WNW Hansa-Brandenburg W.29

One of the great Wingnut Wings kits, the first one to sell out (so where are all the other built-ups???) As with all the other WNW kits, commit the revolutionary act of actually reading the very good instructions and following them, and you can[...]

Blackburn Roc

Built a few months ago (reviewed in detail at Modeling Madness), using the A2Zee conversion set for the Special Hobby kit (which had been sitting around since 2007 till I got this set which increased the interest level). The big deal was to dri[...]

F2G Super Corsair Racer Kit Bash

This was one of my first forays into AMS and kit bashing. I started with a Special Hobbies 1/48 F2G Racer, and added the wings from an Academy 1/48 F4U-1A, because I wanted the flaps down, and I wasn't about to chop up a Tamiya kit. I do reali[...]

Tamiya 1/48 P-51D “Little Freddie”

Hello all, First off, an introduction. I'm currently a senior in high school and I have been modeling for a year and a half. In that time I have ruined a few models but have also pumped out quite a few good ones as well. The pictures I have pos[...]

1/48 AMT Tigercat F7F-3N

Hi again- sorry for the multiple posts tonight- I only have now to do these. I took the AMT F7F, converted it using the HiTech resin parts, Obscureco props (the kit ones are, well.. backwards), and Squadron canopies, and finally metal Cutting Ed[...]

Accurate Miniatures 1/48 IL-2 Shturmovik

I saw a profile of this aircraft- yeah I know- you should use photos not someone's idea of a photo, but I couldn't resist- it was the only image I could find of a cannon toting IL-2! I used Scale Aircraft Modelling's article on Shturmoviks a whi[...]

Hobbycraft 1/48 Ju-88- with a LOT of changes

Hi all, I got the Hobbycraft 1/48 Ju-88 unaware of all its issues! I had the support of a lot of online modelling contacts to help me fix this sow's ear! Spare props from a Dragon Ju-88, metal gear legs from Airwaves I can't remember? Wheels fro[...]

48th Scale Monogram F-18

This was an early Monogram kit and featured the fuselage split horizontally. I sanded off all the panel lines and drew them back in with pencil. I wanted to see if I could use the low-vis scheme and still make an interesting scheme. I saw a pict[...]

48th Scale War Weary Tigercat

Yes it did look that bad and I have the photo I used for reference. I started out looking for a different way to do a black scheme and found this shot in Squadron's book on the Tigercat. I added a resin nose, drilling it out to accept buckshot i[...]
