Hobbyboss F-80 C Shooting Star “Saggin Dragon”

Although serving in small numbers towards the end of World War II, Lockheed’s pugnacious fighter made a name for itself as a fighter and strike bomber during the Korean War. To commemorate the start of the Korean War 70 years ago and to pay homa[...]

1/35 Academy M1A2 Abrams SEP v2 TUSK II

The Abrams tank has always been a challenge for me to model. I've never had a happy time building these, being so infuriated by the old Dragon offering with the separate guide teeth on their floppy, rubbery tracks that I didn't even bother cons[...]

Academy 1/48 P-47N Thunderbolt

This was a fun build! I've never had much luck with Academy's decals, so when I found the cool Hawaii ANG sheet, I was set. Although maybe basic by some standards, I think the cockpit builds up nicely after a wash and drybrushing. Same with t[...]

f-4j ”jolly rogers” academy 1/48

Beatiful kit i think vallue for money. Exceptional fitting with very little amount of putty. Attention needs on the wheel bay because you have to put them before you close the wings an you have to be careful to be straight. The colours i used ar[...]

Academy 1/72 F-18F US Navy

Hello, This my recent project, OOB. A really easy kit, nice fitting and engineering. The only, and big, complain are the decals. They're virtually useless, way too thick. So, I put it on hold and waited for a new set from ebay. Hope you enjoy! [...]

Academy Minicraft LB-30 Liberator

QANTAS obtained 4 EX-RAF Consolidated LB-30 Liberators from BOAC in 1944 to supplement the Catalinas servicing the Kangaroo Route (or Double Sunrise route) to Colombo in Ceylon. They did the trip 5 hours faster and could carry 4 times the payloa[...]

Academy SBD-5 Dauntless 1/48

Hello, Just finished this one here. It's the old Accurate Miniatures reboxed by Academy. I've been reading a lot of praising for this kit, the best Dauntless in this scale, a classic etc etc. Well, I have to say, not a bad kit, in general, but[...]

1/48th MH-53E Sea Dragon

The Sea Dragon is a beast whether you see the real thing up close, or like myself, you build the Academy 1/48th scale version. And, I don't mean beast as in difficult to build. Quite the opposite, this kit is exquisite, both in fit and in fide[...]

North American T-6G / Israeli Air Force

The North American Aviation T-6 is an advanced American single engine training aircraft used to train pilots from the United States and more than 60 other countries. I am particularly passionate about this plane, mainly for its use in the Brazil[...]
