Finnish Lagg-3 by LTD Models

Greetings iModeler compadres. My latest project is a captured Soviet Lagg-3. The model kit is by the limited run LTD Models, who were a subsidiary of the old mail order-retail powerhouse Squadron Shop. The model was made in the Czech [...]

Bf-109D, Dora in WW2 camo scheme

My latest, Messerschmitt Bf-109D by Hobbycraft is presented for review. This kit from 1992 remains passable and makes very presentable Jumo-powered pre-war fighter. If you only do one of these kits, I would recommend it be a Spanish [...]

P-47D Razorback, by Monogram

P-47D Razorback, 325th FG (Checkertails), Revell-Monogram, 1/48 scale Greetings iModeler compadres. I present my Monogram-Revell P-47D Razorback, of the 325th FG (Checkertails) for your perusal, and hopefully enjoyment. This particular [...]

Tamiya A6M5c Zero 52c

Presented for iModeler colleagues and friends, the Tamiya A6M5c Zero from 1983. Though the model is old, it is still quite good, in my opinion. After doing my N1K1 Shiden, I had an urge to do its contemporary, the late-war version of [...]

Kawanishi N1K1-J Shiden by Otaki

The Kawanishi N1K1/2 was numerically, the second most important fighter of the Imperial Japanese Navy, behind only the Mitsubishi A6M. 1435 were produced, representing just under 10% of all IJN fighters. For Japan as a whole, only the [...]

Macchi MC 202 from Hasegawa

My version of the Hasegawa Macchi MC 202 presented for iModeler colleagues. This kit is just 'aces'! It builds so amazingly well. It is painted in Model Master enamels. The MC 202 Folgore mated the famed (and feared) DB 601A1, [...]

Heller F4U-7 in 1/48

Presented for review: Aéronavale F4U-7 F.14.9, USN Bureau No 133690, by Heller, in 1/48. As noted in many French F4U articles, the black and yellow ID stripes were for 'Operation Musketeer', aka the Suez Crisis of 1956. Heller did [...]

Hurricane IIB, 151 Wing, Vaenga, USSR Sep-Oct 1941

I wanted to do a Hurricane IIB with a tropical filter and temperate camo scheme. The options for that combo were Hurricanes IIs in Singapore, Burma, Java, India, Ceylon, and Russia (ironically none of those locations are actually [...]

AMTECH P-40L-5, Long tail

Amtech P-40L-5 of the 79th Fighter Group in Mediterranean Theater markings ca late 1943, most likely in Sicily. I like the USAAF aircraft in the RAF-style camo (Dark Earth, Midstone, Azure), and British fin flash obscuring the serial [...]

Hawk 81C, No 77, AVG 3rd Pursuit Squadron, Rangoon, Burma

I finally got around to completing a Hawk 81 (P-40C) of the Flying Tigers, because everybody needs one in their collection. This model is from the Hobbycraft HC 1451 "AVG" Tiger Shark kit which has accuracy issues with the [...]
