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

1960s Retro-futuristic Moonbase

I found a really cool lunchbox on ebay a few months ago and decided to take it a little further by making a little moonbase diorama inside of it. I had one of these as a kid and was really happy to have found it. The Landers, Rovers, Space Stati[...]

Maschinen Krieger 1/20 Lun 168 Camel

Finished the 1/20 Hasegawa Camel Lun 168. This was painted using Mission Models Paints. Lots of painting (over 40 colors involved), chipping, scrubbing, and listening to 70s music went into this bad boy. I'll be putting out a downloadable How-to[...]

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[...]

Moonlander finished

Finished the 1/350 Pegasus Hobbies Moonlander last night. This was a really fun project outside of what I usually build. I used Mission Models paints throughout and added a few LEDs to give it some drama. I also used the excellent Paragrafix PE [...]

1/350 Pegasus Models (von Braun) Moonlander

Here's my almost completed moonlander. This is a really excellent kit manufactured by Pegasus Models. The fit is really good and the molding ares superb. It's a little tricky to build and I ended up tossing out the kit's vertical support rods an[...]

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.
