Eduard 1/48 Messerschmitt 109G-6 in Captured Markings

It's been a while, but my build output has been very slow of late. I had heard many good things about the Eduard 109 series, and had the Delta One "American G-6s" decal sheet in my collection for a while now, so it seemed like a [...]

Fine Molds 1/48 Ki-15 Babs

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 [...]

A Stuka in Winter

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 [...]

Fine Molds 1/48 Claude

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 [...]

RAAF Spitfire “Down in the Trees”

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 [...]

It's been quite a while since I posted anything on here, but I have attempted to do some modeling! 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 [...]

Corsair chasing a shadow… or a zero… or… in the clouds

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 Can’t Identify that [...]

Thank You iModeler!!

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 [...]

Fine Molds 1/48 Ki-10 "Perry"

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 [...]
