I started this project yesterday, and finished it up this afternoon. As with all of Sweets' kits, I loved it. A relaxing (mostly), easy build and 4 really cool livery. The model was airbrushed with Alclad II White Aluminum, and Gunze-Sangyo acry[...]
I finished this up a week or two ago. It's built OOB and weathered with Ammo by Mig Oilbrushers. The hangar backdrop is from Coastal Kits.
The first time I built Gundam models from Bandai.
The kit is easy to assemble, and everything fits well. The decals are dry transfers. They are thick, and they don't conform to the surface. I found some wet transfer replacement decal on eBay.[...]
Second & Third completion for 2021. The ubiquitous Sweet Mustangs in 1/144. This project was primarily an exercise in oil weathering, in particular, MiG Oilbrushers. Overall, I'm pleased with the results. Gunze-Sangyo paints, stretched sprue[...]
This model has been finished in December 2020, but photos and editing dragged on a bit. The kit is Mikro Mir, which I really like and highly recommend. This is the most crisp and delicate short-run kit I've seen. Mikro Mir's Tu-2[...]
That Tempest II in July is nice. Hopefully the S.199 will be in 1/48 first. 4-cannon Fw-190A-5 is also interesting, as is the Spitfire V in the fall. I like the Fw-190F-8.
Doing 109Es with the Special Hobby kit is great - that is absolutely t[...]
There is a locked subject somewhere in dungeons of kampfgruppe144 forum where I enthusiastically begin this kit. 2014? There was this idea on the way of adding photoetched details to it. So instead of quick build it became protot[...]
This is the 1/144 Revel A330 Airbus (LTU Boxing) which I started a couple of years ago, I just managed to finish it up. It was built out of the box with only decals changed. I used Hawkeye Models Australia decals on it to represent VH-QPD 'Port [...]
This was a quick build that went quite smooth - these Revell kits are really nice and go together without too much issues. I decided to build it gear-up so I had to make two "figures" (in this scale they are really only two tiny blobs of clay th[...]
I like unusual looking airplanes and Grumman sure made one with this X-29.
I wonder where is X-1 to X-28 ?
This model was a charm to build, but I do not recall if I did much research. The photo's do not show hardly any flashing on this Drago[...]
