Hobbycraft 1/48 P-40 L/M

by Clark Cook on April 4, 2016 in Aviation -- 20 Comments

Again this was supposed to be a quick out of the box build but ended up with me spending a lot of time on the model. First of all, I “canvassed in” the wheel wells using coffee filter paper. Then […]


1/200 Dragon C-141B

An Old School Build

by Clark Cook on August 10, 2014 in Aviation -- 9 Comments
