Started building models again after a 25 year break. Enjoy warbirds, armor and muscle cars.

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[...]

M3A1 Half-Track – Dragon 1:35

I think pretty much anyone who builds armor wants to build a Half-track at some point and I’m no exception. This is the first Dragon kit I’ve built since getting back into the modeling game and found it pretty darn nice. I built the 3-in-1 kit, [...]

1942 Harley-Davidson WLA by Italeri

As the United States prepared for the likelihood of war in 1940, Harley-Davidson was tasked with building a general-purpose motorcycle for the US Army. Based upon their existing W-series bikes, the resulting bike used a high-compression twin-cy[...]

Another Tamiya 1:32 Corsair

Just so you all know I’m not sandbagging a shelf full of models to post on the site. I really just discovered iModeler in the last week so I’m playing catch up and really enjoy hearing all your feedback. My bride gave me an airbrush for my bir[...]

1:32 Zoukei-Mura P-51D Mustang

This was my first build after a 25 year break from models so I figured start with the Cadillac of war birds. I picked the Zoukei-Mura over the Tamiya kit based purely on price. And I must say, this is a really nice kit. If you want to build a sk[...]
