Eduard P-39N Airacobra, 1/48. 'Lend-lease Ace Maker'.
I got this kit to be a bit of a quicker build and recover some mojo, and it's generally been a fun build. Whilst the kit is for American P-39Qs, the Eduard set comes with the parts for any of the versions. Foxbot and Montex was used to [...]
Recent work——Hanomag ss100
I spent a few days for modeling this kit especially these PE detail parts. Then waiting for a clear day for the paint. And last week finally finished the weathering works. I just shared all the photos during my processing. Hope you guys [...]
USS Gearing, Dragon 1/350
Here is my build of Dragon's USS Gearing, lead ship of the US Navy's ultimate WWII destroyer class. This is the excellent kit from Dragon, which comes with extensive photoetch (but, surprisingly, no railing!). Built it out of the box apart [...]
Messerschmitt Me 109G-6
Hello fellow modelers! I would like to present you a model of the German WWII fighter Messerschmitt Me 109G-6. It is a first paper model of airplane since my last production 35 year ago 🙂
Eduard Bf 109E-4, 1/48. 'Emil Over Britain'.
With two Bf 109 kits, I knew one would have to have the classic yellow nose. I also wanted to try the dreaded mottling that made Luftwaffe aircraft so off-putting. Two birds, one stone I thought. This Bf 109E-4 is supposed WNr. 3709, [...]
Eduard Bf 109E-1, 1/48. 'Emil Over France'
I added Eduard's dual-combo 'Adlerangriff' to the stash at the beginning of last year but put off doing it until a few months ago due to the dreaded mottling, which I hadn't tried. I had a few chip aways at the kit in the past, doing the [...]
Eduard A6M2 Type 0, Model 21, 1/48. 'Saburō Sakai's Longest Mission'.
On August 7th 1942, Ace Pilot Saburō Sakai underwent his most legendary mission and would narrowly survive being shot in the head by the rear gunner of a Dauntless dive bomber. Escorting Japanese bombers to Guadalcanal, Sakai first [...]
Tamiya F4U-1A, 1/48. Silver Sally.
This is a build I started a few months ago as a side project and have slowly got round to finishing this last week. When I was researching for a previous Corsair build I came across this very unique one off scheme and knew I had to add it [...]
Tamiya P-47D-30-RE, 'The Bubbletop over Asia'
After a couple of single builds I wanted to get back to the dual combo way of building kits, and so what better than a bubbletop to go along with the razorback P-47? Having completed a bare-metal Mustang just before the Thunderbolts I [...]
