Tamiya 1/48 Mitsubishi J2M3 Raiden Empire of Japan GB

My second entry into Louis Gardner's Empire of Japan Group Build,. Thanks for the invitation Louis as I needed an excuse to build this kit and you provided it. This kit has been around for some time and has both raised as well as some recesse[...]

Amy Johnson’s DH.60G Gipsy Moth

Amy Johnson (1903-1941) was a record-setting English pilot who was very active during the thirties. In 1930, the 26 year old Johnson became the first woman to fly solo from Great Britain to Australia, flying from Croydon to Darwin, a flight wh[...]

Tamiya 1/48 Me-109E-3 in Romanian Colors

I found some really interesting decals for a Romanian Me-109E-3 that led to this build. These planes were former Luftwaffe planes that were handed over to the Romanians. They repainted the planes in their own colors and markings. I used a re[...]

1/48 Airfix P-51D

I finished my 1/48 Airfix P-51D. I did not have a D in my collection. It has been years since I built a 1/48 kit. Painted with Various shades of Alclad (fuselage:Duraluminum, Stainless Steel and White Aluminum and wings in Aluminum.) I used Gunz[...]

Cleaver’s Inspiration

While working on the two armor kits I recently posted I listened to the Audible version of Tom Cleaver’s Holding the Line, a Book about the naval air war in Korea. The book was very enjoyable and inspired me to build a Korean War Corsair. I went[...]

Tamiya Panzer III

Modelsvit 1/48 P-51H/F-51H

The P-51H/F-51H was the last of the single seat ponies built by NAA. It was made in kit form for 1/48 scale in 1999-2000 by HiPM (best forgotten) and Classic Airframes (not the easiest build.) It wasn't till Dec 2019 when Modelsvit released t[...]

SG-38, 1/48 Special Hobby

This small and not-so-well known plane is my latest build. The goal was to practice wood textures and rigging before I start other, larger projects. There are multiple packaging released by Special Hobby, both in 1:72 and 1:48 scale. You shou[...]

Macchi C.202 Serie III

I decided to post this after seeing Stéphane Bredel’s excellent build of another Macchi C.202. I built this kit way back in 2005. The subject this model represents is the aircraft M.M.7720, 84-1, which was almost certainly flown by Capitano Fr[...]

Macchi C.202 Folgore – 21° Gruppo Autonomo C.T. – 1943

Bonjour dear iModelers, I wanted to make a "full options" model, with difficult camouflage, just to test my possibilities. My choice fell on the MC.202 Folgore d'Hasegawa, re-boxed by Eduard in 2016 in Limited Edition (#1132), i.e. with some re[...]
