This is the 1/48 Classic Airframes kit which comprises of resin main parts, metal landing gear legs and tail wheel, 2 well molded very clear vac canopies and decals. The kit was built OOB and painted using Vallejo Metal Colors. The kit is a st[...]
This is another two-winger model I built. It's in 1/48 scale and was made by "Classic Airframes." The box art says one name, while another name is listed on one of the parts. Let's call it both names.
I.M.A.N AND I.M.A.M. = "INMAN RO-37," and an[...]
I like this aircraft and have built it c1938. The kit however is challenging, it had an injection canopy which took some fitting, managed to get it on then realised I hadn't fitted several interior parts! Doh! The kit decals are excellent but fo[...]
This is my best guess at what this plane looked like. Opinions vary on this plane. Is it V3 or V4? Is the color silver paint, natural metal, natural metal with a tinted clear coat, light grey, or RLM 02? So, I just chose what I liked. I wen[...]

Not the easiest of kits but I found it a very enjoyable build. Mostly OOB but some of the struts were replaced as they were useless! Painted with GS aqueous paints, weathered with pastels and finished with Alclad II flat varnish.
This TA-4J kit was sitting for quite a while, and I finally finished it off at the end of this summer. Airbrushed gray but hand brushed tan and green- with brushed touchups on the gray area. I used Afterburner decals although the same markings a[...]
