Avid model builder. I like building modern jets and helicopters, and real space subjects, but I’ve recently started building WWII aviation subjects. I live in Beaverton, Oregon. You can check out my modeling website: https://www.georgesmodels.com

More Do-335 Madness

Some progress on the 1/32 Zoukei-Mura Do-335. Encountered a few problems that arose from the brittle nature of the clear plastic. One of the wing fillets cracked and broke off in two places and had to be repaired. The landing gear is coming toge[...]

The 1/32 Zoukei-Mura Do-335 Rear Oil Cooler Assembly

Hello every one. I finished this part of the kit last night and I would almost consider another lit kit all by itself and it seems like every sub-assembly in this kit is a mini kit. I kinda went nuts weathering it, but most of it won't be seen s[...]

1/32 Zoukei-Mura Do-335

The never-ending saga of the Zoukei-Mura Do-335 continues. There are a lot of parts to this thing. The instructions for the engines alone are 13 pages long! The cockpit and engines are finally done and the level of detai is tremendous. There is [...]

The 1/32 Z-M Do-335 Forward Engine is Done

I finally got around to at least finishing off the forward engine of this beast. There are a ton of parts on these little gems. This is one of the best non-resin engines ou there. The block was painted using a variety Mission Models Paints that[...]

More work on the 1 32 Zoukei Mura…

More work on the 1/32 Zoukei-Mura Do-335. I haven't counted how many part make up the engines, but it's a lot. So far, I've probably assembled a little over half the total parts. There are tons of hoses, pipes, ignition stuff, exhausts and motor[...]

1/32 Zoukei-Mura Do-335

Here are a few shots of the engines. This is a great kit with lots of detail and perfect fit. I'm probably weathering and distressing these a bit more than they should be, but I think I'll finish this kit as a well-worn, well used "1946" version[...]

Last Details Added to my 1/32 Tamiya RNZAF Corsair

I finally received the stretchy line for the aerials in the mail yesterday and attached the completed assembly using copper and steel wire, Albion Ni-Ag tubing, and a little paint. Next, it will be placed on the shelf where it will remain quietl[...]

1/32 Tamiya RNZAF F4U-1A Corsair

I present to you my Corsair. I started this thing about two years ago and did built a little here and a little there. I guess I got a little sidetracked with other projects and I'm sure that never happens to any of you. Anyway, I painted it with[...]

1/48 Kitty Hawk F-35B

I was getting ready for a contest here in Portland so I didn't have a chance to get around to working on my Kitty Hawk F-35B. Here's a shot of some additional progress I made on the engine this weekend. The kit is a contradiction of really preci[...]

2018 IPMS Phoenix

Here are a few images I took of some of the models at this year's IPMS in Phoenix, Arizona. Who thought Phoenix in August was a good idea? There were, from what I understand, a little over 2,000 entries. There were some amazing examples of supe[...]
