Quinta Studios 1/48 P-38F Interior Detail Set For The Tamiya Kit

As I was finally getting around to get started on the fairly new Tamiya P-38F/G Lightning. It's amazing it has been out for over a year. I have been building Tamiya kits in order that starting with Ki-84 Hayate Frank way back in 1992. So to[...]

1/48 Tamiya P-38G “Zirkus Rosarius”

In looking for something different I chose to my second Tamiya P-38 as a captured aircraft, albeit flown briefly, and evaluated by the Luftwaffe. I added Ultracast wheels, Eduard steel belts on kit seat and the guns are Master barrels set for [...]

Upcoming kit reviews. Meng Dr-1 with MVR bust, and Tamiya P-38H Limited Edition kits

Several weeks ago I received these kits from Sprue Brothers. I was able to get my hands on these two thanks to my loving wife (for putting up with me) and an available balance on a credit card. I also want to thank Paul Nash, @white4freak fo[...]

P-38 Lightening

This is one of my first aircraft models. A couple weeks ago I was looking around on Imodler and decided that I wanted to build an aircraft. I chose the P-38 because it is my favorite WW2 plane. I originally thought I would have problems with the[...]

Tomahawk! Curtiss Mk. ii in 1/48

This is AK431, a workhorse from the North Africa campaign, based in Fayid, Egypt in 1943. I was attracted to the P-40’s battered, leaky look - a survivor in a tough environment. Apart from an unfortunate Me-109 I mauled as a 10-year-old, this is[...]

Hasegawa, 1:48 Scale Focke-Wulf Fw-190A-4 “Wurger”

This is my latest build. Finished it about a week ago, along with the Tamiya P-38, which I still need to run the aerials on. Great kit, that really went together well. Excellent detail, throughout even if it is a little fiddley in s[...]

P-38H made from Tamiya’s new Lightning kit

This is probably the most popular kit released recently and I've finally got around to finishing my build. Went for aftermarket decals because the two markings offered from the box are pretty dull to my eyes. Also has the benefit of being a P-38[...]

P-38F Lightning, Moms favorite, 1/72 Hasegawa

Inspired by the recent P-38 builds of late, I acquired a vintage Hasegawa kit, where you have to do a little surgery on the nacelles to model the F version. Using a combo of spares and USAAF letters and number sheet from Microscale, I did an Ale[...]
