Humber Scout Car Mk. II

Another braille scale armour model: the Humber Scout Car Mk. II from Dan Taylor Modelworks. Details and fit are great, the instructions however are a bit vague regarding part placement. The markings are from 59th (Newfoundland) Heavy [...]

T17E2 Staghound

With the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Europe in mind, I started working on the RPM T17E2 Staghound in 1:72. The say this kit is over-engineered is rather an understatement, especially the multi-part turret is quite a handful. I [...]

Churchil Mk.IV A.V.R.E.

Please find attached some images of my recently finished Dragon 1:72 Churchill Mk.IV AVRE tank. A great little kit with superb fit and even the flexible DS track behaved as they should. After spraying the tank British dark green overall, [...]

KV-2 PST 1:72

Here's my recently finished PST 1:72 KV-2 Dreadnought tank. On this model I replaced the injection moulded handles with brass wire, I drilled the front hatch open and scratch build a new one, and added an antenna from steel wire. The [...]

M3A3 French Army

My first armour post on I-Modeller; the 1:72 M3A3 Stuart from S-Model, using Braille-Scale decals for a vehicle from the French army that landed in Southern France in August 1944. The S-Model kit is actually a quick-build kit, albeit a [...]

Kittyhawk Mk.III (Long Fuselage P-40K)

Another review kit that I build for Scale Aviation Modeller International (SAMI), that should appear in one of the upcoming issues of the magazine. In short: great kit with four very interesting decal options, light years away from the [...]

Corsair F4U-1D USS Cape Gloucester

Here are some images of my 1:72 Tamiya F4U-1D Corsair, as it flew from the USS Cape Gloucester off Okinawa in 1945. The kit, actually my first Tamiya ever, is a joy to build with great fit and all. However, it is too bad the flaps are [...]

Gloster GladiatorNorway, April 1940

This is the old but very nice Heller kit of the Gloster Gladiator, with the markings of the Norwegian Air Force as they tried to defend their country against the German invasion in April 1940. I build this kit years ago, but didn't add [...]

Vultee V1A American Airlines

This is the 1:72 Special Hobby Vultee V1A. I previously built this as a Spanish Civil War bomber, but wanted to depict it in its civilian guise as well. Other than its SCW stable mate this one was much more difficult to track down. The [...]

P-51C Tuskegee 1:72

I want to share some images of my 1:72 Academy P-51C in the colours of Tuskegee Airmen. The model was build pretty much straight from the box, I only added an Eduard Zoom set to the cockpit and cut out and dropped the flaps. The decals [...]
