Back to the beginning…..

Sometime around 1971 when I would have been around 6 years old I was given as a present the Airfix 1/72 Boulton Paul Defiant kit, I can actualy remember building, it probably in about an hour and when it was built not knowing what the decals wer[...]

Trumpeter Sukhoi su-25 / czech

I'm a very sloooow modeller, so it took me a year (exactly) to complete this big bird. I really enjoy 32 scale models, but where the heck does one place them when they are done??? Anyways, the model was a joy to build. I've added an Aires cockpi[...]

F-105 Thunderchief

This 48th scale Monogram kit has been sittin' around collectin' dust for a while now, but I gave her a quick bath to get the top layer off and took a few pics on the bench with a homemade tarmac (sorta). This version represents one of the earli[...]

Hasegawa 1:32 Scale, Curtiss P-40N “Warhawk”

I can't speak for all of us on here, but there is just something about the Curtiss P-40 that just make it one of my favorite aircraft. Does not matter which type, or which scheme, it just is what it is, a tough, hard nosed fighter plane. This[...]

Tamiya/Italeri/Academy Spitfire XIVc in 1/48th scale

Since I belong to the NTAA Club (never throw anything away), I decided to kitbash a Spitfire XIVc a couple of years ago. There are bits of around 5 or 6 different kits in this model which amazingly all fitted pretty well. The nose is a cut down [...]

1/48 Hasegawa Bf-109F-4B

Howdy, I built this almost out of the box a few years ago. I added etched seatbelts, decals from MSAP for a Me-109F4-B of Frank Liesendahl of JG 2. The ETC 500 bomb rack and bomb are from a Hobbycraft Me-109E kit. Weathering was kept to a mini[...]

Hello my name is Jeff Stewart and I am a PLASTIHOLIC! This was my first model, well since i was a tot. Was watchin the Military channel all day about 3 yrs ago, that same day I was walkin around one of those closeout stores near my home and ca[...]

It will never fly…….. Koppos Favorite # 2….

I always have been interested in the North African campaigns, WW2. The vehicles involved just hit me, and the way they get covered in their environment makes fun modeling. A tank I've always wanted in kit form came out last year. As weird as it[...]

And now a floaty thing…

... My first effort at 1/35 ships, the Trumpeter Z-25 Zerstorer (hmmm... Bf 110s... a floaty destroyer... seems to be a theme developing) ;). Anyway, here it is. Used the excellent Master brass gun barrels, chiseled off the molded anchor chai[...]

iModeler Review: Airfix 1/48 Spitfire P.R. XIX

Martin asked me a couple weeks ago if I would do the first "formal" (i.e., commissioned") review for iModeler, of the new Airfix 1/48 Spitfire P.R. XIX. Saying "yes" was easy and within a week the box showed up here at l'Chateau du Chat. There[...]
