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

Finally finished the 1/72 Amodel Mi-6 Beast

This was a 5 month long build. It gave me trouble from the start. Absolutely nothing fit.

1/72 Amodel Mi-6 Helo

Almost done with this horrible kit. This is a composite of several derlict examples I found on the internet. Mission Models Paints, AK metallics, Mig panel line washes, oils, and lots of swearing.

The new 1/32 Zoukei-Mura Hs-129

Finished this a couple of months ago. My build will be featured in the upcoming Concept Note for this kit. It's the usual superb Z-M quality with a tremendous amount of detail and precision fit. I painted it in an Eastern Front color scheme inst[...]

1/350 Pegasus Hobbies Moonlander has Landed

Okay, so I finally finished the 1/350 Pegasus Hobbies Moonlander. This kit really was a lot of fun to build. lighting it really made it stand out. I used teeny tiny , itsy bitsy little LEDs in side the crew compartmant at the top and slighly lar[...]

Moonlander finished

1/32 Tamiya Mosquito Cockpit is finished

Well, I have to say that I am very pleased with the way this thing is turning out. It's taken weeks to get this far primarily because I took some time off, and I've only been working on it an hour or two in the evenings intead of my usual 5 or 6[...]

1/32 Tamiya Mosquito Cockpit II

A little more progress on the office. Managed to get everything in place and painted. I used Master brass gun barrels to replace the molded kit ones on the guns and painted them with Alclad Gun Metal followed by Mig Gun Metal pigment.

1/32 Tamiya DeHaviland Mosquito

Progress on the 1/32 Tamiya Mosquito. The cockpit is about 80% complete. All that's left is the navigator's seat and seatbelts, and some touch-ups here and there. I used RAF Interior Green from Mission Models. Small details (buttons, etc.) are V[...]

1/32 Tamiya Mosquito

Progress has been slow on this and not because it's a difficult kit to build. We're fostering a 6 month old Teacup Yorkshire Terrier who has taken up a lot of time so modeling has temporarily taken a back seat. Anyway, Ihave done a little work o[...]
