Ok everyone, I was sitting around watching it rain and looking at my pile of projects, all which have some great nose art to them so I decided to post and see if there would be any interest in a […]

McDonnell F-15 Eagle – Academy 1/144

First build of the year, which was completely accidental. While cleaning out a cabinet in the garage, I came across this kit under a pile of old magazines. I have no idea where it came from or why I had […]

As long as we’re talking about jacks….

Here’s one of 747-100’s on jacks for a retraction check at the Los Angeles maintenance base just before we retired the Whales in 1999. These normally weren’t done outside unless the hangars were full, which was probably the case here. […]

It was a busy year for me, especially with family and work. Even so, I managed to get three models done, all in 1/48. The Pogo was a what if that started out to be a scale project and turned […]
