13 - Academy 1/48 AH-61D Longbow Apache

This kit was a real love/hate situation. I love the Apache and really wanted to extend myself and try new things and put a lot of effort into finishing it off well. The hate part comes around in the bad fit and engineering of this [...]

12 - Matchbox 1/72 Aermacchi G.91Y

The first of I hope a lot of Italian military subjects. The G.91 is a really beautiful plane and if it weren't for politics would have been widely utilised throughout Europe and even USA. When looking through references I found 1 photo of [...]

11 - Academy 1/48 Hughes 500dIsreali Scheme

A nice quick and quite simple build that I put some extra effort into - I wanted to do an Israeli scheme but didn't have the decals to so I made a mask of the Yellow V with tape and got a friend to cut a mask of the Israeli roundels for [...]

10 - AMT - Anakin's Podracer

What an incredibly fun kit to build, from the subject to the fit and finish I had a ton of fun. The details are great and the figure was amazing to paint, a few gaps here and there on the pod but nothing that was too tough to fix up. The [...]

9 – Testors OV-10A Bronco

I found one of my favourite airplanes and in 48th scale there aren't many options on it. A really fun kit but very little detail so had to create my own, mostly in the cockpit, I added ejector levers, wiring, fuselage ribbing, some boxes, [...]

8 - Condor Focke Wulf FW-189

This was built for my first every group build. The theme was Winter Wonderland (had to be a military build), and when I saw this camo on here I really wanted to try it. The idea, have this FW-189 bursting out of a storm cloud. The build [...]

7 - Polar Lights Batcycle

A really nice kit that let me get some experience with figure painting. My conclusion - Tamiya Acrylics suck with figures. I need to invest in some specific figure paints in the future especially since I'll like to try do some more [...]

6 – Revell AH-1S Tow-Cobra & AH-1T Sea Cobra Group build with my son

I managed to get similar Cobra Helicopters and wanted to do a build together with my son so we could work on similar kits while he learnt. What an awesome experience, he did so well and we both learnt a lot. He did the Sea cobra in the [...]

5 – Grumman F8F-1 Bearcat 1/72 from Sword

I went into this build just wanting to use this kit as a practice but fell in love with this plane, it was designed to be a massive upgrade to the flying forces in WW2 but got there 2 weeks to late. Because of the lack of it's service I [...]

4 - Lancia Stratos HF

I really loved this kit, it was a nightmare and gave me so many issues (my fault, not the kits) but oh my was it a lot of fun. I started out with the undercarriage and engine and played around with some extras on the engine seeing as it [...]
