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[...]

1/72 Italeri Henschel Hs-129B-2 (No.1294)

Built straight from the box, with kit decals. Although quite an od kit, and may lack some detail by today's standards, it is still a very nice and easy build.

Tamiya 1/32 Scale P-51D with aluminum skin Part 1

Hello fellow modelers! Well i'm at it again with the aluminum skin builds. As you can see I am well under way on this P-51D from Tamiya. Great kit so far, few little fit issues but nothing crazy. Scratch built the seat cushion some wiring and of[...]

Airfix 1/48 Ju 87B Stuka

Hello! This is my recent project, a classic WW2 warbird. Nice kit, everything went well. Unfortunately, the clear part, which would allow to build a full open canopy, came damaged beyond repair. It had a L shape hole right on the top. So, I had[...]

Airfix 1/48 Spitfire PR. XIX

Hello iModeler! This is my recently finished Airfix Spitfire PR. XIX. Although the interferon detail was not as crisp as the newly tooled Airfix Mk. V Spitfire, it was still a fun kit and went together rather nicely. Build was OOB, paint was [...]

Tiger I

I got this Tiger a while ago as a gift. Since most of my other armored vehicles are painted in one color such as grey or green, I wanted to try something new. Originally I had a camouflage template for the tank but I ended up coming up with my o[...]

Rusty old T-34

I built this T-34 as part of a larger diorama that I am going to build. I experimented a lot with different techniques such as using a sponge to paint chipped paint. Overall it was a very fun build.

Completed Late-War Western Front Fighters Collection (1/48)

Focke-Wulf Fw 190A-8: The Butcher Bird
