iModeler Aviation

Building, painting and finishing aircraft models of all scales.

Look! Up in the air! Is it a bird? A plane? A flying pig? Trumpeter 1/72 Gannet

TC does indeed build in eensy-weensy scale, just not that often. This is the Trumpeter 1/72 Gannet with the A2Zee wingfold and bomb bay sets, with Xtradecals. Sadly, about a week after it was completed, one of the new kittens was exploring and[...]

As promised…No. 4 of my favorite Five…..1/32 Sparrowhawk…

What you've all been waiting for with baited breath. Fourth fave is the William's Brothers Curtiss F9C Sparrowhawk. I just like to go back and look at this colorful, clean unique machine. For a kit it's age and type it did not go together bad at[...]

1/32 F-100D Super Sabre – Trumpeter

Thud was one of the most effective aircraft of Turkish Air Force for 30 years . I built this model to the memory of Capt. Cengiz Topel who shot down in this aircraft and killed after bailed out over Cyprus in 8th August 1964. This model buil[...]

1/48 Mosquito Mk IV Nightfighter

This is my first, fully airbrushed plane where I airbrushed the interior and the exterior of the plane. The only thing I did not airbrush was the figures inside (which one fell down somehow :/ ). I made a few mistakes which are very clear but I [...]

1/48 P-51B Mustang

Continuing the iModeler Mustang theme I present my Tamiya P-51B, with a Verlinden cockpit and a set of Aeromaster decals added. This build is from the late 90s and was the first project where I used a double-action airbrush for painting and weat[...]

1/48 Hasegawa CF-104 Starfighter

This is not a recently finished one, but one of my favourite Starfighters with TuAF markings. Turkey is one of the very first countries to receive the F-104s within the MAP program in 1963. Later, in 70s and 80s TuAF continued to receive differe[...]

Col. Robert L. Scott Jr.’s F-84E (Hobby Boss 1/32 kit)

In 1951 Colonel Robert L. Scott Jr., author of "God is My Co-Pilot," commanded the 31st Fighter-Bomber Wing at Furstenfeldbruck in West Germany. It being winter with bad flying weather, he came up with an idea: how about an "exploratory missio[...]

1/72 Eduard Bf-110 C

A recently finished model (VERY recently, about 30 minutes ago or so...). This is the new Eduard 1/72 Bf-110 from the C/D-boxing. There are other decal options in the kit that are a lot more attractive than this one but I felt so sorry for it wi[...]

Two famous P-51Bs – Tamiya 1/48 kit

Don Gentile's "Shangri-La" and James O. Howard's "Ding Hao." Both pretty much OOB other than p-e seatbelts and Aeromaster decals. Both done some 12 years ago. Don Gentile was perhaps one of the most controversial aces of the war. 30 years ag[...]
