Academy 1/48 F-15I, Ra'am

A detailed kit by Academy. Among the few IDF dedicated kits that does not need any adaptations.

1/72 Academy B-29A

I got this kit as a practice run for Academy's B-50D with the idea if I was going to bungle something it would be something that was easy to replace. No one glaring problem presented itself thru the build; if I was to whine about something [...]

Desert Shark

Here’s my Academy P-40 in 1/72 scale. It’s pretty typical of most Academy models I’ve done. Details in the cockpit are sparse but, a closed canopy and careful painting gives the impression more is there. Parts fit is very good and [...]

Siam Spit...1/48 Supermarine Spitfre FR.XIVe, Royal Thai Airforce

Suggesting my dad most of the time more rarely seen or exotic schemes. So here´s his latest effort. Academy Special Edition kit version, decals form the kit and Siam Scale, added Eduard seatbelts, rocket mounts and bomb racks. Painted [...]

Academy 1/48 F-111E

The origins of the F-111 can be traced back to the early 60s, when both the USAF and USN were seeking their new supersonic, heavily armed, twin seat, twin engine aircraft, where Robert McNamara, then Secretary of Defense, formally directed [...]

Academy 1/48 A-10C Warthog: “The Best Hog Is A Filthy Hog!”

Here is my Academy 1/48 A-10C Warthog. This represents a jet from the 354th Fighter Squadron “Bulldogs” supporting Operation Inherent Resolve in June 2017. Photo references show that these jets were covered with gun soot from nonstop [...]

1/72 Academy F-4J Phantom US Navy

Not much I can say about this one. This box was sitting on a shelf in my garage for a while. It's a "no glue, no paint" model from Academy that I got from a friend (who got it from another friend). No one was really interested in [...]

Academy 1/144 B-52H

I'd say another teeny gem by Academy but it ain't so teeny. It's still a gem tho, with outstanding fit and surprising detail given its scale...they even give you canopy masks in the kit. Decals are tiny and numerous but they are easy to [...]

B-17 F Academy 1/72 Operation Frantic-1 1944.

(link) Back to the past again... Academy B-17 F model from 1994. Despite the passage of time, it is still quite good, although outclassed by models from, for example, Airfix. However, the pleasure of an older model is enormous, especially [...]

Academy 1/72 F4U-1a New Zealand

I had decided to join the Jim Sullivan group build with a Corsair, and then saw a couple of other iModelers post builds of this aircraft assembled from the remains of two damaged aircraft that had worn different paint schemes. I found a [...]
