Something I stumbled upon from a fellow modeller. A brief History of some of the giants in models.
This kit has been hiding in my stash for more than a year. Due to bad experiences with Revell kits I've always been pushing it aside...but then came that mandatory social distancing . Well, it's a nice surprize. The kit is well detailed for 1/72[...]
This build is a commission build. A friend who supported our A-10’s in Afghanistan during Operation Enduring Freedom in 2012 purchased the Revell 1/48 A-10 Warthog to build it as one of the 303rd Expeditionary Fighter Squadron aircraft. This par[...]
I had purchased this Revell M-35 MIlitaty Truck 1/40 scale kit probably before 1980, and first built in 1996. This kit was injected in 1969 in Brazil by A. Kikoler company, but first produced in 1958 in USA.

In mid-December 1943, at the Arado facilities in Landeshut/Schlesien, work began on a flying wing project series under the direction of Dr.-Ing. W. Laute. This was further elaborated by Dipl. Ing. Kosin and Lehmann of Arado under the title of "[...]

I love to build Cadillac car's as I owned 3 of them starting out in 1951, which is a long time ago.
This 1/25th scale Cadillac "Eldorado" Hard Top kit was made by Revell. All the parts were nicely formed and as you can see there was next to no [...]
This is my latest off the bench and one that gave me lots of problems. Most if not all of the issues were self inflicted. The kit supplied cockpit is OK but wanting more I found a True Detail set a.k.a. Victor, that I was really happy with and [...]
Really not much to say about this kit. Not a bad kit, but decals are frustrating. Would have never bought it if I didn't get this idea for this mini diorama. Water and fire effects made out of silicone, isolation foam and cotton.
For many modelers of World War II ships, Revell's 1/720 scale model of the USS Intrepid (CV – 11) was an early favorite. It was cheap (two dollars, compared to four dollars for a Tamiya Akagi), easy to build, and gave you a big rectangular fligh[...]
