One of WNW's first kits. Comparing it with later ones you can see there's a definite learning curve, but don't worry, the kit is really worthwhile. I used the True Details conversion to make James McCudden's S.E.5a, with Pheon Decals [...]
Have I mentioned I looooooove WNW kits (thank you Sir Peter and Richard Alexander for letting me review them).
I don't know why, but I have always thought the R.E.8 looked neat since i ran across Wylam's drawings in Model Airplane News way [...]
One of the great Cybermodeler (Dragon) smart kits. An easy build that looks really great when completed - I only wish the instructions were as easy to follow as the kit is to build once the instructions have been puzzled out.
Laffey was [...]
This was my fist attempt at a major conversion to get a nice looking F4U-4 in 1/48. It was not an easy conversion as some of the CMK resin shrank but eventually, with a little work and some Ultracast flaps, it all came together. [...]
My first completed model in 30 years, it's not 100% accurate and I've yet to add the aerial but I'm happy with how it turned out.
Airfix 1:48 club Me109 kit with Eduard PE and after market decals, airbrushed with Humbrol enamels.
This is my first WWI model in 1:32 scale. The kit is superb, however I added some scratch built on the engine. Rigging was made of monofilament thread and scratch made turnbuckles.
Painted with Gunze acrylics and weathered with oils. The [...]
I took up the challenge of a few commission builds, for a chap who builds R/C. His mission brief was for reference kits in 1:48th of RNZAF a/c used in the PTO. Normally his preference was for moderate weathering. However, due to the [...]
When I was an 18 year old sailor, I stood on the ruined bridge of USS San Francisco there in the park in the city whose name she bore, thinking to myself what might I have done had I been there that terrible night off Guadalcanal. USS San [...]
So, what do you do when you haven't built a ship model since you were in Junior High School (back in the early Triassic)? Why, go out and get one of the most complicated kits ever, get all the photoetch possible, and dive right in! This [...]
One of the great Wingnut Wings kits, the first one to sell out (so where are all the other built-ups?)
As with all the other WNW kits, commit the revolutionary act of actually reading the very good instructions and following them, and you [...]
