Pee Pjin JR-1 Hua Shang Ling 1/48 Chinatown Whatif Model

Chinese fighter, a cheaper answer to the Russian Su-34. It is characterized by the absence of a kitchen for long flights, due to the placement of a box of rice and chopsticks under the seats. The only known film was alienated by the Czech [...]

Testors 1/48th F19 Stealth617 Sqd. Royal Air Force

Loved building this kit. 10/10 would build again if the kits werent rarer than hibs fans at a home game 😉 Decals liberated from an old tornado kit, paint scheme roughly that of a 90's F4 Phantom II, dog hairs courtesy of my pooch.

It's time for Soviet mechas

It's my first post here on this wonderful forum. Hello everyone! I am Jared. Non-standard, sci-fi/what-if designs that look believable, intrigue me. Eventually, friends convinced me to turn a mech design into a usable model kit, instead of [...]

Mono Wheel – ‘The Ripper’

The Ripper - The overall build is based on Shane Baxley's, 3D design art. As usual, all the details were constructed using whatever looked the part. So, not all the details are accurate to the original 3D art that Shane did. I modified [...]

Jet car

This is german representative in land speed record breaking alternative after war history (say it 3 times fast).

My "what if" projects.

Some kits for me just lend themselves to a "what if" project. The two anigrand resin kits, XR-11, XR-12 for example (although I am ready to swear off resin kits, very painful to build). Sometimes an incomplete project for [...]

1/72 M1B1 Abrams MBT

So there was a proposal to up gun the Abrams in the late 70s, add an auto loader, and change the drive train to a diesel. There are a number of images and drawings floating around the web and I decided to build one. So behold, my take on [...]

What-if… RAAF Dassault Rafale

This is the second in a series of ‘what if’ aircraft that I’m building. In 1999 the Australian Department of Defence announced Project AIR 6000 "New Air Combat Capability (NACC)", which was intended to find a replacement [...]
