iModeler Ships

Naval modeling - ships, boats and submarines.

S.S. Venture at Scull island, Lindberg Q ship.

This is Round 2's reissue of the old Lindberg Q ship kit. I made it into a tramp steamer resembling the ship seen in the 1933 King Kong movie. It's about 1/400 ish scale. All I need is a King Kong figure.

Trumpeter “USS Texas BB-35” 1/350 scale

This model was a gift I received for Christmas, and I completed it yesterday. I’m sure someone more skilled than we could have completed it sooner, but I digress. All things aside, I think it turned out just fine. The bottle wasn’t necessarily h[...]

Vosper MTB Airfix 1/72

Another very old offering from Airfix ,but don't be misled by the vintage, this old girl has a high parts count and a lot of detail also the painting is a little complex due the deck being a different colour to the various boxes and fittings, so[...]

HNoMS St. Albans – Mirage Hobby 1/400

Finally got some time on the bench in 2020. Needed something small to get me going again, so I gave a go at the four-stack destroyer of Mirage Hobby. The build is OOB with the addition of some generic 1/350 railings. Hope you like it! Comments[...]

USS Colorado in drydock

I wanted achieve a highly weathered effect so I used large amounts of washes and weathering techniques. I wanted to make some parts look like they were covered with clothes so I made these clothes out of tin foil. The dock is scratchbuilt.

#IntrepidCorrected – Revell’s Classic 1/720 Essex Class Carrier (Corrected)

For many modelers of World War II ships, Revell's 1/720 scale model of the USS Intrepid (CV – 11) was an early favorite. It was cheap (two dollars, compared to four dollars for a Tamiya Akagi), easy to build, and gave you a big rectangular fligh[...]

So my extra parts and decals came today. Using 2 sets of photo etched steel figures, 2 sets of Nimitz class decals, a box of 6 Sea Knight helicopters, a box of 3 Sea Stallion helicopters, 2 types of micro sol decal setting solution and more Tami[...]

JMSDF Ise DDH-182 (1/350 Fujimi)

Well Finally, after more than 1 year, and 310 hours of work finished the Ship ISE, a model is good but it has many flaws in details, to which many improvements were added…Plastruct styrene sheet, Rod,strip…, Generic PE from Tetra models in raili[...]

Short and Long Range Radio Antennas in IJN I-400 Submarines

There are very few photos of these types of antennas, and most show different styles that are not on the same subs. Some are actual photos with one style and others are artists conceptions of others that may be. So, the big question are there [...]
