1/48 scale ICM 48232 Junkers Ju-88 A-5 kit review – Part 1 of 2

Well finally... Here it is. I have been trying to get this article done for a while. There have been a few "technical difficulties", but we managed to get past that with help from some friends. More on that later... This review will have [...]

1/48 scale Airfix A05128 Boulton Paul Defiant kit review

Way back in October 2016, I was picked for the "random model of the month" award here on Imodeler. My Hobby Boss 1/48 scale F4F-3 "early", (which was painted in a Yellow Wings paint scheme), was chosen. This is the kit I received from Martin a[...]

1/48 scale ICM #48244, Dornier Do-17Z-2 kit review… we have another winner!

A little while ago I posted an article on the new 1/48 scale ICM He-111. In that article I mentioned doing another review on the Do-17. This will give me an opportunity to try out the new format that Martin and his staff have been working so di[...]

1/48 ICM 48261 Heinkel He-111 H-3 Kit Review… and it’s a beauty!

Once I realized this 1/48 scale Heinkel 111 was out and available for purchase, I had to get my hands on a kit. After a phone call I had one on the way, thanks in part to the misses and her credit card. We will call it a late Christmas present f[...]

Thunder Model Scammell Pioneer Tank Transporter – Build Review, Part 3

As usually, I started by gluing all the multi-part assemblies to speed up the process of seam filling and not have to wait for filler to dry later on. There are quite some seams to deal with, but as fit is very good all filling could be done [...]

Christmas came a little earlier this year (review on Modelcollect’s new tool 1:72 B-2 Spirit)

Hi Mates, I could not miss this commonplace title but this "little" kit just arrived from the manufacturer. I made a pre order (in 2016) practically when they just formed as a future manufacturer and annunced their plan to make a new-tool B-2. T[...]

Airfix 1/48 North American P-51D Mustang – Kit Review

This is a review of the new (2017) Airfix model kit of the ever popular P-51D Mustang in 1/48 scale. Box number is A05131. I suspect we don´t need to waste any time and space on the P-51 history so we go straight to the review. The kit is moul[...]

Craft Tool Rack

After seeing the DSPIAE Craft Tool Rack on the Internet a few weeks ago I thought I would treat myself, so I ordered one from Breveco Modelling. It arrived very well packaged in a nice strong box. On opening, I found a bag of biscuits. Nice tou[...]

Thunder Model 1/35 Scammell Pioneer Tank Transporter – Build Review, Part 2

As usual, there are a couple of subassemblies which need to be built up and painted before proceeding any further – in our case this will be the engine, the cab interior, the winch, and the trailer mount. Engine assembly is straight forward w[...]
