Bucks County PA-based, modeler as a kid, got back into the hobby again 5 years ago. Can't stop.
Amazed by all the talent I see on IModeler.

First WW1 era model, MENG Whippet.

Have never done anything from this era. Solid kit, track was a complete PIA. But the outcome was worth it. First MENG kit, no fit issues at all. I’ll try another in the near future. Happy New Year modelers! 👍

M1A2 SEP Abrams Tusk II, Tamiya.

Great model as usual from Tamiya , hardest part was the bulletproof glass and folding those little MRE boxes 😝 I’ll tell you that was tough. Otherwise a great kit. Always wanted to do it. Used AK Interactive for the paint , best [...]

Tamiya MiG-15bis, 1:48

Found this kit at a yard sale intact and way cheap! older kit, but as all Tamiya's went together extremely well. Had to buy new decals, the kits decals were faded and cracked. Thanks 🙂

Airfix Handley Page Victor K.2/SR.2 1:72

Airfix Folland Gnat 1:48

My first Airfix kit, wil do more for sure! The base is from a Bandai kit. The Folland Gnat was a small, swept-wing British subsonic jet trainer and light fighter aircraft developed by Folland Aircraft for the Royal Air Force, and flown [...]

Republic P-47M Thunderbolt, Tamiya

Tamiya kit, Tamiya acrylics and AK interactive extreme metal. Did not weather this one, like it bright and shiny 🙂 great kit. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Republic_P-47_Thunderbolt

Russian Heavy Tank KV-1 Model 1941 Early Production , Tamiya

the new version of the KV1, nice kit. Decal says "for Stalin" so I have been told. Watched a few tutorials on how to do battle damage, seemed to turn out ok. https://www.rbth.com/history/331287-russian-monster-tank-nazis

RSO/03 with PAK 40 by ITALERI

In order to cope with the poor road conditions on the Eastern front, the Germans built tracked tractors to tow all types of vehicles and also serve to carry various loads from ammunition and food supplies. The official description of this [...]

Gloster Meteor Tamiya 1/48

Hi all, this is my first post. So many very talented modelers out there. Very impressive work. Love this site! The British had initially dubbed the aircraft the Gloster Thunderbolt, but the American Republic P-47 Thunderbolt was already in [...]
