38 years old, from Belgium. Little modeling time – occupational physician, but I do like to build 1/72 scale aircraft, especially WW1 with some rigging. 1/144 jet fighters and WW2 birds are also a popular weekend build. I also like ships: the old Airfix and Revell ones: see my models!

Lots of modeling fun!

1/144 weekend modeling

Hello all, I'd like to share with you some thoughts about modeling. I think most of us are aware of the restrictions placed upon us concerning modeling. With restrictions I mean modeling space, financial things, family things, CATS, modeling ti[...]

Revell whaler Charles W. Morgan 1/110

Hello all, I'd like to present my Revell Charles W. Morgan. I read a lot about this model on the dedicated modeling sites before starting. Wrong sailplan, wrong colours... I just started building and painting according to my vision of a nice bo[...]

Some coloring advise for the real thing!

Hello all, I need some advise from all you color-experts at Imodeler. I have a lot of modelships and model flying things but I also have a real boat. It's called 'Lotus' after the Lotus flower and the reason I chose that name isn't really clear[...]

Revell 1/350 Amerigo Vespucci

Hello, I found this model in a garage sale and immediately went back to my memories as a child in the '80: Sail Amsterdam, Sail Rotterdam, Sail Antwerp... The Amerigo always was a sight to be seen. I also visited the ship a couple of times duri[...]
