Building, painting and finishing aircraft models of all scales.
After seeing Grega X post on his beautiful Me 262 I thought I would put my effort up here also. I have to agree, this kit is awesome, I have built the Monogram and Dragon Me 262 in 48th scale and this one is better on all levels. I wanted to[...]
1/48 , and an interesting aircraft, and usual "interpretive" build, as one needs to get the parts to somehow hold hands long enough for the glue to set. Built several years ago, sans gloss coat, panel lines or weathering. Ignorance sure is a tim[...]
I’m gonna call this one done, before I fiddle with it some more and maybe cause a disaster. I was nearly ready to be completed last week, but then AMS set in and I decided I had to add most of the tiny little antennae that are festooned all ove[...]
Lifelike Decals used to create a famous-for-being-photographed Spitfire XVIe.
Victory Productions decals used to create Clive Caldwell's first Spitfire VIII.
Without a doubt, the Tamiya Spitfires are "definitive." Personally, I prefer the "Hasegawa style" of model production, since 95% of modelers aren't really all that interested in opening up their models. If the kit came with a "solid fuselage" [...]
So what do you do when you get two really cool sets of markings and only one model? Split the schemes!! Blue side is 1963, and the black side is 1961. I painted the tricolour lower wing, but all the other markings are from the kit decal set. [...]
Still probably the best kit of this bird in quarter scale, with Aires detail set. I did suffer a bit of "going into details too much" with this one, but i think the result is more than satisfying. There aren't any problems mating resin with pla[...]
This was my first venture into 1/144 and flying boats. I added all of the cross wire bracing and the four antennaes. Box decals are used and the white and blue striping is paint. Stand came with the kit. Great kit, and fairly easy to build.
This is the Hasegawa 1/32 P-40 (actually the "Kittyhawk III/P-40M" iteration) with the Greymatter Figures conversion for the Merlin engined P-40. Zotz decals. The model currently resides in the home of the real "Duchess of Durham."
