iModeler Aviation

Building, painting and finishing aircraft models of all scales.

Yak-130 of Myanmar Air Force (Zvezda 1/48)

Modern aviation is a completely new thing to me. Mainly I'm interested in airplanes of 30th till 50th, because... well, I don't know why. Maybe because of a sound of big piston engines, maybe because I like some spinning stuff, like props. Or ma[...]

Hasegawa 1/48 Lend-Lease Supermarine Spitfire LF.IXe Soviet Airforce/PVO

Most probably the last new one by my dad for 2019. Started with an ICM kit but switched to a Hasegawa kit with decals from AML, superfabric seatbelts from Eduard, painted with Gunze H306 FS36270 for the underside and Tamiya XF-82 RAF Ocean Gray [...]

Monogram 1/48 P-47D The Turtle No. 10

I have always liked and still do like Monogram 1/48 scale kits, raised panel lines notwithstanding. They have the look, low parts count and build into a nice model. I first built this kit back in the late '80's when my son received it as part [...]

Well, another of my 'Wingnut Wings' kits leaves the 'stash' and sees the light of day... several still to come, and not to mention the backlog of WW2 Luftwaffe kits! This is supposed to be a D.Va, but the kit it comes from - the 'Richthofen'-sp[...]

iModeler goes to the movies, sort of… 1/48 Grumman F9F-5 Panther

This started off as my first choice for the Movie group build and was supposed to be the Brubaker Panther from "The Bridges at Toko Ri" until about several others announced intentions to do the same airplane. Not being a herd animal and despera[...]

Finished nice and early today. My Special Hobby RAAF CAC Boomerang. Typical limited run... sanding, filling, sanding, angle grinder, sanding. Probably wont do another Boomerang in this lifetime, ( It wont come back ) but I'm glad I have this on[...]
