life long model maker of all subject matter

Vintage Lindberg Model: 1/72 Curtiss BFC-2

This is a real vintage kit I built some time ago. I always love these pre-war Naval aircraft and try to build all the examples produced in a main-stream kit regardless of how old, and vintage it is. I had […]

Project Completed: 1/48 HobbyBoss US Navy F3H-2 Demon

I finally finished my latest workbench project; the F3H-2 Demon in 1/48. If you would like to hear more about my build experience please take a look at my recent build article posted last week, or, on my blog. I […]

1/35 Academy M1A1 Abrams “IRAQI 2003”

I’ve built a good amount of armor over the past few years but never an Abrams. Don’t know why, maybe to common for my tastes. I’m more of a fan of Cold War machines like the M48, M60, and T-55 […]

1/35 AFV M35A1 Quad .50 Vietnam Gun Truck

To be honest I really dont know much about this truck as it was used in Vietnam, but when I saw a picture of it on the box top I just needed to build it. I built this a few […]

Revell 1/144 U-216: Type VIID U-Boat

This is an “olde but goodie” model I built some time ago, maybe over 10 years ago. Once in a while I go into the basement and look at my old, dusty built models put away in storage. These models […]

The Making of A Demon: WIP Hobby Boss 1/48 F3H-2 Demon

This particular model has certain sentimental value to me because it is the last model purchased by my mother prior to her passing. For years now, really since I have been married with kids, I no longer get any fun […]

1/48 Hasagawa Harrier: The VTOL Warrior of the USMC

Always loved the USMC Harrier II version of this famed jet so a few years ago I decided to build my 1st Harrier. I apologize that I cannot say to much about my build experience b/c I built this some […]

1/48 Academy Lockheed T-33A USAF Jet Trainer

Always loved the early jets, especially the F-80/T-33 family of jets from the famed Kelly Johnson’s SKunk Works team and facility. So when a customer requested a T-33 build I was happy to oblige! When I asked the reason he […]

Czech Models 1/48 T-34C Turbo Mentor

Thought I would post something a little different that you dont see posted very often. It is the limited-run Czech Models 1/48 T-34 Primary Navy Trainer. The Turbo-Prop version of the venerable Beechcraft T-34A and B models. The T-34C was […]

1/72 MENG Convair Delta Dart: 101st FIS Cape Cod, MA ANG

In my early teens I was a very dedicated, and active cadet in the Rhode Island Civil Air Patrol (CAP). I had the best time and experiences as part of this very professional organization which is the official auxiliary program […]
