Naval modeling - ships, boats and submarines.
Trumpeter 1/700 USS Baltimore (1944) This is the first ship model I've attempted in some time using all the details (photo-etch, rigging, sea base, etc.). Pretty satisfied with the results but definitely room for improvement. USS Baltimore in [...]
I am pretty new heater, and decided this would be a great place to upload my progress of my trumpeter USS Texas model. I’ve been working on it for about 3 1/2 weeks. And I’m a little under half way done.
My favourite model ship – SMS Elster, shown as on ca. 1901 – a small torpedo boat made using Schichau design for Austro-Hungarian Navy. It was my first full-resin multimedia kit built some time ago. I have updated it with some scratch-built de[...]
This is my first "proper" build nearly 10 years ago after longer break from modelling. I chose 1/400 scale V106 torpedo boat kit from the Polish Mirage Hobby range. In addition I used dedicated Mirage PE set 008-40028 plus some scratch. I wante[...]
I received this kit for Christmas and I managed to finish it on New Year's Eve. It was a really fun build and very straight forward. The parts required minimal cleanup which is nice since there are so many tiny pieces. The only thing I added [...]
I never took any photos during the building of these models, so what you see is it. All of my submarines were built o.o.b. and painted per the kit instructions and places on the kit's little mounting stand. It was a joy to build them after I sp[...]
We all have hear about John F. Kennedy's life via the net, including newspaper print. While walking around in the hobby shop one evening back in 2012, I came across this 1/72 scale PT-109 model made by Revell. I ask "AL" at the check-out count[...]
Jumetois Scale: 1:250 Scratch built
This is another model built o.o.b with a base, including some paper flags. On final assembly I noticed that one big sail had the wind coming into the sale at a different direction while the wind was coming into the other sail at an opposite dir[...]
This was another o.o.b. ship model which was easy to build. Like my Roman ship, I used the kit's plastic sails. All the sails on both ships looked realistic to me. I think I added some white paint to the sails, but I don't remember...hey..who ca[...]
