How a giant became a dwarf: C-124 Globemaster II from Roden

The challenge of depicting such a huge aircraft as the Globemaster II on such a small scale as 1:144 is particularly fascinating for me. But the question of whether one could credibly represent the really big in the really small was only one, al[...]

The “Whispering Giant”: timeless elegance, born too late. Bristol Britannia from Roden

If there should be a technical incarnation of the design elegance of the 50s, the Bristol Britannia would probably be a candidate for it. Her elegant lines are as inspiring today as they were then, and her nickname "Whispering Giant" also speaks[...]

Roden 1/144th Lockheed C-141B Starlifter

Another completed Roden kit. I had purchased a Caracal Decal set for C-141 Starlifters some time ago and they sat in the 'future projects maybe' pile. I then picked up a Roden Starlifter and eventually got around to this result. Whilst I enjoy[...]

C-124A GLOBEMASTER by RODEN MODELS – PART – 4

Masking and painting was a bit time consuming, but in the end it was worth applying and removing all that tape. None of the Tamiya paints was pulled off by the tape. My first photo shows a printed color side view by Roden which shows the final [...]

C-124A GLOBEMASTER by RODEN MODELS – PART 3.

This segment is titled "C-124A-WINGS/ENGINES" and is Part 3 of the build. I started building the 4 engines which went together A-OK. I added some thin card stock to the inside of the motor frames. When I slipped on the front end of the engines [...]

C-124A GLOBEMASTER by RODEN MODELS. Part-1.
