Louis, and Tom, there is yet another person to thank for my growing stash of models. For this post, its Gary Sausmikat! He sent me two Tamiya tanks, a panther and a marder III, as well as the USS Gato. He also sent me a gui[...]
