Not another Mustang! Or:”That’s a Mustang … isn’t it?”

"This is a mustang or?" Strange that such a question arises with such a well-known aircraft icon as the P-51 Mustang! But this particular P-51 actually gives reason to ponder: as familiar as the contours may seem at first glance, a closer look r[...]

Revell 1:48 F-104G (CF-104) 417Sq. Cold Lake, Alberta

A nice kit with a few issues. The instructions want you to join the forward fuselage halves together first, then join the rear halves together and then put the two together as one. Do this and you'll have a whacking great seam to deal with. Glue[...]

Do I really need another Spitfire in my collection? Oh, yes! (or: how an old dream came true)

To the fortunately unasked question of whether "another Spitfire" is really necessary, I would answer: of course! One reason for this lies in the enormous range of what "Spitfire" can mean, as a Mk.I has very little in common with, say, a Mk. XI[...]

The first for the new year, 2020, is this Revell of Germany, Ilyushin Il-2, Stormovik. Actually this is a repop of the Accurate Minatures kit, and is STILL a very nice kit, albeit a wee bit fiddley overall. The kit itself builds well, and I f[...]

MiG Group Build recap

First, I would like to thank all the participants to this group build, wheter you finished your builds or not. I must admit, I expected slightly larger participation but I am nevertheless proud of the resulting builds and I hope our group build [...]

The Class of 2019: Completions, and a couple major repairs…

Hey Folks! At the end of the year, it's always nice to see everyone's , 'Year in Review'!! I do have a couple that are close, but they won't count, because this article deals with completed kits. All these kits are 1:48 Scale, from multiple [...]

Tamiya 1:48 Scale, Dewoitine D-520

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays everyone! It's been a wee bit since my last post, but I figured with the end of the year so close at hand, why not? Anyway, I had this kit sitting up in the stash, and I saw one in a video about the early part o[...]
