To my mind, the Hawker Hunter is aesthetically one of the best-looking jets ever designed. In that opinion, I am not alone, as many have responded favorably to the flowing lines of Britain's first successful swept-wing fighter. With the first pr[...]
While struggling with completion of Airfix' Gloster Meteor F.8 the included Derwent is a model in itself. It's not bigger than 20 mm x 35 mm but certainly will be an eye catcher on the side. Finnished in Vallejo colours throughout and a bit of o[...]
I love biplanes and even more, I love painting figures, so I have been collecting all the RFC figures I can find and slapping on the paint so they can liven up my biplane models. This pair now sit with my Wingnut Wings RE8 in Australian markings[...]
This was started at the same time as the Typhoon and has continued a bit longer being worked on whilst doing my Buccaneer.
Three kits in one really. The Trolley and the Arado were little gems that were a joy to build but the Salamander[...]
To write something new about the Incom T-65 X-Wing would probably mean carrying Dactillions to Galactic City, because one thing can be said for sure: the X-Wing has not only proven to be one of the most successful space fighter concepts ever con[...]
When Tamiya came out with their excellent Corsair, I had to jump at the chance to build one. Of coarse this led to another and another, and so on. You know how that is !
Plenty has been said about the kit, over the last few years so I'll skip th[...]
This is the first model I made from an over 3 year hiatus of model making. I made it when the pandemic started when I was laid off. In turn that’s what started me to make models again.
This is a nice little kit. Everything pretty much snapped[...]
I haven't posted in a bit as I continue on with my Trumpeter A-1H build. I decided I wanted a pilot in the cockpit, but my choices in 1/32 were pretty much.....nadda. The ZM pilot is hard to find, and not all that great. Aerobonus does howeve[...]
The thought process behind this build was simple. This is what the subject title entails. An old soon-to-be retired anti-gravity fuel/maintenance anti-gravity barge that service large spaceships that enters within an atmosphere.
First of all, I must say that the Italeri, UH-60/MH-60 BLACK HAWK 'night raid' 1/48 scale kit, sucked big time. Maybe it was my bad luck but the fittings has one of the worst fittings I have ever experienced. Not only that, but the instructions [...]
