Well, after 5 months of working on this thing, I finally finished it. This is really a great kit.. The instructions are terrible, but it was still a pleasure to build. I used Mr Paint paints for everything except for […]

Abandoned Su-15 (1/48 Trumpeter Su-15 Flagon-A)

by George Johnson on July 28, 2016 in Aviation -- 11 Comments

I started this model a while back and posted a few work-in-progress articles about the build. The only after-markey I used was a photo-etch seat belt from another model. You can’t really see it through the stained, cracked, and weathered […]

1/48 Trumpeter Mig-23

So I have to say that I think I finished the 1/48 Trumpeter Mig-23. I’m pretty happy with it. I touched up a few things, added a little Mig European soil weathering pigment and attached the missiles. This was a […]

1/35 Czech Air Force Mi-24 Attack Helicopter

by George Johnson on January 1, 2016 in Aviation -- 14 Comments

I finally finished this thing after four months of working on it almost every night. I used several after-market sets including PE by Eduard and a resin interior kit by Verlinden. In the end, I only used parts of each […]

by George Johnson on November 15, 2015 in Aviation -- 11 Comments

This is one of those models that I always wanted to build. I found the 1/100th scale Tamiya Orbiter model at a hobby shop in Florida. I ran into the 747 a couple of months later and picked it up […]
