My latest. Literally no putty, easy build, but kicked my own arse a few times by screwing it up. Splashed thinner on it after it was "done", and had to re-flat coat, among other exercises. Built OOB with the exception of seat belts and some igni[...]
First, this is for new friend, Gregor de Ste Croix, who lives and works near RAF Lcssiemouth North of Scotland who has, and does, see a lot of this stuff on display now and also, a model builder and provider for this site and wanted to see[...]
Craig, your not the only one with S.M.S. ( Senior Moment Syndrome ) I posted this on another site and didn't catch the faux pas until the comments started coming in.
The wing is suppose to say... "Miami"
I guess this is the only thing I have that may remotely count as a diorama. I built this for my dad about 20 years ago and gave it to him for Christmas. It actually has a glass cover. I used Monogram's F-4C Phantom II kit straight from the box [...]
The decals (and paint) were a bit on the tedious side, but not a large problem area, just a mild PITA. Other than that, the kit went together famously. I am, nonetheless, having a "senior moment", because I don't remember the manufacturer of th[...]
This one I've build a couple of years ago. Tamiya did a very great job on this one! It was a nice plane to build. Bought the Eduard mask for the canopy, blisters and tailgun parts but it was a PITA. They were thick and peeled of after applying [...]
I finally finished this beast! My first model in... (mental math taking place) about 8 years. I think there are a few more things that could be done to this, but I'm sticking a fork in this one! Enjoy! Feedback is welcome.
You can follow my ent[...]
Tamiya had released a bunch of Japanese WWII aircraft way back in the late 1970's early 1980's and, at the time, they were the cutting edge of modeling technology. Even today with all the advancements they are still pretty good and can be had f[...]
My kit from the February drawing arrived today and it is great. Believe it or not I can't remember the last time I built a 109, maybe as a kid? What a great week, finished my probationary period in my post-Navy job and got my white hard hat, a[...]
The Mustang did not gain it's immortal fame until this American airframe was married with the British Merlin engine. Providing long-range escort to B-17s and B-24s, the Mustang carried the air war to the heart of Germany. By war's end, P-51s h[...]
