My son and I got these shots while we had the diorama out for my previous Phantom post. These pre-painted, easy-assembly kits from Squadron Models look quite nice and make […]
I’m realizing lately that a lot of times I seem to be trying to revisit childhood memories with my hobby. I don’t know if that’s terribly healthy, but for whatever it’s worth, here is my Phantom — pun intended?

As my adult model-building hobby era has continued apace, building a new version of this old favorite was on my to-do list, and here I share the results of building Heller’s kit of the “Tante Ju,” imagined on a snowy airstrip.
This is the diorama inspired by my completion of early-war French tanks and a couple of new farmhouses…
Once I had broken through my reluctance with these kits, I found them rather enjoyable to build.
