New to scale modeling. Love WWII planes especially the Spitfire, Zero and P-51. Japanese aircraft are some of my favorites to make. Pretty much here to learn from all you great modelers.
1/48 Tamiya Spitfire Mk.I (Newer kit) built out of box. I had a lot of mess ups along they way on this one no where near perfect they never are for me. Not the kits fault. First time trying freehand camo I couldn't get a really tight [...]
Decided to build another Bandai Star Wars kit since I had so much fun on the last one I did. These go together really easily with no fuss which makes it a low stress build allowing me to focus most of my attention on painting and [...]
I been away from the hobby for a bit and got the itch to build something again... I usually do 1/48 WWII aircraft so this was a bit of a change for me. The assembly of the kit was amazing everything snapped together like legos no glue was [...]
1/48 Airfix Spitfire Mk.V painted with Tamiya and Mr. Color paints, weathered with oils and chalk pastels. I painted the markings and exhaust stains and no decals were used because I didn't have any lol. The markings for this plane are [...]

Just finished this up this morning and thought I'd take some pics and share. It's an old kit I had in the stache for some time. I noticed the plastic was warped and the decals were not usable so I decided to have some fun and do a custom [...]
I been trying to figure out ways to get better photos with out having to buy a camera or a light box. This time i used a roll of craft paper and my iPhone. I shot the photos in the backyard in indirect morning light. I just put the roll of [...]
This is my second completion for the Empire of Japan group build. This Tamiya kit isn't too bad for how old it is. Minimal part count makes it a quick build. It does lack detail but makes a good kit for practice. I built it OOB just adding [...]
This is the first model I made from an over 3 year hiatus of model making. I made it when the pandemic started when I was laid off. In turn that’s what started me to make models again.
This is a nice little kit. Everything pretty much [...]
