Hello. My name is Jordyn Collier. I am a sophomore in highschool, I am 16 years old, and I am in Air Force JROTC. I plan on joining the army as an infantryman (air force was the only ROTC). I live in Arizona, and many of my favorite activities involve the outdoors. I got into modeling at a young age, and it has improved drastically. A good example is the Spitfire I just built compared to the Stuka from my early years (both articles available on my page). I rather like this community of people, and I’m glad I found this site when I was looking for a paint scheme for a corsair. Seriously, I was in Google looking for corsair paint schemes, I found one I liked, clicked it, saw this url, then found this wonderful community. Keep up the good work, and happy modeling!
I really really really really like this kit. It was a blast to put together, and well worth the (rather low) price of $25 USD. I've loved putting this together to get it here to this point. I definately plan on getting more Tamiya kits in my fut[...]
I've put the fuselage halves together and did what little I could without the proper tools to try and minimize the gaps. I dont have putty, so any diy things I could do? Also, I attempted pre-shading using black sharpie, so let's see how it turn[...]
I FINALLY received the Tamiya 1/48th scale He 162 A-2 "Salamander" almost three weeks late. I am REALLY pleased with it, too. From the test fitting I've done, it will not have any issues whatsoever.
This interior was four pieces. It was two chairs, a stick, and a floor. Really, REALLY simplistic. And I was corrected from my last post, this is a monogram kit that is being made by Revell, or bought by Revell, or something like that. So I took[...]
I messed up on the 262 with its paint scheme and decals. I painted the green where the gray should have been on the fuselage, and grey where the two tone camo green should have been on the wings. And I destroyed one of the decals on accident. Ho[...]
Here is the first coat of paint for this night fighter! I forgot, like a doofus, to take pics of the interior before closing it up. So here it is with the first coat.
A surprise arrival, the Hobby Boss Me 262. I'm VERY happy with it so far. It came with a nose weight as well, which I wasnt expecting. Very detailed instructions and colored paint guide. Scribed panel lines and rivet detail. VERY nice decals. I [...]
This kit has so many things wrong with it. I'm not sure of the scale, of the plane type, but it was given to me (temporarily) to fix and clean by my ROTC Instructor Major Whited. I would like to pick your collective brains to clean, take apart, [...]
This plane was surprisingly fun to build. Origionally, I did not like the idea of the clipped wing. I thought it looked ugly. But, I bought this kit by Eduard and I really like the way it looks. I spent a little more time than normal on making s[...]
I have begun assembly of this magnificent bird. Gaps are to be filled with Tamiya putty, and then I will put on the wings, and then a final layer of dope, and then it's time to paint! There are various patch spots where my clumsy self accidental[...]
