Airfix 1/72 Bristol Beaufort.

Another gem of a kit from Airfix. Flawless fit from start to finish. Built from the box, apart from an Eduard harness I added to the pilot seat. Finished in MRP paints, with some oils for final weathering. A highly enjoyable build, it took [...]

Me262 Night Fighter 1/48th Dragon

I finished this kit a few years back. Simply said, it is no Tamiya! I have not built a lot of Dragon model kits, but what I have built have all had the same trait. Basically subcomponents or assemblies fit together well, but when you [...]

1/48 Bristol Beaufighter Mk VIF – Malta 1942

My first attempt at an article or work in progress on this site, please bear with me! Recently purchased (more like invested) in a Harder-Steenbeck Infinity airbrush and decided to try this out on a new kit build; this Tamiya classic [...]

Classic Airfix Typhoon (1959) Tweaked Just a bit

One this kit I used a replacement Falcon vacu-form canopy, a prop and wheels from the Academy kit. Paint by Tamiya. Even thought it is over 60 years old it does scale well on a Bentley plan. This was a simple and fun build.

1/700 USS Miami CL-89

This is a resin kit that included a few sheets of PE details that I built almost completely out of the box. I did add after-market 5"/38 guns and turrets as well as 40mm Bofors, and 20mm Oerlikon guns. I've found that photoetch AA is [...]

5 – Grumman F8F-1 Bearcat 1/72 from Sword

I went into this build just wanting to use this kit as a practice but fell in love with this plane, it was designed to be a massive upgrade to the flying forces in WW2 but got there 2 weeks to late. Because of the lack of it's service I [...]

P-400. The Guadalcanal Cobra.

Helo. This Eduard kit was build some time ago. Its the weekend edition. Build simply oob and painted with Gunze and Tamiya acrylic paints. The US national markings are painted on it as weathered. Best regards

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 [...]

Tamiya F4U-1A Corsair, 1/48. The Big Hog.

I thought I'd finally get around to posting this Corsair I built last year, making it so all my Corsairs are uploaded here in one form or another. This model in particular taught me a lot and I am planning on basically remaking it (but as [...]

1/32 Monogram ProModeler (Hasegawa) Messerschmitt Bf 109 G-4 Trop (Schwarze 1, Oblt. Franz Schiess)

This is my firs article on iModeler, so it's a great pleasure to share this few pics with all the distinguished members of this community! I can't remember exactly when I started this project, but it must have been in the early 2000s. It [...]
