Revell 1/72 Shackleton AEW.2

Probably, the best kit in the scale. Revell's new tool Shackleton is superior (but not by a large margin) to the Airfix kit. In all, it is not a difficult build and results with a big and impressive model.

Fujimi’s A5M4 in 1/72

I’ve had this one in the stash for awhile and it was an older kit when I got it. That meant the decals were not of much use as they yellowed considerably. So I masked everything on this one. I also used a trick from Tom Cleaver to get [...]

Special Hobby's 1/48 scale He115B-2/C

Hi, guys... this is my latest completed kit and another return to a kit I tried a few years back, and arguably, a better outcome this time. As anyone who has attempted this model will know, it's a difficult kit in places but certainly [...]

Lockheed C-130J-30 Hercules, 37Squadron, RAAF Richmond

This kit started life as an Italeri boxing of the AMT/Esci AC-130H. It is hard to believe I started it back in 2017 (well not that hard with my track record). The conversion involved: Plugging the 'AC' holes Lengthened the fuselage for [...]
