Modeling by Frederick J Seitz III

Hasegawa 1:48 Scale, Nakajima B5N2, Type 97, Model 3, Carrier Attack Plane.

Another kit that was really a great time building. Typical Hasegawa quality product, and one of their fairly new Japanese subject line. I think these are a labor of love and a source of nation pride! Even the horrible decals […]

Hobby Boss, 1:48 Scale, IAR-80, Romanian Air Force

Hey Folks! Over the last couple weeks, I have been pretty busy building…actually got a few finished in time for the IPMS/USA Region One Show and Contest. I found that, overall, this was a decent little model kit. It went […]

Tamiya, 1:48 scale F4F-4 “Wildcat”

Another kit I finished this weekend… I’m sure we all have built this model at one time or another, maybe even more than once as in my case. So, I will not go through the kit details, but suffice to […]

1:48 Scale, Fine Molds A5M4, Type 96 Carrier Fighter, “Claude”

A beautiful little model by Fine Molds, is this A5M4 Type 96, in 1:48 scale. It has very nice detail in the cockpit and engine, and the surface detail on the exterior is excellent, especially on the wings. The model […]

Nichimo 1:48 Scale, Nakajima Ki-431c, “Hayabusa” (Oscar)

by Frederick J Seitz III on January 24, 2017 in Aviation -- 19 Comments

Another “Oldie but Goodie”, Nichimo’s “Oscar” is one of the best, if not THE best model of this important Japanese fighter, in any scale. But that’s my opinion. Model went together beautifully, with very little needed attention to seams. It […]

Accurate Miniatures SB2U-3 “Vindicator”

by Frederick J Seitz III on January 22, 2017 in Aviation -- 18 Comments

This is Accurate Miniatures 1:48 scale Vought SB2U-3, “Vindicator”. I had built this kit a few year ago, also when IT first came out. I had gotten a kit that had the original flaw in the rear fuselage, where there […]

Accurate Miniatures SBD-3, “Dauntless”

by Frederick J Seitz III on January 22, 2017 in Aviation -- 14 Comments

Hey Folks! This is a 1:48 scale, Accurate Miniatures SBD-3, “Dauntless”, that I built many years back. If I recall, it was right around the time the kit was released. This was a while back so bear with me. I […]

Happy New Year, Everybody! Starting 2017 by finishing stalled 2016 projects.

by Frederick J Seitz III on January 2, 2017 in Aviation -- 15 Comments

Hey Folks, I’m going to start 2017, by finishing up a couple projects that I had begun, in 2016. Last part of the year was hectic, and time at the bench was just not an option. However, as the new […]

Hello Folks, Expanding on a theme by Tom Cleaver ,Here are the kits I managed to complete over the past year. While not as many as I had hoped, it’s what I had time to tackle, in between life’s little […]

WILDCATS, WILDCATS and MORE WILDCATS

by Frederick J Seitz III on December 10, 2016 in Aviation -- 19 Comments

Here are a few of the F4F’s that I’ve built over the years. As one might guess, Grumman’s F4F is one of my favorite fighter aircraft, (Followed close by the P-40 and P-47). There is one 1:32 scale Trumpeter, two […]
