While I mostly model WW II aircraft, I will make any model that strikes my fancy.

Apparently I have a thing for British tanks

The third and last of my summer builds is this 1/48 Tamiya Cromwell. Three British tanks in a row for me with a Churchill Crocodile in construction. I guess it’s a “thing” now. Anyway, it’s another great little armor kit from Tamiya added to my [...]

Matilda

The second of my summer armor builds, this is the Tamiya 1/48 kit. I think I’ve mentioned before how much I like these 1/48 Tamiya armor kits. This one is no exception. And, if like me, you don’t like doing bogie wheels, this is the tank model f[...]

The Old Chieftain

I’ve been on an armor kick this summer and this 1/35 Tamiya Chieftain was the first kit I completed of several started. I used Tamiya paints and AK weathering materials. It was a good out of the box build to start getting some of my armor buildi[...]

Why Paint That Bull’s Eye Right on Top of the Turret?

Maybe the French thought they would have air supremacy. Anyway, I finally finished up my 1/35 Somua S35 from Tamiya after having some bad luck with the camouflage on the turret. My original black outlines ran like mascara in the rain when I be[...]

Monogram Butcher Bird

An older boxing of this venerable kit. The decals were very brittle and gave me some problems. Otherwise, it turned out better than the last one I did around 1973!

Spitfirepalooza Continues

I just finished another Spitfire to add to my collection. This time it’s the Airfix 1/72 Mk. Vb in the colors of Don Gentile’s aircraft. I believe the molds for this are from the mid 70’s and while there is a lack of detail (as in no wheel bay d[...]

Demi ronde and Flat

I did these about 20 years ago. Painted in oils over acrylic are coat. The hussar trumpeter is a demi ronde figure in 54mm the medieval business scene is 28 mm. I don’t remember who the editors are.

Arma Hobby PZL P-11c

Here’s my 1/72 Arma Hobby PZL P-11c. This is a nice little kit, although I think the panel lines on the wings are overdone. The fuselage and interior are excellent. A nice interior with PE is provided in this “Expert” edition. You will need to l[...]

Final One for 2020

My 16th and final completed kit of 2020 is this conversion of an Eduard Spitfire Mk. I to a Mk. II. I used EagleCals decals, and an Ultracast Rotol prop and Coffman starter for this easy conversion. The markings are for Bill Dunn, the first Eag[...]

Airfix Skyhawk

My penultimate build for 2020 is the new tool Airfix A-4 Skyhawk. It’s not my best work but, it’s a decent 3 footer. The panel lines on top of the fuselage were very soft so I rescribed them. I tried shading panel lines with water colors which w[...]
