Airfix 1/48 Spitfire PR. XIX

Hello iModeler! This is my recently finished Airfix Spitfire PR. XIX. Although the interferon detail was not as crisp as the newly tooled Airfix Mk. V Spitfire, it was still a fun kit and went together rather nicely. Build was OOB, paint was [...]

Hasegawa F-14D Tomcat, Vandy 1, 1/48 scale

Hello iModeler! Long time no post. Here is my first commissioned build. My client requested it be in flight with a full load of ordnance. That made mounting kind of tricky but I found a way in the end. I bent a clear acrylic rod to a suit[...]

Airfix 1/48 Spitfire Mk. Vb

Hello iModeler! Here is my Airfix Spitfire Mk. Vb dressed up as a bird from the Malta campaign. This is my 2nd Airfix Mk. V. I wanted a do-over from the first one I did since I was not happy with how the finish turned out. I am a bit more OK[...]

Revell 1/48 F/A-18F Super Hornet

Hello iModeler! Here is my Revell F/A-18F Super Hornet. Good from afar but far from good... but learned more from this build than I did from my recent Tamiya builds. Exhaust cans are resin Wolfpack cans, decals are CAM Pro VFA-41 and ordnance[...]

Tamiya 1/48 F4U-1A Corsair

Hello iModeler! Here is my Tamiya Corsair, built out of the box except for some True Details resin wheels. I used EZ line for the antenna wires. Paints are Vallejo Model Air acrylics shot freehand through my Sotar 20/20. It's kind of hard to [...]

Tamiya 1/48 scale Fairey Swordfish Mk. II

Hello iModeler! This kit was a gift from my lovely wife, and It was a total joy to build! I used a Quickboost resin exhaust pipe and EZ line for the rigging. Paints are Vallejo Model Air shot through my Sotar 20/20. The rest is scratch or ou[...]

Tamiya F-14A Tomcat in IRIAF colors

Hello iModeler! Here is my Tamiya F-14A Tomcat in Iranian colors. This kit was a pleasure to put together. Paints by Akan from Linden Hill. I used true Detail resin seats, but only because I just happened to have them on hand. Cheers! -Ramon
