Wing modeller, father of 4 and a Luftwaffe enthusiast…all my hobbies in no particular order

EoJ entry: The Plane that came from a Sub- Aichi Seiran

This was my joy for the last 8 weeks or so, building a kit that although not the cutting edge of today Tamyia still bears the hallmark of this brand- an easy and straightforward build. SonI took most of that time detailing, either with some scr[...]

No grey allowed- JG.54 bf 109 G-1

After completing Tamiya’s 109 G-6 some time ago I was exhausted about building more Messerschmitts, but amidst a P-51 build I had an urge to grab again a one O nine, but this time I chose a more colorful scheme, one from the eastern front JG.54.[...]

Teeth & Fang GB Wrap-up

After 8 months running, this Group Build, dedicated to all fiercely looking jaws that embellished weapons from the dawn of mankind up to the present day, comes to an end over the last day of February. Some 38 iModelers joined the group but only[...]

Eduard Fw 190 A-8: An Arctic Wurger

My last build of 2019 is the excellent 190A-8 in 1/48 scale from Eduard, released sometime this year. I had been waiting for this kit ever since the first A-4 version was launched, for so far (and probably for a long time) no other late version [...]

Teeth & Fang GB still going

As most of you are aware the Teeth & Fang Group Build has been going on since June 1st and schedule to end at New Years Eve. We’ve got so far 7 active builds, 2 of them already finished, but many more people joined with some exciting ideas f[...]

Diamond shape Focke-Wulf 190 A-4

My last build is this weekend box of Eduard Fw190 A-4. Not that I (we) don’t have a fair share of this plane lately but I just couldn’t resist this unique camouflage pattern. In fact there were some 109 E that sported this kind of “netting” camo[...]

Dragon Ju 88 G-6: The Berlin Effect

By chance, or should I say, by Google app I managed to retrieve some long lost photos of the Junkers 88 nightfighter I did back in early 2013 or so. This kit had a resin nose from Quickboost in order to replicate one of the few “Berlin” radar do[...]

New P-38 from Tamiya

Read their Facebook page earlier today, and to me it sure looks like their “new 1/48 aircraft” is the P-38 everyone was hoping for. Here’s the link to the page that has some revealing photos
