45 - 1/72 Italeri MB 339A P.A.N.

My next build was one for the 100 Years of Aeronautica Militare (the Italian Air Force) and I decided to do one of the Frecce Tricolore ponies. It is an old mould I really wish somoene would bring the MB339 out in an updated moulding, but [...]

44 - 1/24 Tamiya Nissan R89C

So I started this build with what seems to be a prophecy, I said this in my build log: “Hi All, here is my entry for the Le Mans group build, the Nissan R89C, not the greatest car, a bit of a dud actually but looks like an interesting [...]

43 - 1/48 Italeri Bell AB-212 / UH-1N

I enjoyed this kit so so much, what a beautiful helicopter. As always it needed a few upgrades but those are what makes it individual and interesting. I decided to do the Italian ISAF version that was used in Afghanistan. I started out in [...]

42 - 1/48 HobbyBoss US M4A3 (76)W Tank

This was my first tank build and I really enjoyed it - a nice scale to start with and a very nice kit with a lot of fun building and detail. I added some stowage to make it look in service and created my own tarp using tissues and watered [...]

41 - 1/12 Tamiya Honda VFR750R

This is a really nice kit, the only down side is the very thick decals that have a tendency to crack over the curves of the bike. I decided to do one side clear as that was an option in the kit - so the beautiful engine could be displayed [...]

40 - 1/48 Italeri F16 Fighting Falcon

This build started out as the grey Italian Scheme until a friend donated the 100 hours Decals to me, so it had to become that. It was a challenge to do the black paint in a way that made it look interesting because it still had to be clean [...]

39 - 1/72 Heller Alouette IIIIn a Rhodesian K-Car scheme

My dad was part of the Rhodesian bush war and loved the Alo III. the K-car was a gunship conversion fitted with a 20mm MG151 cannon. Inside was the pilot and gunner in the armoured seats and the Fire force commander who sat on a home made [...]

38 - Italeri 1/35 ABM 41/42

Well when I saw this awesome desert vehicle with that daunting camoflage I just had to attempt it - My 1st 1/35 scale vehicle and man was I impressed with Italeri. What a great kit. Started with assembly on the drive train and the body [...]

37 - 1/63 AMT X-Wing Fighter

Ah sci fi - I love it - the ability to go wild and it doesn't matter what you do. I opened this box up - a special edition one to find aweful gold plated sprues, that was definitely not going to cut it. So into a bleach bath it went - [...]

36 - Sunny 1/24 Suzuki GT750

So after 2 big airplane builds I decided to do something small, quick and fun, small and fun it was but definitely not quick haha, in my usual fashion I had to make all the imperfections disappear and on this kit there were lots and at a [...]
