Tamiya 1/48 P-51D “Little Freddie”

Hello all, First off, an introduction. I'm currently a senior in high school and I have been modeling for a year and a half. In that time I have ruined a few models but have also pumped out quite a few good ones as well. The pictures I have pos[...]

1/48 AMT Tigercat F7F-3N

Hi again- sorry for the multiple posts tonight- I only have now to do these. I took the AMT F7F, converted it using the HiTech resin parts, Obscureco props (the kit ones are, well.. backwards), and Squadron canopies, and finally metal Cutting Ed[...]

Accurate Miniatures 1/48 IL-2 Shturmovik

I saw a profile of this aircraft- yeah I know- you should use photos not someone's idea of a photo, but I couldn't resist- it was the only image I could find of a cannon toting IL-2! I used Scale Aircraft Modelling's article on Shturmoviks a whi[...]

Hobbycraft 1/48 Ju-88- with a LOT of changes

Hi all, I got the Hobbycraft 1/48 Ju-88 unaware of all its issues! I had the support of a lot of online modelling contacts to help me fix this sow's ear! Spare props from a Dragon Ju-88, metal gear legs from Airwaves I can't remember? Wheels fro[...]

48th Scale Monogram F-18

This was an early Monogram kit and featured the fuselage split horizontally. I sanded off all the panel lines and drew them back in with pencil. I wanted to see if I could use the low-vis scheme and still make an interesting scheme. I saw a pict[...]

Strv 122

Here's a little blast from the past, Swedish Strv 122 created using the Tamiya Leopard 2A5 kit and the HKCW convertion. Built by Anders Isaksson ( @aisak ) and shared here with his permission. A complete build-up article of this model was publi[...]

48th Scale War Weary Tigercat

Yes it did look that bad and I have the photo I used for reference. I started out looking for a different way to do a black scheme and found this shot in Squadron's book on the Tigercat. I added a resin nose, drilling it out to accept buckshot i[...]

Revell 1/32nd F-4 Phantom

Yes...a Revell kit - salvaged from the "Shelf of Doom". As with the vast majority of my builds, this aircraft represents no particular rendition of an actual type flown, nor does the 'load-out' necessarily reflect any "accuracy". I simply const[...]

Tamiya 1:48 A-1H Skyraider.

This is my A-1 Skyraider. Really it is a nice kit to build, it is out of the box except for the guns, made of hypodermic needles. Painted with Gunze acrylics and weathered with oils. Hope you like it! Best regards. Emeterio.
