While I mostly model WW II aircraft, I will make any model that strikes my fancy.
As part of my continuing “Spitfirepalooza” here’s my attempt at the Revell 1/72 Spitfire Mk. IIa. This was a good little project. The only big fit issue I had was the common wing-to-fuselage step which took a couple puttying and sanding sessions[...]
Here’s my 1/72 KP Models Avia B.35. It’s a very basic kit with soft exterior detail and a canopy that makes the generic detail in the cockpit very difficult to see. Nevertheless, I enjoyed making this unusual addition to my collection. And, th[...]
This is a kit that one could literally work on for a lifetime. I considered it. Panels galore to be painted in a myriad of grays and metallics and washes and filters to create variegated versions of those. Ultimately, I needed to call the kit [...]
Here’s my version of the Airfix Gloster Meteor F. 8. Much has been written about this kit so I won’t bore you with more of the same. This makes kit number four for the year.
Model number three for the year. This one I started and finished in 2019! This is the Fujimi 1/72 Spitfire mk. XIVc. The cockpit is quite sparse. Fortunately the Eduard mk IX has a few extra parts in it so I used them to dress it up a bit. The[...]
Last year I started quite a few kits but for various reasons (none good really) I only finished one. So one of my goals for this year is to either finish last year’s previously started kits or “send them on their way.” Second on my list (the Wi[...]
My first completed kit for the year, I present a Special Hobby 1/72 CAC C-3/5 Wirraway. On the whole this was an enjoyable build. It was a pretty easy kit especially for a short run model. The only issue for me was that the exhausts didn’t fit[...]
When I feel like I’m getting bogged down with builds that are getting too complicated, I like to do a modern sub. It’s a black tube with a few parts attached. (Okay, sometimes there’s a red half or so.) That equals refreshment for me! I had got [...]
Back again! Here’s another of the kits I’ve been working on little by little over the last couple of months, the Hasegawa 1/72 P-40N. My version is a decent “three footer,” maybe four. While the kit has petite engraved panel lines, the cockpit i[...]
I finally finished a kit! Even though I visit iModeler nearly every day, I haven’t posted anything in quite a while having started a new job this school year that has kept me very busy. But, bit by bit, I kept at this one and present my Bandai 1[...]
