Academy 1/700 USS Enterprise aka The Grey Ghost aka The Big E

Today is the 79th anniversary of the climatic day of the Battle of Midway so here is a review of a build in honor of today. FYI, I did publish the original photo as part of my collection of PTO models but did not submit the entire review (the o[...]

Republic P-47N Thunderbolt, Academy 1/48, PTO

The 318th Fighter Group mainly had a mixed bag of P-39's, P-40's and P-47D's in a training defensive role over the Hawaiian Islands, limited to their range until the US had captured the Marianas. The P-47N first arrived on scene in June 1945[...]

Academy 1/72 Hawker Hurricane Mk. IIc

I built this kit last year after I finished building the MPC's Hurricane Mk. I. Once I started working on this kit, I was not able to stop. It's a nice and simple kit of the Hurricane Mk. IIc. All of the parts goes together rather well with very[...]

1/72 Academy P-51 “North Africa”

1/35 M4A2 Marine Sherman by Academy

Thought I might share my older work from last year, this is the M4A2 Sherman from Academy, in 1/35 scale. I understand that how 'weathered' for a working tank could be controversial. Despite that, I just wanted to make mine look special. Hey i[...]

IDF Sho’t Kal & M51 Super Sherman

Hello everyone! It's my first post here. These are my works on IDF's Sho't Kal & M51 Super Sherman. They are in 1/35 scale, from AFV Club and Academy respectively. I built the M51 first, so you could see some differences, or improvements y[...]
