This is a 1/72 scale Yakovlev Yak-3 by Revell in the colours of a machine from 18. GIAP, East Prussia, 1945.
This was a pretty straight-forward build OOB. Everything fit together pretty nicely. I was well impressed with the full colour, glossy [...]
My father-in-law, Jack Terhune of Springfield, Missouri, was a U.S. Air Force veteran. He joined in March of 1950, after turning down several scholarships to play college football. He always said he joined to see the world and never got out of T[...]
And now for something that doesn't shoots, fires at or blows up things. One of the coolest TV shows on in the early 1960's was 'route 66', it had two guys driving across the America[and Canada] in a Corvette, working at odd jobs and interacting[...]
What can I say, if you want an exacting replica of the NB-52A in small scale, you CAN get there, but man it would be a lot of work. Me I decided to get a clean build, add some of the camera ports and windows and build it like a desk top display[...]
I have been searching for one of these in the shrink wrap for a while. I remember buying this kit at a small store above our local market. It was the 88 cent store, which was not like the modern 99 cent store, but more like an "everything they[...]

This took me over a month to finish and I'm really proud of the result. First of all, I am going to show some improve[...]
Following my project to restore or even to build vintage models which bring me good memories, now I went to this 1955 original Revell mold.
My oldest brother, 81 now, had one and it was probably the very first scale model I had seen, I suppose[...]
I don't normally build ww2 era planes and even rarer you can find 1:32 subject on my desk. But having Revell release this kit about 6 months before my good friend's birthday, who is (surprise surprise) a huge Maiden fan, the ever present "what t[...]
This is Revell's 1/32 Corsair from around the time I was born, so it's old. I picked it up for £10 during last year's Black Friday sales, due to the minimal investment I felt it was a ripe candidate for experimentation and it's the first kit I[...]
This is an older build, that is totally out of the box. I know the flaws of the kit but all that aside I remember it as a generally satisfactory build and there is no mistaking what it is. The fit was generally good, and overall went together [...]
