  2. This is a good one, great job!
  3. This week on the A-10 Thunderbolt II I detailed and assembled the cockpit. I completed the details on the instrument panel and the side panels. I decided used a QuickBoost resin ejection seat as the kit seat was very incorrect. I then dug thru my 1/48 figures and found a very good detailed pilot. The pilot was painted to match the pilot used in the simulator. I made the squadron arm patch and helmet logo decals using the artwork from the simulator and painted the helmet red with tiger stripes to match as well. While the pilot was drying, I added some photo etch details to the nose wheel strut
  4. This kit brings back a LOT of memories as I did a few of them in my early teen years. I remember at the time, that I thought it was the best paint job I ever did - most likely with those gloppy Testors enamel paints. đŸ¤ª Anyway this was re-released by Round 2 and is 1:12 scale. Comes with a few sprues of parts and then the deck planking in 2 big sheets. I also comes with a large sheet of decals. Starting right in I gave all the parts a coat of Stynylrez tan primer. There was some flash and the deck and box parts had a slight warp to them, but nothing serious. Things went so
  5. Review Author: Bill Kluge Osprey Publishing Much like its European contemporary France, the Netherlands entered the twentieth century with a considerable empire, a strong naval tradition, and a current navy badly in need of modernization and decisive political direction. Being on friendly terms with Great Britain through much of the 19th century ensured that the far-flung Dutch imperial possessions in the East Indies could count on the protection of the Royal Navy. The Royal Netherlands Navy need on

  7. Review Author: Brian R. Baker Osprey Publishing History: During World War II, after the Germans had invaded France, the Italians decided to get involved, and they took part in the final stages of the German assault. Once things had settled down, the Italians began expanding to the South. They had already occupied parts of Africa, but continued their advances into Greece. The British Royal Air Force had already begun their bombing offensive against the Germans, using Hampdens, Whitleys, and W

  10. I keep wondering where you come up with all these unusual kits & conversions. All very nicely done. Encouraging just to see your work.

  13. Fantastic piece, really like all the details and great job on the figures.
  14. Review Author: George Cully MMP Books Developed from the Potez 63 long-range twin-engine fighter first flown in 1936, the Potez 63.11 reconnaissance aircraft was delivered in prototype form in late 1938. So promising was the design--and so urgent the need--that the French Armee de l'Air ordered 145 examples from the drawing board even before the plane had begun its initial trials. The first production machine was delivered in July 1939, and in that year alone Potez received orders for 1,684 63.11s
  15. Review Author: Ron Bell Greenhill Books Operation Colossus was an airborne commando raid into Italy early in the war to interdict a particular aqueduct vital to the towns in the 'heel' of Italy. The operation is not very well known and this book is a welcome addition to anyone's WWII library as it fills a void not covered in other publications. Author Lawrence Paterson spends a great deal of time at the beginning of the book relating the story of the creation and training of the UK's airborne forces
  16. It’s my sad duty to acknowledge the passing of Jim Pearsall, IPMS#2209, our Historian/Publications Director on this E-Board. View the full article

  18. Totally impressed. Mach 2 and Fonderie Miniatures were some "interesting" kits. Really well done- not sure I would want to sit in that cockpit though đŸ™‚ Dave
  19. Hi Kevin: Interesting kit. Love the backdrop too Dave
  20. Terrible Kids Stuff 75mm miniature I finished, called The Birth of Dracula. Thanks for looking.
  21. Review Author: Blaine Singleton Osprey Publishing In January 1945, the collapse of the German front along the Siegfried Line led to a large-scale dissolution of German combat forces and capability. Pressed hard by Allied forces advancing eastward, German units often found themselves trapped west of the Rhine River. With his eye on history, US Lt. Gen. George S. Patton, Jr. was determined to be the first leader since Napoleon to make an assault crossing of the Rhine. The most logical crossing-place w

  23. René Leduc certainly loved his ramjets. Nice work! Goes to show, those Model Building 101 skills come in handy! Ralph
  24. Review Author: Paul R. Brown Mushroom Model Publications This is a new publication from Mushroom Models Publications. The book opens with a brief description of the operational use of the Mirage III/5 family of aircraft. Like the F-104 Starfighter, the F-4 Phantom and the MiG-21, the Mirage III/5 was widely exported to nations around the world ranging from Argentina to Zaire and has participated in many conflicts over the years, in some cases on both sides of the fight. There is also a note from t
