Airfix 1/72 Hawker Typhoon Ib Starter Kit

Hi there, This one has been sitting in the pile for well over a year and as I was contemplating surgery for the Buccaneer I thought I could build this one for Innis to see if I was capable of cutting out some plastic without it looking too b[...]

P-38 Lightening

This is one of my first aircraft models. A couple weeks ago I was looking around on Imodler and decided that I wanted to build an aircraft. I chose the P-38 because it is my favorite WW2 plane. I originally thought I would have problems with the[...]

Willy Messerschmitt becomes supersonic: the Helwan Ha 300

Hasegawa 1/48 USAF F-86F

Hello! This is my post Korean F-86F from Hasegawa. Very nice kit, no issues at all. Since the decals were quite old and "yellowed", I got a new set from Aeromaster. Metallic paint were automotive types and the rest from Gunze acrylics. Hope [...]

LFG Roland D.II, Pegasus 1/72

I’ve liked the look of the Roland D.II ever since I first saw it in Kenneth Munson’s "Fighters, Attack, and Training Aircraft, 1914-19" back in the late 60s. It wasn’t a particularly successful fighter despite its good looks; while fast, it did[...]
