A little more progress on the office. Managed to get everything in place and painted. I used Master brass gun barrels to replace the molded kit ones on the guns and painted them with Alclad Gun Metal followed by Mig Gun Metal pigment.
I am rather glad that I could belly-land this stricken project.... Problems did not only arouse around the work with the Resin parts, more challenging was the Italeri-kit itself. Uff, done!
I have adapted the diameter of the cowl[...]
I really like the AM line of early P-51s and A-36s. Here's the most recent one I've built, released by Italeri. Straight OOB, even the decals, except for the yellow wing stripes, which I painted instead of using the decals.
I used Model Maste[...]
In early 1943 the British were determined to neutralise Tirpitz and remove the threat she posed to the Allied arctic convoys. Following the repeated, ineffectual bombing attacks and the failed Chariot attack in October 1942, the British turned t[...]
Hello fellow modelers,
This is the IJN Destroyer Asashio, my 5th attempt at 1/700 scale modelling.
My first three 1/700 builds were just straight out of the box build, then I discovered the wonderful world of aftermarket super detailed PE sets[...]
Well, my black kitties are keeping all well here in the City of Lost Angles, where 2 hours ago we had a 7.1 “aftershock” to a 6.4 earthquake yesterday that is now being called a “pre-shock.” (on the logarithmic Richter scale, tonight's was about[...]
The first Spitfire is immortal as “the plane that saved Britain” (even if Britain was really saved by the Hurricane) in the Battle of Britain. A delicate blend of aerodynamic excellence, the Spitfire I almost wasn’t there to do its part in savin[...]
The PAC JF-17 Thunder (Urdu: جے ایف-١٧ گرج), or CAC FC-1 Xiaolong (pinyin: Xiāo Lóng; literally: 'Fierce Dragon'), is a lightweight, single-engine, multi-role combat aircraft developed jointly by the Pakistan Aeronautical Complex (PAC)[...]
So I posted on the "other" modeling site and got some mixed answers. I have kinda switched horses in mid stream and plan (unless I don't......!) on making this VF-154 F-14A from my years in CAG 5 aboard USS Independence. The decal instructions[...]
The first T54s saw prototype production in the late 1945 but it was introduced to public in 1949. Until the end of production many machines were produced, nearly up to incredibly 100.000 unit were made! The greatest number in military history! I[...]
