1/35 Tamiya M60A1 USMC MBT with Reactive Armor: Desert Warrior

The M60 series although outdated is still my favorite tank of all time. I think it just looks like a MBT and to me represents an outstanding war machine of the cold-war era. It has that heavy, rough, and tough […]

Norwegian Army NM-116 BAttle Tank: Highly Upgraded & Modified M24

1/35 AFV NM116 Norwegian Battle Tank. This tank is essentially the venerable Korean war M24 Chaffee which were provided to the Norwegian army. They then greatly updated and modified it to meet their needs renaming it the NM116. I saw […]

1/350th Trumpeter USS Massachusetts: A Childhood Memory

The battleship USS Massachusetts is currently moored as a museum ship in Fall River, MA. It has been there since the 1960s. I grew up about 20mins away so as a young child this was my first look at a […]

1/48 Monogram Pro-Modeler Vought F4U-5N Corsair (Hasegawa Mold)

I just cannot build enough F4U’s, especially the later version models such as this “-5N”. This particular model was sitting in my stash for over 10 years. I had passed it over many times because it was just a “Monogram” […]

1/35 Dragon Pz.Kpfw.VI Ausf.E Tiger I Mid -Production (DRA 6866)

This is my 1st 1/35 Tiger Tank build. It is a Dragon molding from their latest series of Tiger’s released #6866. The Box title is the “1/35 Pz.Kpfw.VI Ausf.E Tiger I Mid Production Remote Controller mit Borgward Ausf.A Heavy Demolition […]

1/48 Two-Bobs T-2C: The NATC Jet Pipeline Basic Trainer

I am a huge fan of Naval Aviation training aircraft such as the T-28, T-34C, TA-4J, T-45, etc. IMHO these aircraft were largely ignored by the model companies for many, many years with some OK releases throughout the years but […]

Mark 48: Torpedo in the Water!

I have been involved in consignment builds for a long time now. I tell my customers I will build them anything from Autos to Planes, as long as I can find it in kit form. One customer who had asked […]

Grumman Cat: The 1/48 Trumpeter Grumman F9F-3 Panther

Few weeks ago I watched an old, favorite movie. Bridges of Toko-Ri. Just loved those Navy F9F-3 Panthers. So I had to build one and realized I still had one in my stash. Upon opening the box of my HobbyCraft/Trumpeter […]

1/25 Richard Petty Short-Track Dodge Dart NASCAR Kit-Car

I grew up near a NASCAR short-track called “Seekonk Speedway”. As a kid and an adult I loved the look of these short-track cars. But as a kid I struggled with getting the model cars to look like the real […]

1/35 Takom Chieftain Mk.11 Main Battle Tank

This is the 1st Takom model I have built and was excited to give it a go. At the time of purchase it was a brand new release for them. I think they have covered most of the versions of […]
