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

Tamiya Tony

My last completed kit of 2021, here’s my 1/72 Tamiya Ki-61 Hien. This was another fantastic kit from Tamiya. I used the camo decals which worked pretty well. I do wish Tamiya provided an open canopy option since there’s pretty good [...]

Tamiya’s Churchill Crocodile

Added to my 1/48 scale armor collection is this Churchill Crocodile. Another awesome little kit from Tamiya. Painted with Tamiya acrylics and weathered with various AK washes, pencils and powders. The figure was painted with Abteilung 502 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
