Hasegawa 1/72 Kfir C-2 – Ecuador

by Greg Kittinger on November 21, 2016 in Aviation -- 15 Comments

Back when I first got into modeling (mid-80’s), one of the first kits I built was the Testor Kfir as an F-21 Navy aggressor. I’ve always loved the lines of the Mirage family of delta aircraft, especially the modified versions […]

Hasegawa 1/72 RF-101C Voodoo

by Greg Kittinger on October 18, 2016 in Aviation -- 27 Comments

Started this over two years ago. Got a bit distracted trying to decide what to do with all the raised panel lines that got obliterated by sanding down the seams, and other builds seemed like more fun! In the end, […]

ACE 1/72 P-47D Thunderbolt

by Greg Kittinger on September 21, 2016 in Aviation -- 17 Comments

A few months ago, I was thinking I wanted to build my first t-bolt, and knew I had 3 in the stash – a Tamiya D, a Revell razorback, and one other kit I couldn’t remember. My eye landed on […]

Thanks to all who participated! There was great conversation – swapping of warnings, tips and tricks in the groups area, along with some cajoling and support along the way! Below are the pics of those who made the deadline, and […]

1/72 Testors/Italeri RF-4E Luftwaffe in Norm 72 scheme

by Greg Kittinger on August 14, 2016 in Aviation -- 19 Comments

This Recce Phantom is my group build contribution. Relatively fun kit to put together. There were no details in the cockpit, so I did a bit of scratch building to add a center bulkhead, beef up the instrument panels to […]

Emhar F3H-2M Demon 1/72

by Greg Kittinger on July 19, 2016 in Aviation -- 10 Comments

As I was responding to Tom Clever’s post today of his older Demon build, I decided to post my 1/72 rendition of the Demon. I’ve built 2 Emhar kits, and only buy/build them because they are generally the only option […]

Hasegawa 1/72 P-40N – Desert Scheme

by Greg Kittinger on July 13, 2016 in Aviation -- 15 Comments

A friend of mine bought me this kit so that the two of us could both build P-40N’s (although his was 32 scale). I liked a couple of the Pacific Theater schemes that came in the box – especially the […]

TMF 2016 Show Part 2 (Tulsa Modeler’s Forum)

by Greg Kittinger on April 22, 2016 in Show Reports -- 8 Comments

I wanted to post a few more pics from our show that another photographer sent to me. Next year I promise we’ll get more of what was on the tables! We missed a lot of photos this time around…

1/72 Trumpeter JH-7A Flying Leopard

by Greg Kittinger on March 21, 2016 in Aviation -- 7 Comments

This was an OOB build – only modifications were to add pilots and drill out the tail end of the missiles. I was disappointed in the paint work – used Vallejo Light Ghost Grey but took 3 coats to cover, […]

Aircraft Group Build – Survey Says: Phantoms!

by Greg Kittinger on February 8, 2016 in Aviation -- 39 Comments

I’ve tabulated the survey results. The top two contenders for the build were the F-4 Phantom and the WWII Japanese fighter/interceptor. The Phantom received one more 1st rank vote, but double the 2nd rank votes, so I’ll call that a […]
