P-38 Lightning Review Part 2,Hasegawa 1/48th

Ever since Tamiya announced the that they were going to do a P-38 earlier this year, it was like wow and ever since that we have been impatiently waiting for it to hit the shelves. With one numb nut know it all swearing they will not do an earl[...]

3SQN RAAF F/A-18A Hornet “Cobra”

This model represents F/A-18A A21-8, the first Hornet to be delivered to a RAAF combat squadron. In August 1985, 2 Operational Conversion Unit (2OCU) commenced training Hornet pilots using the first four F/A-18B two-seater Hornets to be deliver[...]

Hobby Boss 1/48 Sukhoi Su-27 Flanker-B Russian Airforce

First post here. After being active on Hyperscale and Britmodeller for a while, trying out something new. Taking pics and doing posts for my father due to his rather basic computer and English skills. I´m a modeler too, but haven´t built a model[...]

1:48 HobbyBoss F8F-1 Bearcat “Beetle Bomb” Blue Angels

Here’s my grimy looking Blue Angels’ F8F-1 “Beetle Bomb” Bearcat circa late 1949 as it might have looked after a hard weekend working an airshow. Note the attached photo of the actual plane. By early 1948 the Blue Angels were flying four blue F[...]

Hobby Boss 1/48 YF-23 Black Widow II

This has been one of my favourite designs since I was a child. I had fun building this and tried a few new ideas like tinting the canopy and colour variation on the heat tiles in the exhaust. This was also the first kit I used pre-shading on. Th[...]

Scrappy Scooter! 1/72 Hobby Boss A-4E Skyhawk

OOB. If you’ve built the Hasegawa Scooter, this is pretty much the same but in 1/72. It’s just missing the deployed slats. Why won’t anyone do this?!?

Hello imodelers, I am happy to present my version of the F3H-2N as my first model on this site. It is the Hobby Boss kit, with Eduard PE cockpit set. Painted with Aqueous Hobby Color and Vallejo Metal Color. Decals come from the excellent Furbal[...]

Revell’s 1/48th dehavilland mosquito-actually not a bad kit

A quick summary of a review I did on the Revell Mosquito last in comparison to the Tamiya Mosquito. Both kits very detailed. The idea was bandied about among friends and not so friendly ones as well. Anyone remember the response whe[...]

1/48 i. A. R. 80

This is the Hobby Boss kit. The plane I chose to model was an early production aircraft that was utilized as a "school" plane that only carried the outboard wing guns. I blanked off the inner guns and shell ejection chutes. The kit aerial is i[...]

Hobby Boss 1:48 Gerhard Barkhorn’s Fw 190D-9

Rather proud of this build, the only difficulty I had with it was when joining the wings to the fuselage, because the front bulkhead was too long. ChamptionScaleModelling solved it by shaving it until the wings fitted. The JG6 ID band was hand p[...]
