Airfix Douglas C-47 Skytrain

This is the new mold Airfix C-47A in 1/72 scale. It is a fine kit in all respects, it builds up quickly and with no surprises. The interior is perfectly adequate, very little can be seen in any case and I would advise against adding additional[...]

Airfix B-17G Anxious Angel

This is the Airfix B-17G, which represents a late production Fortress with the Cheyenne tail turret and staggered waist gun positions. This is a nice kit right out of the box, I added a few aftermarket bits but you would still get a nice build [...]

AER Moldova Russian Trucks

Two builds of the AER Moldova Russian truck kits in 1/72 scale, one is a PARM-1 aircraft field workshop and the second is a similar kit converted to an anti-aircraft vehicle using the Zvezda 37mm 61-K gun. The kits are a little dated by today's[...]

Ostmodels Soviet SMK Heavy Tank

This is the Soviet SMK Heavy Tank prototype built from the Ostmodels 1/72 scale resin kit. It is an unconventional design which actually saw combat. The utility of carrying multiple turrets on the same chassis is somewhat limited, but it was a[...]

Ostmodels Char 2C Super-Heavy Tank

This is the French Char 2C Super-Heavy Tank, available as a resin kit in 1/72 scale from Ostmodels. The main hull is cast as one large piece which is a very good thing. The model builds up quickly and is a good representation of the original. [...]

Academy B-17E in the Hawaiian Air Depot Scheme in 1/72 Scale

Here is another Flying Fortress in the Hawaiian Air Depot camouflage, this time serial 41-2437. This is one of two HAD scheme Fortresses seen in John Ford's documentary film of the Battle of Midway. The U. S. national markings were modified by[...]

Academy B-17C/D in the Hawaiian Air Depot Scheme in 1/72 Scale

In the aftermath of the Pearl Harbor attack much of the American airpower in the Pacific lay wrecked, caught on the ground by the Japanese assault. Planes lined up in neat rows alongside airfields proved easy targets for bombers and strafing fi[...]

AMT / Ertl Northrop X/YB-35 in 1/72 Scale

This is the AMT / Ertl X/YB-35, a very large kit when built, but a unique subject. This kit takes some work, think of it as a limited run effort and you will be well prepared. I opened up the wing leading edge inlets and the wing slots at the [...]
