Finland Air Force . Hawker Hurricane Mk.I . Tamiya . 1/48

Hello Everyone, The Tamiya Hawker Hurricane Mk.I is a Superb kit, although its an Italeri rebox. The kit is a simple straight forward build and its a New tooling for the Hurricane in 1/48 scale. The detail is great out of the box for this sc[...]

Lightning White 33

Here's my take on Tamiya's 1/48 scale P-38 Lightning model. The kit gives you the choice of building either Miss Virginia (P-38 G) or White 33 (P-38F). Despite the historical significance of Miss Virginia and the mission to shoot-down Admiral Ya[...]

Erosion Never Sleeps – Bristol Beaufighter Nightfighter

After looking at my Beaufighter for five months, I decided that it needed a little roughing-up. So I broke-out the thinner, some swabs, and a bottle of Model Master chrome silver paint and went to town. Along the way, I managed to break the radi[...]

Tamiya 1/72 Corsair

Hi everyone! This time I wanted to make another Corsair but with less weathering. I chose the Tamiya 1/72 one. I spent a while building this last Saturday since I had an online speech and debate tournament. At first, they tried making the tourna[...]

Mitsubishi A6M3 Zero Type 22 – IJN 251 Kokutai – Hiroyoshi Nishizawa – Spring 1943

Bonjour dear iModelers, After my previous Corsair, it was logical to follow with a Zero fighter. I had on stock the Hasegawa A6M3 Type 22 model (JT17) for more than 20 years, therefore it was time to take care of it. I decided to make a blue/g[...]

AVRO Lancaster B.III – Airfix 1/72nd

I've tried to improved the simple surface detail by adding some missing panel lines and rivets. I’ve replaced the plastic wheels with the resin set from Eduard and I’ve used AK real colour lacquer RAF Dark Green and RAF Dark Earth as well as som[...]

M4A1 Sherman

I got this model for a model display I was going to have with my friends. I really enjoyed building it. The Sherman is one of my favorite tanks. This is the other model I have for VJ Day.

Motor Torpedo Boat PT-109

I received this model a while ago as a gift. It was the first model of that company I ever got. It was also one of the first models I got. I really enjoyed putting it together. This is one of two models I got for VJ Day.

Macchi C.202 Folgore – 21° Gruppo Autonomo C.T. – 1943

Bonjour dear iModelers, I wanted to make a "full options" model, with difficult camouflage, just to test my possibilities. My choice fell on the MC.202 Folgore d'Hasegawa, re-boxed by Eduard in 2016 in Limited Edition (#1132), i.e. with some re[...]

1/700 Fuyuzuki (Akizuki Type)

Aoshima 1/700 Yoizuki kit with the Five Star Fuyuzuki upgrade kit: The upgrade kit is essential for this build as the original kit is pretty basic. I also added aftermarket rope reels and built the wood base and acrylic case myself. For this bu[...]
