Taking a break from all of the excitement going on around here right now, the YouTube shooting within view from my home and with helicopters hovering over my house I decided to post this.
This is an (almost) "Nose Art Group" build, Marking on th[...]
These aircraft were just some of the many models entered in the 1/72 - 1/32 scale classes. My Westland Wyvern 1/48 Trumpeter was awarded the best in show for 1/48 scale and my Huey Hog Gunship 1/35 Academy MRC for Rotorcraft. Jets best in show 1[...]
When I purchased a couple Tiger Model AFV's a while ago, I also got a couple of tooncraft which resemble Hasegawa's eggplanes. One of them was a Bf109 and the other a Corsair. To get my mojo back I got my hands on the latter one recently and you[...]
Another Tamiya kit at 1/48 scale (all my aircraft models are at the same scale...) It belongs to US Navy VF-17 Jolly Rogers at Pacific Theatre of Operations in 1944.
I suspect most any modeler who has been at it for a while decides to take on a challenge to do something a bit off the beaten track. I've always been attracted to the F4U Corsair and have lost track of how many of them I've built over the years.[...]
I just cannot build enough F4U's, especially the later version models such as this "-5N". This particular model was sitting in my stash for over 10 years. I had passed it over many times because it was just a "Monogram" kit and did not give it[...]
I highly recommend this model due it's incredible level of detail out of the box, as well as, the high standard of engineering resulting in perfect fits. Yes, at over $150.00 USD, it is considered pricey, but after building this wonderful kit I[...]
Just so you all know I’m not sandbagging a shelf full of models to post on the site. I really just discovered iModeler in the last week so I’m playing catch up and really enjoy hearing all your feedback.
My bride gave me an airbrush for my bir[...]
Corsair built the Tamiya kit in 1:48 scale.
I built one of my Minicraft 1/48 F4U-4B kits with Tamiya 1/48 F4U wing fold hinge parts.
I made resin copies of Tamiya 1/48 F4U-1 oil cooler inlets, then cut out 3 of the vanes to modify them to match F4U-4 inlets. They have a much better shape [...]
