Howdy,

I build almost anything that piques my interest. I build what I like, as I like.

1/48 Aviatik Berg D.1

1/48 Sierra Scale Models Aviatik Berg D.1, markings for Frank Linke-Crawford. Lozenge decals by Americal-Gryphon. I did this one a long time ago. My first successful vac form kit (in my opinion). It was also my first attempt at spoke […]

1/48 Eduard Pfalz D-III

The most unlucky kit! 1/48 Eduard Pfalz D-III with decals from the Glencoe kit. While building this one, the control stick broke at least three or four times. The decals shattered and I had to buy another kit to get […]

1/48 Otaki Ki-61 “Tony”

Howdy, Finally finished this one. Markings are for Captain Ichikawa of the 3rd Chutai, 244th Sentai. The 1/48 Otaki Ki-61, started back in the eighties and sitting on the shelf since then. The decals are from the Aeromaster “Eagles of […]

1/48 Hasegawa P-47D Mike Gladych

Finished this one in October last year. 56th Fighter Group, Mike Gladych. 1/48 Hasegawa P-47D with decals by Techmod. Bazooka tubes are from the Tamiya kit, wheels from True Details. I used Tamiya rattlecan British Dark Green and Medium Sea […]

1/25 AMT Model T Farm Truck

Howdy, Made this out of one of the many umpteen reissues of the venerable AMT Model T kit. About the only changes I made was to construct a bench seat and bed from various wooden stir sticks. Weathered with graphite, […]

1/48 Pfalz D-VIII

Howdy, The Pfalz D-VIII is probably my favorite plane of World War One. It’s stubby fuselage was a radical departure from the elegant shark like fighters that the Pfalz factory produced before. This is the Tom’s Modelworks resin kit. Most […]

Revell 1/28 Fokker Dr.1

I’ve always loved these big planes by Revell. This is probably the fifth triplane I’ve built since the sixties. Details include etched brass from Tom’s Modelworks, decals by Americal Gryphon (crosses only, the rest was painted on). Streaking is done […]

1/48 Otaki P-40E converted to P-40N

Thought I’d join in the P-40 fest. One of my older ones, hence only two pics. Converted Otaki P-40E using the Medallion Models resin P-40N set. Decals are War Eagle for P-40M and P-40N. It’s been so long since I […]

1/48 Hasegawa Bf-109F-4B

Howdy, I built this almost out of the box a few years ago. I added etched seatbelts, decals from MSAP for a Me-109F4-B of Frank Liesendahl of JG 2. The ETC 500 bomb rack and bomb are from a Hobbycraft […]
