It's been a while since I updated you on my progress with Sanger's massive 1/48th scale vacuform B-52H project.
Since last time I've worked on the fuselage, scratch-building the main undercarriage bays, as well as adding numerous bulkheads and[...]
I love U.S. Navy planes and specially those of the yellow wings era, but the Curtiss Soc Seagull is amazing. Unfortunately biplanes of this period are very difficult to be found in 1/48 scale. The Curtiss Seagull is, from my view point, very in[...]
Welsh Models are known for the vacform/resin kits. This kit was a challenge in some areas, in particular getting a solid join between the vacform fuselage and resin wing roots. The other issue I had was the amount of nose weight required to coun[...]
Finished this model at the end of last year 2016, took me at least one and half years to build, lots of scratch building including redoing the vertical tail, altering the fuselage where the wings are located as the step underneath on the origina[...]
Oh the joy of building a model – or welcome to the dark side!

The F2F-1 was the first of a long line of successful Grumman single-seat fighters. The company’s success with the two seat FF 1, which when introduced in 1931 was significantly faster than any U.S. single seat fighter of its time, resulted in B[...]
It is just for interesting. I made this kit about nearly 20 years ago when we received a sample from AllianceModels at Model and Maquette Magazine (long defunct sadly). These kits were fairly rare even when they released (and not too high qualit[...]
I started this back in November of 2014, and after 8 months of blood, sweat and tears, I've got my big C-17 finished.
There are two kits currently available in 1/72nd of the C-17: one being the Anigrand Craftworks resin kit, and the other is th[...]
This is my 1/72 Welshmodel, resin and vacform model of the Boeing 737 T-43A, not the most easiest of builds especially when trying to glue resin wings to a vacformed body, but in the end it came out OK
This is my Aeroclub vac form model of the Vickers Varsity, "Flying Pig" as some affectionately called it in the RAF
