When I got back into modeling, I had been out for a long time and was amazed at what detail could be attained with resin. So of course I took a very good model the Tamiya He-219 Owl, and try and make it better. I used the Aires resin kit. I [...]
Well,this kit was admired by me since the early 70ies. I never got it cause Airfix was easy to get, Revell kind of exotic American. No one else made a condor at that time.Thanks to eBay I got the Revell 1/72 scale FW-200 condor last winter. Orig[...]
Hi to all seekers of detail in our models.
In starting up again in model making , this since my childhood and teenage years ! I have been awed in the level of detailing that one can do now having pushed the rendering to such realism that it begs[...]

The one thing that wasn't great that was out of my control was that the panel lines on the the top of the f[...]
What do you do with a Lindberg kit ? What do you do with one that's missing parts? Can't give it away, or sell it, so just have some fun with it ! Take a color you have little use for, some decals, you don't need and build a hypothetical r[...]
Another in my series from the back of the display case. This time a real oldie, built over 33 years ago. Inspired by reading 'Night Fighter' by C.F. Rawnsley, my intent was to build a display of 1/72 scale WW II night fighters centered around[...]
One of my later efforts, Tamiya's 1:48 scale Heinkel He-219. A really nice model and a good build. Good detail inside and out, and most importantly, the fit was excellent so that negated a WHOLE lot of sanding.
The cockpit is a unique arrang[...]
