Another Tamiya Spitfire Mk.IX

I’m not going to go into a ton of detail on this build since there are hundreds of WIP builds on this bird out there, but to say it’s many mini-kits in one, is an understatement. After some research I chose Johnnie Johnson’s version to replicat[...]

1:25 Revell 1965 Chevrolet Impala SS 396

I haven’t posted any builds for a while now, and I built this 1965 Impala last summer and am just now getting to posting it. I’m glad I did—because my wife gave me a cool, portable light booth for Christmas, so I figured I’d spend some time pl[...]

1:25 Revell 1965 Chevrolet Malibu SS 396 Z-16

It’s said that John DeLorean created the Muscle Car era with the 1964 Pontiac GTO (BTW- building one soon), but friends the 1965 Chevrolet Malibu SS 396 Z-16 kicked the muscle car era into full swing. Read on… Throughout the ’60s, Chevrolet’s[...]

1:25 Revell 1968 “Bullitt” Mustang – iModeler at the Movies Group Build

So anybody who is a car “guy” or cares at all about muscle cars understands when someone mentions the movie “Bullitt”. Many better movies have been made since—BUT NONE—will ever compare to that chase scene. Say what you will, but the facts rem[...]

1:32 Trumpeter P-47D “Wicked Wabbit” – Nose Art Group Build

This will be my final addition to the Nose Art Group build. Thanks again to Jaime Carreon @jetmex for heading up this GB and extending the deadline. I hadn’t planned on building my “Jug” as part of this build, but things just worked out with th[...]

Case VAI – 1:35 Thunder Model

I built this kit before Christmas and it was fun mainly because my dad owned this tractor. Not the VAI, but VAC (row-crop version). My Grandpa always said he would give it to me, but then sold it. He said. "I wasn't going up fast enough to enj[...]

First Love – 1967 Chevrolet Chevelle SS – 1:25 Revell

We all remember the first time love conquered all—right? Well among all the teenage crushes, the biggest crush I ever had (and still have) is the 1967 Chevelle Super Sport. The first time I saw one in person was the first day of school my soph[...]

F6F Hellcat – 1:32 Hasegawa

First, let me say this—I originally wanted to title this post, “To Hell with this F6!” But, thought our web site benefactors wouldn’t appreciate it. However, my fellow builders, this kit was anything but fun. Maybe its because I’ve been dist[...]

1:32 Hasegawa P-40E “Tiger 104” – Nose Art Group Build

First I want to thank Jaime Carreon for starting this group build. From the beginning I knew I wanted to be part of it, but didn't know what I should build. Than it became clear it had to be a Flying Tiger P-40 due to their defining Tiger Shark [...]

Lost Treasure – John Deere 4430, AMT/ERTL 1:25

I was doing some Spring cleaning and found this kit that I forgot I had. When I opened the box it brought back a flood of modeling memories from my youth. I began building models with a cousin who was a few years older than me and had Muscular[...]
