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 1/32 Zoukei-Mura Ho-229: The End is Near.

Here's another installment in the Ho-229 saga. Got the wings done tonight! That was a big accomplishment. Little fiddly parts that had to be attached. Actually, I thought I was done. It just occurred to me that I haven't put in the nav lights, y[...]

More Z-M insanity.

So this Zoukei-Mura Ho 229 is taking on a life of its own. It's been consuming me, I can't stop thinking about it and It's driving me insane. Much more to go.

1/32 Zoukei-Mura Ho 229

Glacially slow progress on this beast. I wasn't sure how to portray the "beavertail" section so I made it a metal/wood combo because the molding is a bit ambiguous and I really couldn't fined any references. I attached the bottom "wood" panels. [...]

1/32 Zoukei-Mura Ho 229

Normally, I would add this article to the Work-in-Progress section, but this this thing is coming along so nicely that I thought it would be appreciated more here. This has been-other than the addition of HGW seatbelts and wood panel decals- a c[...]

Zoukei-Mura Ho 229 WIP

I started this a few weeks ago and have made some steady progress. This is the really wonderful 1/32 version. The level of detail in the kit is like nothing I've ever seen before. The wing is almost finished in the shot. I just finished it momen[...]

1/48 Hasegawa QF-4 Aerial Target Conversion

Finally finished this thing. It was a kit that I bought about 20 years ago when I was getting back into model building. After market includes Eduard seats and exhaust, as well as a couple of parts from an ancient resin cockpit set. The front can[...]

1/48 AMK MiG-31

Finally finished it

1/144 KC-135 refueling a B-2 Spirit Bomber

I uploaded a few WIP pics of this little diorama a few months ago and after languishing on the shelf for a few months, I decided to finish the build. I don't normally build anything smaller than 1/72, but these two at 1/144 were the perfect size[...]

Additions to my Workshop

I uploaded a few pictures of my workshop a couple of years ago and have made a few additions to it since then. I've added an air conditioning unit, a Paasche paint booth, LED Lighting, and an Espresso machine.

1/48 Hobby Boss Ka-27 Ukrainian Navy

Just finished this bad boy after 5 months of working on it off and on. It's pretty much OOB except for the seats, a couple of scratch built antennas, pitot tubes, wiring/plumbing, and excellent Bergemont decals. I used a custom mix of Mr Paint S[...]
