This is the 1984 Citation X-11 in Light Fern Metallic. It may not be as exciting as others, but it does have a subdued charm all its own!

Well, it’s finally done!  The Light Fern Metallic Citation X-11 that I’ve been working on has finally been completed, and man, is it… subdued!  The Citation X-11 notchback is a weird enough thing to make a kit of, but to make this kit into a 1984 model in such a rare and geeky colour only […]

Farpro Zero (OOB) 001

The Mitsubishi A6M Zero is one of the most famous planes ever. There are tonnes of kits of it, and every year or two it seems like we get a new one, a better one or a bigger one (sometimes, all three!). The Zero’s fame has ensured it will always be kitted somewhere. However, its’ […]

This is the rather interesting box are for the Biber.
"So, Karl, what do you think of your new ride?"
"Well, mein Kapitaen, I think I should have joined the Luftwaffe. At least there, suicide machines don't pretend to be anything else!"

The Kriegsmarine (German Navy) may have been the “poor relation” of the Nazi armed forces, but that didn’t stop it from coming up with its own outlandishly unsafe and ill-advised weaponry! A perfect example of this is the Biber (beaver) midget submarine! Just because it killed more of its own pilots than it did Allied […]

Citation 102

Nowadays, it seems almost every interior is either black or dark grey, or, if you’re lucky, beige. Gone, it seems, are the days of full red, green, blue and even white interiors; at least for everyday people-mover-type cars. That’s why, when I was looking up a colour for my Citation X-11, I wanted to get […]

HighJacker (OOB) 043

Recently, we’ve seen a number of old, valuable and hard-to-find kits being reissued. It’s a golden age again, and Round 2 is leading the charge! Suprisingly, they’ve taken to reissuing a number of the larger, 1/20 kits as well. Surely, the king of this proverbial hill is none other than 1/20 Econoline-based HighJacker, a crazy, […]

The black call letters went easily, as far as making my own decals. The tail bands, though, were very tough. A lot of them died to get this result!

Many of us have relatives, past and present, that have served as inspirations for our modelling exploits. I’m no different. The one plane that I know members of my family have been involved with is the Grunau Baby glider. That’s why I was thrilled to get my hands on the 1/72 AZ Grunau Baby IIb […]

Citation 107

When you “stepped up” to the X-11 trim in the mid ‘80s, you got more than just meaningless decals and a (likely non-functional) trunk lip spoiler; you also got the 2.8L V6 engine! Now, I know in this day and age that a V6 producing a massive 135 hp and a stump-pulling 145 ft.lbs of […]
