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 tracks are [...]

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 very det[...]

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 Czech sho[...]

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 only mol[...]

Gloster Gladiator – Norway, 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 rigging[...]

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 built we[...]

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 are f[...]

Avia B.534 Series 1 – Eduard Weekend 1:72

A kit that I recently finished for a review in SAMI, the 1:72 Avia B.534 Series 1, from the Eduard Weekend kit. A joy to build and absolutely recommended, even if it didn't come with any resin or PE goodies. Peter PS: I did need a bit longer t[...]

Airco DH.9 Spanish Civil War 1:72

As a modeller of aircraft from Spanish Civil War, I sometimes have a take some unusual steps in getting the model that I want. The plane on its nose was the inspiration for this one. For this Spanish Airco DH.9 I used a vacuform fuselage from C[...]
