Brewster F2A-2 Buffalo – 1/48 Tamiya

So this is the second build that I had promised a few days ago, another kit saved from the proverbial Shelf of Doom. This Tamiya F2A-2 kit, much like the Hobbycraft P-36 that came before, was purchased for something like $6 many years ago, [...]

May 31 is Memorial Day in the US. One of 2 Federal Hollidays honouring the Armed Forces. In Light of that, and not having posted for a while I thought to show some of the really small Matchbox kits I have been dabbling in between trying [...]

Off the SoD – Special Hobby Brewster B-239 “Taivaan Helmi”

Deathtrap

Scale 1:72 Building time: 69hrs Here is my latest creation, once again what I love the most: a diorama. After some changes I called this one “Deathtrap” for obvious reason. It depicts a few Marines which have discovered an abandoned [...]
