This one doesn't need weathering. This is my first motorcycle model.
I have added the Tamiya's front fork upgrade. The wheel cover is covered by carbon fiber decal.
I really like the effect of satin vanish with the carbon fiber decal.
... Eduard 1/48 Dual Combo kit, totally OOB. Due to too small/vague locating pins, these guys are a bit fiddley, especially having to apply the wing decals first. On the second model I learned that attaching the positively located "N" struts f[...]
... other pics posted here before, but as Black History Month comes to a close soon, I thought an homage to the Tuskegee Airmen was in order. No 72, "Ina the Macon Belle", flown by Lee Archer- One half of the 332nd's "Gruesome Twosome", the oth[...]
I had the modelcollect 1:72 E-75 and wanted to upgun it to 128mm based on images I'd seen online. I found a barrel on ebay and got to work in Fusion 3D to make a new Turret. I printed the turret via Shapeways and bashed some of the detail from[...]
I finished the Trumpeter's kit with a few additions. The canvases on the tank are made of napkins. I tried to make add-on armors from unused parts of old models. I used the MIG Winter Camo Set product for the paint chippings on the tank. I hope [...]
I really like Sherman with cast hull. This is a Firefly from Guards Arm. Div., 5 Guards Arm. Brig., 5 Btl. Coldstream Guards, ASqn 2C.
I added some stowage from Legend. The figure is from a Minecraft British tank crew set.
Recently I finished my adventure with 1/24 scale planes and started playing with 1/16 scale tanks. I present my first model on this scale, which I worked on for 3 months. This is Tiger I from Boss Hobby. The model is very impressive, it is 52 cm[...]
Just another technical. This one is 1/24 and the base kit is a Fujimi pickup brand. I just added the extra details I had on hand, like the gun, scratch built/kitbashed the gun mount and modified the interior just a little.
This was Major John Glenn's F-86F-30 in the late stage of the Korean war.
I just added the Aire cockpit detail set to make it more interesting. Unfortunately, this model's windshield is on the thick side, so the interior is hard to see.
G’day all, it’s been an age since I posted here as life has been in the way of modelling recently. Unfortunately I still don’t have a project to share but I thought some of you might be interested in this.
I recently took my son to the Australia[...]
