Kitty Hawk F2H-2 Banshee

This is the Kitty Hawk F2H-2 done almost OOB, using kit decals. I added Furball canopy decals, along with a scratched metal pitot. Reading the reviews of this KH kit is not very much fun, because they highlight a lot of problems that this kit ha[...]

F7U-3M Cutlass, 1/48th

This is the old Kitech (Hobbycraft) F7U-3M Cutlass in 1/48th scale. I'm sure a lot of you recognise this kit as being pretty crude, devoid of much detail, and just about everything else that modellers these days desire in a model. That's true e[...]

T-34C Turbo Mentor

This is the 1/48th scale Beechcraft T-34C Turbo Mentor by Czech Model, done in kit markings. This kit originally came out in 2002, but it has taken me this long to finish it; I have had the major part of the assembly done for quite awhile, but o[...]

Kitty Hawk F-101C Voodoo

I've had this Kitty Hawk kit since it came out a couple years ago, but it kept getting put on the back burner due to other projects cutting in line. Well, I finally decided to finish the Voodoo, especially since Kitty Hawk has decided to release[...]

Trumpeter A3D-2 Sky Warrior

I picked this kit up when it first came out a few years ago...and I finally got around to building it. I was between kits and I thought this Trumpeter kit would be a fast and easy build... I was so wrong! First of all, this is a large aircraft,[...]

Hobby Boss F-84G Thunderjet 1/32nd scale

Hi everyone: I managed to finish another kit, this time in 32nd scale (I usually do 1/48th). This is Hobby Boss' F-84G which, except for Eduard seatbelts, and some wire brakelines, is OOB. The decals are kit decals; I know, these markings are do[...]

Atlantis (ex-Aurora) “Classic Plastic” TWA DC-9, 72nd scale

This is one that I just completed; it's the Atlantis Models DC-9-15 (or thereabouts). This kit appears to be a re-issue of an ancient kit, which I believe was originally Aurora. In any event, the kit is very basic, and consists of parts with ver[...]

HobbyBoss FJ-4B Fury

I built this kit awhile ago, but haven't displayed it much, so here goes. This is the old HobbyBoss kit in 1/48th scale. It is done OOB, using parts and decals that come with the kit. I think this kit is fairly basic, but it makes up into a pret[...]

My iModeler Best in Show prize arrived…I’m so happy!!!

I want to thank Martin and the rest of the judging team for picking my Hobby Boss Ka-29 "Helix-B" as the February award winner; I am still surprised that my model won. Martin provided me with a list of kits to choose from, from which I picked th[...]

Kitty Hawk F9F-8P Photo Cougar

Here's my take on the Kitty Hawk F9F-8P Cougar (1/48th). I originally was going to do the VF-61 fighter version, however, I messed-up by adding the intake spltter plate, before I realized that this version did not have the splitter. I found the [...]
