A 1970s white box release of the venerable Monogram Dauntless. Before Accurate Miniatures and Hasegawa came in the the game, this was the only 1/48 scale SBD available. It was originally released in the early 60s and as was the trend with Mono[...]
I began this kit only a few weeks ago, and given that this was my second go at an AM Mustang, the build went fairly smoothly, but not without some hiccups.
Firstly, I built this kit out of the box, with only the addition of Eduard belts to [...]
Recently I’ve complete two world war 2 era Russian aircraft. A Zvezda PE-2 and a A.M. IL-2. The Zvezda kit is an awesome kit to build, perhaps one of the best kits on the market. The Accurate Miniatures kit wasn’t too bad either, but not as tro[...]
Here is my build of the great Accurate Miniatures TBF Avenger 1in 1/48. I actually had the Pacific version and had to buy Atlantic Scheme decals online. They were a bit old, so I substituted some of the stars and bars from other kits [...]
Monogram's venerable four star "plastikit" SBD Dauntless was originally released in 1960. It was until the Accurate Miniatures and Hasegawa SBDs the only game in town in 1/48. Over the years some very impressive models have been built using th[...]

This is an Accurate Miniatures P-51B that has been patiently waiting in my stash to be built for over 20 years. I have to confess that I’m not a huge Mustang fan, but have collected a few of the new Airfix and Eduard “D” models to add to the co[...]
This is the Academy boxing of the Accurate Miniatures kit. I bought it second-hand for my wife to give me for Christmas in 2018 and I couldn't wait to start it straight away. It only took me about three months elapsed time to finish, which is [...]
I think it's time to put this one into the case and call it complete.
This kit is the Italeri re-pop of the old AM A-36 that many a folks are familiar with. In the usual style there were a number of decals to choose from, however, this being[...]
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[...]
