Thunder Model 1/35 Case VAI Tractor with loader

Following the excellent review of Thunder Models' new tractor ((link)) previously posted by iM member Boris Rakic, I couldn't wait to get my hands on their second release in the form of the tractor equipped with military loader. And once [...]

iModeler Review: Eduard 1/48 Spitfire Mk IXc late version

The new 1/48th scale Eduard Spitfire Mk IX has been out for a few weeks by now and a number of reviews and quick builds have already surfaced around the web. The consensus seem to be that this is a great kit in all respects, with correct [...]

1/72 Hawk 81

This the Airfix Hawk 81-A-2 that I built straight from the box, with the only modification being to carefully separate the canopy from the windshield. Fitting the canopy over the spine was more than a little difficult so a vacform canopy [...]

1/48 DAK Kübelwagen

This is the excellent Tamiya kit detailed with some Hauler PE and fitted out with stowage from Black Dog. The BD set was something of a mixed bag with some fit problems and mold shifts etc, but overall it turned out ok. I plan to use this [...]

1/72 Fw-190 D-9

This Dora is finished as an aircraft belonging to JG26 during 1944-45. The model is the Tamiya offering built straight from the box with a set of Eduard seatbelts added. All markings were painted on with Eduard masks, using an Aeromaster [...]

1/72 F-14A Tomcat

This is the Fujimi kit with Verlinden seats. The kit missile pylons did not fit very well and were exchanged for a set of pylons from the Hasegawa Tomcat. Also, Superscale decals were used to give this Tomcat the markings of VF-142 [...]

1/48 P-51B Mustang

Continuing the iModeler Mustang theme I present my Tamiya P-51B, with a Verlinden cockpit and a set of Aeromaster decals added. This build is from the late 90s and was the first project where I used a double-action airbrush for painting [...]

1/48 Bf 109E-4

My contribution to 'Attack of the 109' here on iModeler comes in the form of Tamiya's classic kit. Not much to say about this build, it's almost out of the box with just a set of Eduard seatbelts and Aeromaster decals added. As I really [...]

1/35 M1025 Humvee

I had no plan to build a Humvee of any sort until Tamiya announced their M1025. Just one of those cases where I had the urge to build something just because it was a Tamiya kit and I knew it was going to make for a fun and straight forward [...]

1/48 P-47D Thunderbolt

This is the wonderful Tamiya kit built out of the box with only a set of Eduard pre-painted seatbelts added along with an aftermarket decal sheet used to mark this one as 'My Gal Sal' from 378th FS/362nd FG based in England during [...]
