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

My Best of iModeler Prize

I want to thank iModeler again for the recognition, and the prize and just received. I just started working on the MiG-29 I won last year and this will be a really nice addition to my collection of U.S. and Russian jets. Can't wait to get starte[...]

1/48 Kinetic Su-33

Well, after 5 months of working on this thing, I finally finished it. This is really a great kit.. The instructions are terrible, but it was still a pleasure to build. I used Mr Paint paints for everything except for the engine covers and nozzle[...]

Abandoned Su-15 (1/48 Trumpeter Su-15 Flagon-A)

I started this model a while back and posted a few work-in-progress articles about the build. The only after-markey I used was a photo-etch seat belt from another model. You can't really see it through the stained, cracked, and weathered canopy.[...]

MiG-29UB of the Azerbaijan Air Force

Here's my rendition of the a plane that appears to have been sold by the Ukrainian AF to the Azerbaijan AF (as far as I can tell). It's been stripped of its paint so it looks to be pretty weathered. I used an old Academy MiG-29UB kit that I boug[...]

Mig-23 Part Deux. How to beat a dead horse

Not trying to be repetitive here, but I shot some better photos of my 1/48 Trumpeter Mig-23.

1/48 Trumpeter Mig-23

So I have to say that I think I finished the 1/48 Trumpeter Mig-23. I'm pretty happy with it. I touched up a few things, added a little Mig European soil weathering pigment and attached the missiles. This was a fun kit to build (although a bit f[...]

1/35 Czech Air Force Mi-24 Attack Helicopter

I finally finished this thing after four months of working on it almost every night. I used several after-market sets including PE by Eduard and a resin interior kit by Verlinden. In the end, I only used parts of each set. The interior ended up [...]

Workshop

Here are a few photos of my work area. It's not as neat at the moment as these pictures would have you believe.

November “Best of Show” winner

I want to thank iModeler for such a great prize for winning the November "Best of Show" competition. I really appreciate it very much and am looking forward to building a great rendition of it and posting it on iModeler.com. I've read many good [...]

747 and Enterprise Orbiter 1979 ALT version

This is one of those models that I always wanted to build. I found the 1/100th scale Tamiya Orbiter model at a hobby shop in Florida. I ran into the 747 a couple of months later and picked it up right away. I can't remember who makes it, and it [...]
