My name is Ulrich, male, 51 yrs at the moment ( date; 18th of October 2018.)
Love "pit-dogs", WW2 fighterplanes and to build Japanese WW2 planes in 1:32 scale, sometimes in 1:48 scale.

Hasegawa 1:32 Kawanishi N1K2 Shiden “George”

Hello, It has been a while since my last post, almost one and a half year. I had a very rough time the last 1,5 years... in a nut-shell; burn-out, divorce, got sacked after 17 years... but I'm doing very fine right now. Well this is my [...]

Hasegawa 1:32 Grumman F6F Hellcat

My latest build. Started the build in October last year and then I got the "whooping-cough". Inflamation of my ears, lost my voice and making sounds like a Pit Bull on steroids... couldn't build because of the severe cough. Took [...]

Hasegawa 1:32 Nakajima Ki-43-III koh Hayabusa

Finished this one last week. Waited all week for the sun to shine so I could take some photographs. The kit is Hasegawa's 1:32 scale Ki-43-II Hayabusa that I converted into a Ki-43-III koh. Modified the airscoop with putty, scratchbuilt a [...]

Revegawa 1:32 Supermarine Spitfire Mk.1

My latest build... The Revell 1:32 scale Supermarine Spitfire Mk.1, in fact it's a "mongrel" Revell parts and Hasegawa parts in one box sold under the Revell brand. Let me tell you first that I do not like Spitfires, nor do I [...]

Hasegawa / Alleycat 1:32 , Kawasaki Ki-100 Goshikisen

Finished this one last week. The Hasegawa Ki-61 kit with the Alleycat Ki-100 resin fuselage. A first glance at the resin gave me the impression that I was in for an easy build. Nice panel lines, no bubbles, nice detail. The stuff looks the [...]

Revell, 1:32, Hawker Hurricane

Finished this one last week. It’s the re-re-re-box of the re-re-re-re-release of the old Revell Hurricane, which was first released in ’67. ( I have build one too in my younger years, late ‘80’s….) Considering it’s age it was a [...]

Fine Molds, 1/48, Mitsubishi J8M1 Shusui interceptor.

This little bugger was a birthday present from my brother. It's the second Fine Molds kit I've build and I must say it's not as good as Tamigawa stuff. Not a great fit of the parts, instructions leave much to be desired. Had to use my [...]

Zoukei Mura, 1:32 , Kyushu J7W1 Shinden

My latest build. Learned a lot of new words, mainly swearing en cursing, during this build because it was a bloody PITA! The engine doesn't fit properly in the frame, nor does the parts for the cowling and guns. Did a lot of sanding, [...]

Ode to a little black and white dog…….

This is my latest build. The old Revell, 1:32, Hawker Typhoon Mk.1b. Used the Techmod decals (the Revell ones were cr*p) and the vac-form Squadron bubbletop canopy. The aluminium Mark III rails and their SAP/HE 60 lbs rockets are [...]

Fine Molds 1:48, Yokusuka D4Y2 Judy “nightfighter”

I've build this kit a year ago. The kit was not an easy build... the instructions were in JAPANESE! Painted with Tamiya acrylics IJN Green, IJN Grey, Yellow with a touch of red for IFF and lines on prop. The brown colour of the prop is [...]
