A and A Models 1/48 Me-209V4

Hello everyone. I built this unusual plane for the Luftwaffe Group Build. This plane was designed from the start to break the speed record, which it did in 1939. The Me-209 held this record until 1969. As the war progressed, the Luftwaffe t[...]

Kovozavody Prostejov 1/48 Marchetti SF260

It's been about 15 months since I quit smoking after 23 years of addiction. Consequently I found hard to spend hours sitting in one place assembling models, so I made a year long break from modeling. Whole this time this bird's been sitting in [...]

Heller’s 1/72 PZL P.11c

This is a nice model kit, Heller released this at 1977. It is a small model with fine raised lines and pretty nice fine details all over. I built up the cockpit area a little by adding a cage and small items on the side walls. The wing struts an[...]

Vintage Lindberg 1/72 F6F Hellcat (with just a few tweaks)

One thing about the Lindberg kits I have built is that the parts fit properly. All I did to this kit is open up the closed engine face and add a spare engine, some guns and an antenna. Everything else is out of the box. I did use the decals fr[...]

1/72 Scale Italeri RCAF CT-155 Hawk

My 1/72 scale model of the Royal Canadian Airforce (RCAF) CT-155 Hawk jet trainer was built using the Italeri BAE Hawk Series MK.100 kit. This kit has the necessary long nose and “new” wing compared to the older Hawk jets. A bit of modification[...]

First and last

Hey All, The First and Last build idea was an idea suggested by fellow iModeler Paul Barber. Hope to see more of the groups additions soon. The aircraft I chose for my FIRST and LAST builds are based on the so-called “career” of a WW2, USAAF, p[...]

Classic Revell 1/32 P-38J Rescue Kit

This kit was going into the dumpster and the hobby shop owner asked if I wanted it. It had been started with tube glue. The cockpit and nose guns were firmly glued in place. Yet I took this and another 1/32 kit home. Having never built one b[...]

Revell 1/48 F9F-5P

Whew, glad to finish this one off and it did turn out nice. There were a few glitches in assembly that slowed down the line-mainly a bad mis-alignment of the tip tanks at the ends. That took a lot of work to rein in and I had to be very carefu[...]
