This is "Ruthie", done from the same Bombshell Decals sheet Steve Towle did "Solid Jackson" from - I sent around the decals I got for review and six of us did models from the decals for a "group review" at Modeling Madness.
The B-25s based on [...]
I got this kit at a club auction, in a plastic baggie, with instructions, but sans decals.
I built it out of nostalgia for old kits, built when I was younger, but with an adult 'eye'. I replaced the missing decals with a borrowed 1/48 kit decal [...]
Trumpeter 1/350 USS Massachusetts (BB-59). First US battleship to fire its guns in anger at another battleship since the Spanish American War (versus French "Jean Bart" during the North African invasion). Tom's Modelworks photoetch used for ra[...]
This is just a fun little kit and with all the 109's showing up I thought I might put up this one. I usually build a little more weathered, but I still like this one. I built Galland's plane, adding the telescopic site through the windshield. [...]
This is the model that got me back into the hobby after a decade long absence, 1/48 Monogram A-10 with a few tweaks. While being fairly well immobilized by a foot injury, I found two Monogram A-10s in my closet. I gave one to my 10 year old so[...]
Since everybody likes 109s, here's the long-awaited Hasegawa Bf-109F-4, done as Marseille's "Gelbe 14" with Lifelike Decals. Paints are Xtracrylix, "sun faded." Model done last year when it was first released.
The "Friedrich" was the best com[...]
The Eduard Bf-109E-1 modified to Bf-109B-2 with the Alley-Cat conversion set. Very easy.
There's been no end of confusion over the camouflage the first Bf-109B's were in when sent to Spain. I agree with Lynn Ritger's research, that they were [...]
Maybe it's my age, well, I was born in 1952 after all, but I really like the jets from the '50s. To me, they just look like a jet fighter is supposed to. It seems that to aircraft designers back then, there was no limit to their imagination. S[...]
This model is one of my favorite Monogram kits. Their B-25 has a typical Monogram fit of being a little loose in the fit dept and is not up to days standards of CAD designed engineered models. However, with some modeling skill,filler and strips[...]
What I love about these new tooled Airfix kits are the simplicity and directness of the design of models. This one was built OOB. The decals work reasonably well given the price paid for the kit and are way better than some more of the up scal[...]
