Italeri 1:48 Macchi C.205

My second Veltro (Greyhound), in the service of the Aeronautica Nanzionale Repubblica and flown by Ten. Sergio Mazzerelli. 3ª Squadriglia, 1° Gruppo, Campoformido (Udine), Italy, Apr.-Aug. 1944 This is a reboxing of the Hasegawa kit with more decal options and […]

Hasegawa 1:48 Macchi C.205

The aircraft is from 360ª Squadriglia, (155° Gruppo, 51° Stormo), Monserrato Airfield in Sardinia, summer of ’43. As usual, being a Hasegawa kit the build went smoothly up to the installation of the main landing gear. The square mounting pegs […]

HAPPY HOLIDAYS ALL

The first Xmas card, 1843.

Revell 1:48 F-8E MiG Killer

Known as the Fighting Checkmates and as the MiG Killers, with seven confirmed kills and one probable, including both the first and the last F-8 kill. VF-211 was second in MiG kills only to VF-96’s F-4 Phantoms. Not a bad […]

ITALERI 1:48 HARVARD MK.IV

An RCAF kite from the Goldilocks Aerobatic Team based out of RCAF Station Moose Jaw (Sask). The team was formed in 1962 and were designed as a parody of the famous “Golden Hawks” team. In 1964, with the conversion of […]

Hobby Boss 1/48 F4U-7

I built this as a tribute to a fellow modeller who passed away last December, one day short of his 26th birthday. He wanted to build this aircraft as it had an interesting history: serving with the French Aeronavale, one […]

ITALERI 1:48 SPITFIRE Mk. IXc

This was originally going to be the oddball “beer truck” version as shown on the box-top but investigation has led me to believe that this is now a myth at least as depicted by the aircraft shown. I have found […]

Tamiya 1/48 Bf-109E-3

I started building this to be marked with the kit decals but a photo on the web blew me away. This is more of a study in interpreting B&W colors than being correct so this is my take right or […]

Hasegawa 1/48 “Captured” Kawanishi N1K2-J

This was is a great build for an old kit. No filler used at all, even the pesky fuselage/wing join. I used Rising Decals “Dying Sun Pt.III and they worked great. For chipping I first laid down some Tamiya Flat […]
