Tamiya new tool 1:48 Spitfire Mk.Ia

one of the best kits i've ever built, of my all time favorite aircraft. Ingenious engineering, flawless fit and detail throughout. I've modeled it as X4330, QJ*G, 0f no.616 Squadron (South Yorkshire), September 1940, thought to have been flow[...]

FineMolds 1/72 A6m5b model 52 ZEKE (Nakajima built)

My last completed build for 2018. FineMold's example of the late war Zeke. I'll have to get around to building one of Tamiya's 1:72 A6Ms to do a fair assessment of FineMold's offering. Fit was very good, detail very fine, but lacking in some mi[...]

Airfix 1:72 B-25C/D as a USMC PBJ-1D

this is the new Airfix B-25C/D. the early Mitchell in 1:72 scale has been one of my "holy grail" kits for a long time. Airfix finally answered my prayers earlier this year with this release. fit and detail parts are excellent. I think Airfix ca[...]

WNW Albatros DVa Jasta 76b, Karl Hopf, 1918

Started back in 2010 and finally off the shelf and finished. Cockpit detailed with different gauge wire, etc. added detail to the Mercedes engine include scratch built spark plugs, valve springs, spark plug wires, and assorted cables. fuselage [...]

Eduard 1:72 Fw190A-8 , building the “imperfect Beast”

a cantankerous build at best, but still a nice model which i'll build again in other versions as they are released. one online review called this kit as close as perfect as we modelers can expect, so i'll call this article "building the imperfec[...]

Airfix 1:48 Spitfire Mk.Ia

Airfix kits just seems to get better and better. one of their latest is this Spitfire Mk.Ia in 1:48 scale. Detail, shape, and fit are first rate, they just seem to get better and better with each release. i chose a Battle of Britain Mk.I, in [...]

AirFix 1:72 “Stringbag”

i have no particular affinity for the Swordfish, though i now think she's a pretty little thing in her own humble way. i started this build over a year ago as a rigging challenge. i've said it before, i do like what Airfix is producing lately. [...]

Attack Squadron 1:72 F8F-1 Bearcat

This is Attack Squadrons resin -1 Bearcat. Though the fuselage is in three segments, fit is good. very nicely detailed cockpit, engine, and engine/wheel bay. a multi-media kit with a photo etched fret and a vacuformed canopy. i have an issue w[...]

“Gods of Tin” Eduard 1:72 MiG-15

here is my MiG done. extras include Eduard Brassin resin cockpit Eduard P.E. exterior set stainless steel tubing for the 23mm cannon and pitot tube Uschi 'superfine' rigging thread for the aerial wire CMK nav. lights (though i think they are a b[...]

AirFix 1:72 Bf109 e-4

AirFix's new tool kits are getting better and better, though they still need a little work to get them up to current standards. panel lines are not too deep and fit is excellent. i am no judge on shape issues. i've built the ICM e-3 109 and the[...]
