Wingnut Wings Albatros D.V

This is my first WNW and large scale WW1 build and am very pleased with how easily it all went together. Although the detail that comes in the box is outstanding, I used the following aftermarket products: Pheon Albatros lozenge decals, Gaspatc[...]

Progress on The USS Wilkes DD 441

Continuing on my conversion of the Dragon 1/350th Livermore kit into the USS Wilkes as she probably (note I said probably!) looked during Operation Husky the invasion of Sicily. Modifications mostly consist of re working the rear gun tubs to he[...]

Moson Model Show 2013 in pictures, part 1

Here are some pictures from the Moson Model Show in Mosonmagyarovar, Hungary, which is being held this weekend. The Moson Show has estabilshed a firm reputation as the second largest international model event in Europe, after Scale Modelworld in[...]

Yay! My “Major Award” arrived today….

My prize package from the March contest has come in. And a beauty it is. 4 Tamiya 1/48 models is a good thing, but these are even packaged pretty as a boxed set. I opened it very carefully to peruse the contents, now I have the urge to go Luftwa[...]

1/35 DML Sd.Kfz. 184 Schwerer Jagdpanzer “Elefant”

Here is another model I built a few years ago. This was DML's "Premium" kit - I don't even remember why it was called that. The zimmerit was applied and sculpted from two-part epoxy putty (Tamiya), using a homemade tool I fashioned out of scrap[...]

1/48 Eduard Focke-Wulf FW-190A-8

Here's one that i built a few years ago, when the Eduard kit was released. I remember there being some online angst regarding the thickness of chord around the vertical tail empanage. I found it to be pretty much accurate based on my own researc[...]

Slingsby T.18 Hengist

Hello My father, Raul Hrubisko has made two new models in 1/72 scale for our collection. In this case as part of our Glider series. He made them from scratch in only 16 days.. I would like to thank to Jed and Alastair for helping us with[...]

Bronco 1/35th scale Fieseler Fi 103 RE-3 Piloted Flying Bomb

This is the Bronco1/35th scale Fieseler Fi 103 RE-3 (Reichenberg) Piloted Flying Bomb Trainer that I built straight from the box a year or so ago. It’s a strange scale to do an aircraft in but it’s something different and is a really good fitt[...]

OK if nobody’s going to post today…over 1000 I go….

Such a nice number. I'll "Rocket" over the top with this hasegawa 1/32 Komet I did last year. For it's age it's still a cool kit. Pretty much kept to what was in the box, except for making a couple of "Luftstanders" to disply the kit-supplied ro[...]
