It was going to be literally out of the box

A while back on another site someone started a thread about building a kit without painting any of it. Just a pure build to see how well you could do without hiding flaws with paint. Most everyone said “no way.” But I kinda liked the idea and so[...]

Bob Typhoon! Nice to meet you.

When I first saw a photo of the Eurofighter FGR4 in the 75th anniversary Battle of Britain colors, I immediately put having a model of that plane on my want list. Eventually I picked up a Revell 1/72 Eurofighter and found the Caracal Models deca[...]

More Spitfirepalooza

Here’s another oldie, the Airfix 1/48 Spitfire Mk. 22/24. As many have commented, this was great kit for it’s time and I think it still holds up very well. The only failing for me with the version I bought was the decals. At the time the decals [...]

1/32 Hunter

This is another older build for my archive, the Revell 1/32 Hawker Hunter. Now I have at least one Hunter in 1/144, 1/72, 1/48 and 1/32 scale. It’s a beautiful aircraft in any scale, that’s for sure!

Spitfirepalooza: an Old Addition

Here’s one I did some years ago, the notorious Hasegawa Spitfire Mk. IX. I remember it being a typically good Hasegawa kit. The short nose is obvious and a bit distracting for me. Fortunately, the Eduard Spitfires have come along o give us a goo[...]

Spitfire Mk VIII

Recently I completed an Arii Spitfire Mk VIII. The MkVIII is my favorite version of the Spitfire and as fate would have it, there was this one waiting in my stash of unbuilt kits. It was the first time I had made extensive use of paper masks for[...]

1/72 Italeri Chinook HC.1

RAF Chinook used during the Falkland War built from the Italeri CH-47(HC.1) kit no 064. Built straight from the box, but modified some details according to the photos I found on the net of this Chinook. Still there might be some mistakes especia[...]

1/72 Matchbox Provost (Pk-30)

I built this from the original Matchbox kit (2 colour) that was issued in the mid 1970's. I don't know if it was ever issued under Revell (it seems not). The decals had the usual residue of the Matchbox decals of the era when applying them, but [...]

Airfix 1/48 Spitfire PR. XIX

Hello iModeler! This is my recently finished Airfix Spitfire PR. XIX. Although the interferon detail was not as crisp as the newly tooled Airfix Mk. V Spitfire, it was still a fun kit and went together rather nicely. Build was OOB, paint was [...]

1/72 Airfix Phantom FGR.2 1435 flight, RAF Mount Pleasant 1991

G’day all. Another Phantom!!! An annoying start followed by a pleasant build for the most part, I’m happy to say that this was an enjoyable project. The kit is built as XV466 ‘D’ Desperation while assigned to 1435 flight at RAF Mount Pleasant[...]
