I started this hobby a little while ago and am quite taken with it. I originally purchased a few models models from Fiddler's Green and then purchased the magic keys. Anyhoo I will post a few of my efforts. Starting off with the P6E, which has always been one of my favorite.

Here is a Martin B10 that I resized to 1/48. I also grabbed the engine from the Syrus and shrunk it to fit, remade the props (hubs) and since I plan on hanging it I partially retracted the landing gear.

Been doing this less than a year. However, I am a sign painter so I have pretty good fine motor skills ;) and an eye for detail. Also, making a living watching paint dry gives you patience.

The design work on these two models was very good for a novice builder, especially the P6E. If one takes his time it is a straight forward build, as long as you aren't scared by the wheel pants.

The P6E is fantastic. How do you get the colors to come out like that? Great job. wc

Actually the P6E was a mistake. I accidentally printed it out on glossy brochure paper (heavy like cover paper) and thought kewwwwllll. So I built it that way. The brochure paper is a little harder to work with, it doesn't take glue as well.

Excellent work!

If you think glossy brochure paper is hard to work with, don't even think about trying glossy photo paper! :wink:

Splendid work! The Hawk is just awesome. I really like the idea of using the other engine on the B-10. Might have to try that with the B-17/B-29.

OK, here are a couple more for youse guys......

Firstly I have for you pleasure a Lanchester Armored Car. I saw this thing and just loved it. The only modification is I double up on the tire treads.

I think he got caught in a Hun spotlight on this one

This is one of my all time favorite tanks, the Mark IV. On this I doubled the sides so I could cut out the panel that showed the rollers on the bottom (just above the tracks). I used a double thickness on the tracks (back to back) so I could score the laps of the tracks themselves and make each individual on flat. I also cut extra hatch covers to all to the depth, the track tighteners are three layers. There is a black out behind the open drivers ports. I got some cheap Wal Mart craft chain for the beam and put some tarps on for the heck of it. Seems to be rough country on my desk.

and here is the back.

Great job! Just a simple thing like doubling thickness on certain parts adds a ton of detail. Nice work :mrgreen:
