EDUARD 1:72 F6F-3 Hellcat, VF-16, USS LEXINGTON CV-16, late 1943

This build brought back memories of my childhood on the '50s, early '60s building Monogram F6Fs. Though the surface detail is great, typical Eduard, i felt the need to replace many smaller detail parts with the following. Brassin resin P&W r[...]

S.B.S. Models 1:72 Macchi Mc72 “world Speed record”

i do apologize for no in progress pics, but in truth there was nothing of interest to report. i have to say these were some of the finest resin moldings i've ever worked with. the cowling and surface radiators are exquisite. Fit was excellent,[...]

My imodeler award for February, 2019

Thanks again to all that voted for my Tamiya Spitfire Mk.Ia. I am sincerely honored. Thank you to imodeler for the generous prize. I chose the new Eduard 1:48 Tempest Mk.V series 2, which i hope to start soon after my unexpected move to a new [...]

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. [...]
