World War II

1/144 SBD Dauntless (Brengun Models)

I seem to have moved away from the larger scales. God knows what I will do with about 45 Wingnut Wings 1/32 kits, but here we are. As my eyesight deteriorates my modelling subjects are shrinking! I thought I'd try a 1/144 subject, so got [...]

It's finally finished!

It's finally finished! Nothing in particular to add except that I followed the details of what I found online especially in reference to the nice article by Dave Hansen ( @davidhansen ) ((link) and (link)). The effect is completely [...]

Review: Magic Factory F4U-1 & F4U-1A Corsair, 1/48. 'A New Line of Plastic Corsairs on the Horizon'

I recently got round to finishing these pair of Corsairs from Magic Factory's new tooled set, this set is a dual-combo build of an F4U-1A and an F4U-2 Nightfighter but with minimal effort the -2 can be reverted to a -1 which is what I've [...]

Mr Goodwrench Goes to WarEduard 1/48 FM-1 Wildcat

My latest attempt at model building is this 1/48 scale Eduard FM-1 Wildcat. Of the six or so different paint schemes, I chose this one representing VC-1 stationed on the USS Block Island (CVE-21) in 1943. On May 29, 1944, Block Island was [...]

Douglas C-47 Dakota Airfix 1/72

This is one of my first builds after restarting this hobby. I hadn’t discovered wheatering-techniques during this build, so will have a look on that the next few months. The paratroopers (Italeri) make it a bit more lively. Living close [...]

ICM 1/72 Ki-21-1a Sally, Thai Bomber

This was an IPMS review build, so I'll post the link here when the review is released. link here soon... ICM is putting out great kits! The Sally is one of my favorite Japanese bombers, and I still have two Revell kits and an MPM in the [...]

Eduard FM-2 Wildcat, 1/48, 'The Wilder Wildcat'

When Eduard released their first F4F-3 Wildcat I bought it straight away and love the model they provided, a great little kit with amazing details and a pain-free good fitting build process. We knew they were planning on doing a whole line [...]

1:35 M19 Tank Transporter & D7 Military Dozer

This build has been a long time in the making. For years I’ve wanted to honor my grandfather’s service during World War II but have been unable to locate an AutoCar heavy truck model which he’s standing by in the photo. I know there [...]

Arma Hobby 1/72 Hurricane MkI Tropical

Arma Hobby, 1/72. It doesn't contain any resin or etch, so it's a little disappointing, compared to the "Expert" variant, but still very enjoyable to build. Once again the fit of all the parts is just about perfect. I know that [...]

Airfix Defiant Mk.I, 1/48. 'The Daytime Daffy'

This 'Daffy' was built during a quick break during training, I didn't have anything in the stash that I thought would be a quick build so I ended up going to the only model shop left in my area and picking this guy up, and then later [...]
