1/35 Amusing Hobbies Object 279

INTRODUCTION Object 279 Kontin was born out of the Soviet desire for a heavy tank that could indirectly withstand a nuclear blast and fight in a radioactive wasteland as well as cross terrain considered inaccessible for conventional armor and ac[...]

1/48 Hasegawa P-39D-1 Air A Cutie

From the limited Edition Air-A Cutie boxing. A fairly easy kit to build for the most part. Much easier to build than the Eduard P-400 but with less detail (I had built an Eduard P-400 Profipack kit over a decade ago), but if I had to choose I [...]

PTO Models

Here are some but not all of my PTO models. My main interest from WW2 was the PTO so I have built a number of them. 1/700 Academy USS Enterprise 1/48 Hasegawa Air-A-Cutie P-39D 1/72 Airfix B-25B Doolittle Raider Hari Kari-er 1/48 Tamiya (new[...]

1/35 Academy M163 SPAAG

The M113 APC was the principle armored personnel carrier of the US Army, NATO and various allied forces from the 1960s to the 1990s till it was replaced in that role by various infantry fighting vehicles such as the Bradley, FV432 and Marder. I[...]

Space 1999 1/24 Moon Buggy

Another relatively quick build. This one from last year. This is the MPC 1/24 Moon Buggy which is an extra from the 1/48 Space 1999 Nuclear Waste Diorama which I might build later when I get another display cabinet. Any way, this one comes in[...]

Modelsvit 1/48 P-51H/F-51H

The P-51H/F-51H was the last of the single seat ponies built by NAA. It was made in kit form for 1/48 scale in 1999-2000 by HiPM (best forgotten) and Classic Airframes (not the easiest build.) It wasn't till Dec 2019 when Modelsvit released t[...]

Hasegawa 1/72 MV-22 Osprey

My Osprey build was much like the actual Osprey development. It took much longer than planned and plagued with issues. This kit is not an easy one as it has a number of sub assemblies that need careful work like the props as well there is a lo[...]

INTRODUCTION The Mantell Incident began in the early afternoon of January 8, 1948 when the Kentucky Highway Patrol reported to the authorities at Godman Army Airfield at Fort Knox that they spotted a circular object about 200-300 feet in diamete[...]

1/72 Anigrand A2D SkyShark

The A2D Sky Shark was originally designed to be a turboprop powered contra rotating propeller equipped reply to the short range and low thrust of early jets based on a requirement for an attack plane able to fly off escort carriers. Originating[...]

1/32 Tamiya T-Rex

I made this one for a friend who is a big dinosaur guy. It took longer than I thought because I'm not a wildlife modeler and dealing with the headaches I had figuring out how to redo the surface detail such as scales and seams around the legs, [...]
