  1. Very nice group of models. You might think about listing them individually to give them & yourself justice.

  2. You’ve got quite the production line going John. Good looking models sure would like to know more about them.

  3. All good stuff – I really like the C-47.

  4. I didn’t think the Hobby Craft / Academy bf-109 kits had separate leading edge slants???


  5. A diverse range of subjects with a consistently high standard of modelling – they look great. I especially like the civilian DC-3 and the twin Mustang.

  6. You’ve certainly been busy, great models, they deserve separate postings.

  7. John, you are a modeling machine!
    Did you use the gunship kit, or modify the C-47 with the paratroops?
    I got to see one of them in action while I was overseas one evening. It was impressive, and scary.
    Great bunch of builds, beautifully done.

  8. John,
    Late comment but nevertheless your work is outstanding. Very impressive group of models. I love the GB.
