50 years old and just entering back into the modelling world. My models are mostly OOB, with only slight detailing..ALL paint is either through a spray can or by brush.
Edit…i’ve now invested in a compressor and airbrush, so now i’ts a steep learning curve, mistakes WILL be made! lol
Just built these 2 for my son who wants to build a "D-Day" themed diorama (meaning i'll end up attempting it)
Straight from the box, few parts (but some very tiny). The only thing i wish i had changed is on the Jeep. That is the supports for the[...]
A nice little build made up of 76 parts.
Supposed to be a s
"snap-fit", but some/most parts were fixed with Tamiya Extra Thin cement.
I used a rattle can for this with the red being a shade i liked, and not necessarily the correct colour.
SO, while i'm out of action with a busted right shoulder rotator cuff, (yes, i'm right handed) i thought i'd post this model that my 15 year old son originally started, and butchered, of the iconic Toyota Supra.
He originally hand painted this i[...]
Started on a model for myself for a change, the Revell Lancaster Mk1/111.
Spent ages on the interior then offered up the two halves and what can you see?...NOTHING.
I will also attend to the nasty seam lines (which i've never been able to avoid [...]
Hot on the heels of my last Chieftain being handed back to it's owner (1 week to be precise), i have been asked to build ANOTHER!
Learning from mistakes made on the last one, here we go again!
Also, first time using a Matt Black Primer through a[...]
Found this little kit i started about 10 years ago, will have to get it finished. BUT, i've since moved house and lost a few parts!!!
Any how, i'll add some straps, brackets etc. and try to find some replacement parts.
Pictures a little grainy b[...]
Building this for a friend, so it's going to be OOB.
Slight weathering will be applied and, as i'm new to airbrushing, the finish could be "interesting" to say the least.
Until this is finished, the "Memphis Belle" has been put on hold.
Took my [...]
Thought i'd try my hand at a larger scale aircraft for a change.
So, went BIG....1:48th Scale B17 "Memphis Belle".
Kit was reasonably cheap (and i found out why) so i decided that this would be a baptism of fire and bought an AIRBRUSH & COMP[...]
Having already built this kit for myself (i'll post a photo at the end of this build), my friend asked me to build one for her husband who served on her. She asked for a "no frills, just out of the box" model as her husband has failing eye-sight[...]
Built this over the last three ! days for a break from the Yamato...
Usually build boats, but got about 6 Armour kits to build for a friend.
OOB, heavy weathering. (the Land-Rover is a Tamiya SAS "Pink-Panther", painted as standard in Olive Drab[...]
