Heading Home

This was my grand adventure into creating water. I got pretty involved in the German S-Boat with a lot of aftermarket PE sets. I found a tutorial on doing water on the internet and gave it a shot. I scratch-built the buoy and seagulls and found [...]

Eduard 1/32 Bf109E1, Jagdgruppe 88 “Legion Condor”

Here is my rendition of a Legion Condor Messerschmitt Bf109E1 using the Eduard 1/32 kit. This is the aircraft of Uffz. Heinrich Windemuth, who was the last member of Jadggruppe88 KIA in Spain. He was shot down on February 6th, 1939 while attac[...]

Minicraft 1/144th BUFF

Pretty basic 2-day build. No interior, no gear, a one-color paint job and a few decals. 1/144th isn't usually a favorite of mine (unless it's a pretty big aircraft to begin with) - failing eyesight and shaky hands don't make for a good combinat[...]

Revell 1:144 737 ”6000th 737” LN-NOL

My recently finished Revell 737 with Braz winglets. Nice kit, but needs adjustments. This is my first airliner, and I think it came out quite well! I used cheap rattle can for the white parts, and Revell 31 for the nose. Enjoy, and feel free [...]

Revell 1:48 F-117A

Hello everybody on imodeler! First of all, this is my first post here, and I think this is a nice page! So, here is my recently build. Nice and easy, and it went together quite nice! I used Humbrol paints, and they were airbrushed. I hope you [...]

Building The KINETIC F-84F

By Jack Mugan Sometime last year at a model show I managed to pick up a new 48th scale kit from a model company called KINETIC. The vendor had a nice build up of the model on display and he assured me it was built right out of the box. I tho[...]

Need for Speed

The Need for Speed By Jack Mugan Have you ever been browsing through one of you reference books and suddenly see a photo of an aircraft in markings you somehow missed before? That is what happened to me while reading my Squadron in acti[...]

1/32nd FW-190D

This post is more a test of Firefox than anything else. My very first post (the Z-M Skyraider) was done through Firefox - my usual browser). Subsequent articles were posted via Safari because the other one stopped working [well, maybe it wasn't [...]

Trumpeter 1/32nd F-105G “Wild Weasel”

BIG model....25" nose-to-tail - 12" wingspan. Painted, marked and loaded to my own likes (which means it ain't necessarily "accurate"). Not an ideal photo background, but uncluttered nonetheless - except for those fishin' lines (gotta get that [...]
