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

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

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.

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[...]

1/32 Eduard Engines for TAmiya Mosquito

Started on the Eduard resin engines a few weeks ago. I can't believe the number of parts involved. There are literally hundreds. Anyway, I'm building this thing half battle worn and half bare wood to show how it was built and what it looked like[...]

New pics of my 1/32 Zoukei-Mura Do-335

Just shot these new photos of my Do-335. I wasn't very happy with the first series I shot. I also made some slight mods to the finished model. I wasn't happy with the positioning of the landing gear and performed a little surgery on that area to[...]
