Hasegawa 1/72 CV-22B Osprey

With the four previous models now out of the way, I’ve got the Hasegawa CV-22B back on the bench as this is another I want finished. Because the USAF kit is out of production and fetching stupid prices I bought a MV-22 Osprey that WAS available at a decent price, the only problem is theContinue reading “Hasegawa 1/72 CV-22B Osprey”

Adventures in Plastic 1/72 Mole

That’s number four finished! Adventures in Plastic/ Aoshima’s Mole from Thunderbirds; It’s near enough to the finish on the studio models from the original TV series so it will do for me. The only thing is one of curved pieces on the right of the framework has broke for some unexplained reason; I have aContinue reading “Adventures in Plastic 1/72 Mole”

Revell/ Matchbox 1/72 Dornier Do28D-2

That’s number three finished! Yet another model I’m not entirely happy with as the decals look awful close up and yet again I had issues with the paint leaving a gritty finish in places, mainly down to the paint drying too fast as it hit the model due to the high temperatures we had inContinue reading “Revell/ Matchbox 1/72 Dornier Do28D-2”

Hasegawa 1/72 F-104G

That’s another off the bench; Not a bad finish considering the kit was rescued from the Shelf of Doom but I have been punished on this one as I didn’t achieve a good enough gloss finish, which means air has been trapped underneath some decals and resulted in them ‘silvering’ so that’s as far asContinue reading “Hasegawa 1/72 F-104G”

ICM 1/48 O-2A Skymaster (late production)

That’s a wrap for this one and the 2nd part of the article detailing the finish will appear on The Modelling News soon Not a bad kit really but I’m not that happy with the overall finish as there are specks of dust on the insides of the cabin glazing and I had an issueContinue reading “ICM 1/48 O-2A Skymaster (late production)”

Way back when….

Once upon a time in the modelling world, some aircraft that you quite liked but were not mainstream subjects such as the Me109 or Spitfire were only available as a vac-form (vacuum-formed). Basically the aircraft shape was made from scratch, split into various bits then a sheet of thick plastic sheet was placed over theContinue reading “Way back when….”
