Tamiya A6M5, 1/48. The Eternal Zero.

The most iconic Japanese aircraft is easily the Mitsubishi A6M, and Tamiya's most recent tooling from 2008 absolutely does justice to such a plane. Before going any further this kit can be summed up as 'absolutely recommended', or 'one of the [...]

Hasegawa N1K2-J ‘George’, 1/48. The Violet Lightning.

Seeing certain aircraft sometimes brings back a memory, for me the N1K2 reminds me of playing Combat Flight Simulator 2 when I was 8 years old, I always thought of it as the 'fat Japanese plane with the big guns and the cool cockpit'. Several[...]

Eduard Tempest Mk.V Dual Combo, 1/48.

Recently I've decided to improve my photography and buy a lightbox, today it arrived! So as I showcase my previous builds this is the first one with some shiny now photos. Eduard's Tempest Mk.V... An interesting kit to say the least, this c[...]

P-38G Lightning, 1/48, Tamiya. ‘Miss Virginia’

My first of the Operation Vengeance trio in 1/48 was this Lightning, an amazing kit and probably the best engineered model I've made to date. There isn't a lot of negatives to say about this kit, in fact whilst I completed this model in Septe[...]

HobbyBoss F4U-4 Corsair, 1/48. A Small Build Review of Sorts.

The Hobbyboss kit is proof that newer isn't necessarily better, but as an old Hasegawa F4U-4 was the first model I built upon returning to the hobby I felt that 3 years later it was time to have a stab at another F4U-4. In fact, I decided to bui[...]

La La Lavochkin Land! 1/48 Zvezda La-5s

I get inspired by the planes I fly in flight simulators. Go figure. I've flown the LaGG-3 in IL2-GB and hated every minute of it. Once I stepped up to the La-5 I had something approaching the same revelatory moment pilots had when they traded i[...]

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[...]
