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 […]

Citation 002

For the most part, the Citation notchback is not one of those cars people remember fondly, if at all. Most people opted for the hatchback, preferring its econoboxishly-utilitarian nature with a hint of sportiness to the clearly stuffy notchback. Thus, when it came time for people with a yearning for “high performance” to step up […]

This is after flat and satin coating. You can see the "white" lines still show up, but are far more subtle on the final product!

Despite the ending of the Cold War, the Royal Navy still has a need for a submarine to go out and hunt/kill enemy subs. To satisfy this requirement, the Astute class of boats was developed. Despite their newness, we in the modelling world have been treated with what seems to be a fairly accurate replica […]
