1/48 Lloyd CL II by Special Hobby

World War I began as the last Napoleonic War revolving around infantry, artillery and cavalry, but quickly devolved into mass carnage at the hands of machine guns, barbed wire, poison gas and massed high explosives. Sweeping maneuver was replac[...]

Special Hobby H-21 Shawnee in German service

this is a multi media kit it was a tough but fun build and an interesting subject

Believe I’ll post something today, too….

Built this Special Hobby 1/32 A5M when it first came out. A fairly easy build, added some interior and engine details. Finish is Alclad White Aluminum mixed with a littleTestor's flat yellow, to get the "Japanese Navy protective coating" tinge. [...]

OK here it is, the wait is over for Bill Koppos’s Favorite model…and the winner is…

Special Hobby's 1/32 scale Brewster Buffalo Mark I. Ta Da! (Cue Fireworks...) The maligned Brewster has always been a fascination of mine-why, I'm not sure. I like the looks, the barrel shape, different landing gear, cool glasshouse canopy. For[...]

Special Hobby Reggiane 2002

Another 1/48 offering with an interesting history if you're into the obscure and obsolete. Not bad to build, an improvement over some of their other kits. Not as interesting as some of the other Italian camo schemes, but it grew on me. Like fungus...

Special Hobby Bristol Blenheim Mk.1

1/48 , and an interesting aircraft, and usual "interpretive" build, as one needs to get the parts to somehow hold hands long enough for the glue to set. Built several years ago, sans gloss coat, panel lines or weathering. Ignorance sure is a tim[...]
