Some observations regarding the Tamiya P-38

First: it lives up to the hype. As someone who spent quite a bit of time around "Glacier Girl" when she was at Chino, Tamiya has definitely done their research. Not clear whether they did this off GG or the "White 33" restoration that Westpac Re[...]

Sometimes I feel like I am the last one to arrive at the dance. It always seems like when I get my hands on something new that many of you have not only seen it, but built it. So I was a little surprised when I came across this Bf-109 kit th[...]

I was excited to receive this kit two days ago from Lucky Hobby, since I have admired this airplane from my youth. I build in 1/48, and this has been on my “wish list” for a while. My father gave me a set of military aircraft identification card[...]

Tamiya Grumman F-14A Tomcat, 1/48th in Review

The iconic F-14 has been retired since 2006 from USN service. 13 years ago, doesn't feel that way. Iran still flies the few they have left. And here is the "new " Tamiya F-14A kit, and yet it has been out into our hot little hands since 2[...]
