When this kit was announced I was very pleased - not only is it a subject I have been wanting in 1/48 scale, but it was being made by one of my favorite manufacturers! Fine Molds has a small catalog, and they are definitely a niche [...]
After finishing my last diorama depicting a jungle scene, I decided to go for something from the other side of the globe. So here is my little snow scene with a Stuka, and a crewman pondering whether he will be flying today...
The Stuka [...]
Just finished this one as a pretty quick build. Great kit - I really enjoy building FM stuff. Just wish they would make more kits 🙂
I build the FM Ki-10 "Perry" some time back, and this kit was just as enjoyable of a [...]
After a bit of a hiatus from posting, here is my latest.
I tried to depict a scene somewhere in the SW Pacific, late in the War, with Aussie Spitfires constantly on patrol conducting low-level strafing and bombing sorties. Here a Spit has [...]
Much earlier, I posted my first armor build - a Tamiya 1/48 Flakpanzer. I am an aircraft guy, but after building that kit, I became interested in doing a few more from the series. Here is my 2nd armor build - a Tamiya 1/48 Sherman [...]

this is Tamiya's 1/72 Mosquito. I modified the landing gear to the raised position (closed the doors, blended them in and rescribed the [...]
Mid 1943 – a lone Corsair pilot has chased an unidentified aircraft into a cloud, and is now frantically searching for it. It is a fellow Naval Aviator? Is it an enemy aircraft? Or maybe just his own shadow?

I was the very lucky recipient of the random selection award for February... and now I have a brand new Airfix 1/48 Spit Mark V in my possession. I'm hoping to do it in a Malta scheme at some point, and am very much looking forward to [...]
This is another older build of mine - an absolute pleasure of a kit to build. If you are looking for a beginner's biplane, give this one a try. Moldings are crisp, and fit is superb. I used a little Mr Surfacer to fill in a few of the [...]
Did this one a while ago - pretty much OOB, with Eduard seatbelts, and some added antenna wires and brake lines. Decals are from EagleStrike. Paints are Gunze Aqueous and Tamiya. Like any of the newer Tamiya kits, it was a pleasure to [...]
