Tamiya Ki-61 with ‘that’ colour scheme

This was a quick build of Tamiya's beautifully engineered Ki-61-Id Hien kit in 1/48 scale which I bought on a work trip to Tokyo years ago and have only just got around to building now that lockdowns are over and I can access my workshop again! [...]

Academy 1/700 USS Enterprise aka The Grey Ghost aka The Big E

Today is the 79th anniversary of the climatic day of the Battle of Midway so here is a review of a build in honor of today. FYI, I did publish the original photo as part of my collection of PTO models but did not submit the entire review (the o[...]

1/35 M4A2 Marine Sherman by Academy

Thought I might share my older work from last year, this is the M4A2 Sherman from Academy, in 1/35 scale. I understand that how 'weathered' for a working tank could be controversial. Despite that, I just wanted to make mine look special. Hey i[...]

Tamiya G4M1 ‘Betty’ & A6M3 ‘Hamp’ 1/48, Operation Vengeance Collection

I like to think I know a fair bit about WW2 aviation, but I didn't expect how massive the G4M1 was until the box arrived in the post. At a wingspan of 41.6cm, and a fuselage length of 51.8cm, this model dwarfs anything else I've made and doesn't[...]

Revell 1/48 Bristol Beaufighter TF.X

For Revell there's a fair amount of detail here but the fit is a bit iffy to say the least. I saw on here that somebody else had had issues with the fit of the engines and main undercarriage. They were not wrong. Still, with a bit of following [...]

Pz.Kpfw. II Ausf. J

Although this German made tank does not see much war, it is one of the iconic tanks thanks to computer games. I painted this tank in solid yellow. I preferred Mission Models MMP011 Dunkelgelb RAL 7028 to paint the model. I hope you like it, best[...]

Pz. VIII Maus

I got this model and built it. It is one of my favorite builds. Check out this link for my YouTube channel to see model unboxing and virtual tours and me playing games.

KAWASAKI Ki61-I Hei HIEN (Tony) 1/32 scale model, Hasegawa kit. Built out of a box, except the aftermarket seatbelts, copper wire brakelines and MM gun barrels. 6th "Shinten Seikutai", 18th Flight Regiment, Lt. Mitsuo Koyake, Kashiwa A.F. June [...]

I Remade My Oldest Surviving Childhood Model Kit

An old and flawed kit, but one that has a special place in the memory banks for me - when I was 12 we were told we could have a home made mascot on our desks for end of primary school exams. I persuaded my parents to get me a Flying Fortress mod[...]

A book: Fighters of World War II

This is a book I find myself coming back to every now and then. If you are into american hardware (plus the odd Spitfire) this is a must have. Written by Jeffrey L Ethell and Robert T Sand it is jam packed with mostly Sand's colour photos and sh[...]
