1/350 USS Carl Vinson CVN-70

Here is my project of the USS Carl Vinson. This represents how she was at the start of her maiden deployment on March 1, 1983. This deployment was a World Cruise starting in Norfolk Virginia and ending in San Francisco California. I served aboa[...]

Life-Like 24 Pounder Naval Cannon 1:24

Before you read any further, I have to admit that this tale of woe really has very little to do with the Life-Like Naval Cannon. It has more to do with proverbs like: "Measure twice, cut once.", "Look before you leap.", "No plan survives the [...]

Halfway there, and living on a prayer. Building update on Trumpeters 1/350 “USS TEXAS”

It’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve put the first dab of glue on this kit, and it was shortly after that but I knew this was not going to be easy. This is by far the most complicated model I’ve put together. But I believe That taking the time[...]

IModeler at the Movies – “Das Boot”.

This is the 1/72 Revell German Type VIIc kit finished as U-96, the inspiration for the movie. I built it pretty much out of the box with the exception of the swordfish decal which came from a German producer named Peddinghaus. They offer an ex[...]

USS Texas

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.

K.u.K Torpedoboot SMS Elster – 1/350 WMM

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[...]

Torpedoboot V105 – 1/400 Mirage Hobby

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[...]

Trumpeter 1/350 HMCS Huron, 1944

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 [...]
