    1/48 Revell P-47N Review/Preview

    Back on aircraft this week with a look at another Revell kit with their rendition of the P-47N Thunderbolt in 1/48th scale.
  3. Switching gear this week and taking a look at another armor kit, with Hobby Boss' 1/48th scale Pz.Kpfw KV-1. This week is also the first week that we will be doing videos in 4K, which should hopefully help improve the ability to see detail on kit parts.

    1/48 Revell PT-17 Stearman Full Build

    OK so here is part 2, showing all the work done on the cockpit and internal area. Couple things to note. This was the first time I have done any large scale video project, so I openly admit the length has everything to do with my inexperience and lack of skill in editing combined with this project being alot larger in scale and scope then I initially though. As such treating this as a learning experience and will try to keep the length down in the next part. At the moment I am waiting to get some feedback on this one before I start editing the next part to get an idea of where I need to improve and if I should split it into 2 parts.

    1/48 Revell PT-17 Stearman Full Build

    I ended up using fishing line for the rigging, which I plan to show in part 3 tentatively. After what all happened working on part 2 I am debating splitting the next part up.

    1/72 Jo-Han F4U-1 Corsair Review/Preview

    This is a big reason why I do these videos, as it creates these sorts of discussions on the history of model building. Also because some, but not all, of these older models still can hold up today. They may need varying degrees of TLC and other work, but they still will build up to pretty decent models.

    1/48 Revell PT-17 Stearman Full Build

    Been waiting a little while to post this, but since the first full part is now out I feel comfortable posting this. So this is the first part in a series of videos I am doing on the Stearman that I built for this years contest. I had originally planned to release this monthly following the first full part, which I will post tomorrow, but because of the large time investment of editing all of the footage these will instead be coming out bi-monthly. So look forward to it.

  10. Late getting this posted due to being on vacation last week, but taking a look at one of the earliest rockets to be used by the United States in the very early days of the space race with Glencoe Model's Jupiter C kit in 1/48th scale.

    1/48 Revell PT-17 Stearman Review/Preview

    Actually I already have built it, and was in the next few days going to start posting the build videos for it. Don't know if it still qualifies for the group build, and I also can not get more photos of it as its now in a museum, my IPMS chapter did a contest and the wining Stearman kit got you a ride in one (N3188 seriously go look up the tail number 😄 ) and to have the kit go in a museum.

  13. Looking at a very different kit this week from what I normaly look at with Max Factory's 1/20th scale Katyusha and Nonna figure from the series Girls und Panzer.
