1/32 Hasegawa/Alley Cat Ki.100-1b

In March 1945, B-29 crews began reporting the appearance of a previously-unknown type of Japanese Army fighter appearing in squadron strength at altitude over Japan. The new radial-engined fighter had superb maneuverability and high altitude p[...]

1/48 dragon junkers ju-88a4

An old project from the past. This is 1/48 Dragon Junkers Ju-88 A4 with the markings of Stab II /KG 77 in Sicily-Gerbini airfield during 1942. Though it has usual 70/71 camouflage ,it is filled also with RLM 76 and 79 stains on the upper and s[...]

Tamiya 1/35 – M-51 Sherman

A period of me-time between contracts afforded the opportunity to make Tamiya's new 1/35 M-51 Sherman. I've been wanting to build a HVSS Sherman for ages and this kit is an absolute ripper - easy to build with fantastic detail straight out of th[...]

1/48 Revell (Pro-Modeler) SB2C-3 Helldiver

Another "book project creates a model project" from TCWorld. I am currently writing what is becoming a book that looks like it will be "definitive" - "Fabled Fifteen: Air Group 15 in the Pacific War." Just this week I got handed material no o[...]

1/48 Tamiya F4F Wildcat

Built straight out of the box after being rescued at a yard sale. The model had been painted with a dark blue rattle can and most of the detail had been badly obscured. Luckily the paint stripped off easily with oven cleaner. I only added a s[...]

1/48 Promodeler Ju 87R-2

Nicely detailed kit with some basic photoetch from Eduard. The hardest part was masking the canopy framing! The decals are from Aeromaster just for something different than those that were supplied in the box. This was one of my first attempt[...]

1/48 Promodeler Me 410

This is a fairly decent kit with beautiful cockpit detail, the only issue is the multi-part canopy which I damaged in the build, luckily I secured a spare from Revell parts replacement. Meng Models has just released a new boxing of this of this[...]

Roden 1/48 SE5a, (Mick Mannock)

This is another old build. It's the Roden SE, the Part PE set was not available when I started the kit, so I scratched some detail, and used the limited old set for the Aurora/Monogram kit. The one up to date PE section was the Eduard prepainted[...]

1/48 Dragon Ta 154

The decals on this kit "exploded" as soon as they hit the water, those that didn't promptly fell apart on contact with the model. With very few after market options available I scrounge around the spares box for replacements but in the end I ha[...]

1/48 Revell BF-109 G10

This very old kit with not very many parts and despite showing it's age it still builds beautifully. I added a True Details resin cockpit, wheels, and canopy. I scratch built some additional details into the canopy area and cockpit, and added [...]
