Revell 1/48 MiG-25P Foxbat…

by Robert Bausch on August 18, 2014 in Aviation -- 10 Comments

I have always been fascinated with the MiG-25, as much as I am with the SR-71. The Blackbird is the faster aircraft, but according to my info, the Foxbat has flown to a higher altitude, over 123,000 feet (37,650 metres), […]


Monogram 1/48 F-8E Crusader…

by Robert Bausch on July 25, 2014 in Aviation -- 22 Comments

The Vought F-8 Crusader has always been a favorite of mine. It has to me some of the same classic look as the Hawker Hunter does. And it was one of the greatest Navy fighters ever, a fitting jet descendant […]


Hasegawa 1/32 Focke-Wulf FW 190A-7…

by Robert Bausch on July 20, 2014 in Aviation -- 13 Comments

This is the old original Hasegawa 1/32 FW 190A of many years ago, but I decided to post it in spite of its age. I seem to have read that it is still considered a pretty good kit, not completely […]


Monogram 1/48 Hawker Hurricane IIa…

by Robert Bausch on July 15, 2014 in Aviation -- 15 Comments

Here is another of my old Monogram 1/48 kits from way back, the Hawker Hurricane (by the way, you’ll be happy to know I’m running out of these!). I put a bit more work into this one than I did […]


Something about the P-38…

by Robert Bausch on July 11, 2014 in Aviation -- 13 Comments

The P-38 will always be a special airplane for me. I grew up in San Gabriel, CA from 1939 to 1947, all during WWII. Ages 1 to 8, a very formative time in a young person’s life and mind. We […]


Monogram 1/48 Focke Wulf 190A-2…

by Robert Bausch on July 10, 2014 in Aviation -- 18 Comments

This is a model I built quite some time ago, but I thought I would throw it into the iModeler brewing pot in case it might interest a couple of folks. But, it is not a P-40! It’s from the […]


Academy 1/48 Hawker Hunter F.6…

by Robert Bausch on July 2, 2014 in Aviation -- 29 Comments

I am a big fan of Sir Sydney Camm’s Hawker fighter designs, from Kingston on Thames, especially the Typhoon, Tempest and Hunter. The Hunter has always been one of my most favorite aircraft, for many, many years. Aircraft shapes don’t […]


Revell 1/32 Messerschmitt Bf 109 G-2, Finnish Air Force…

by Robert Bausch on June 19, 2014 in Aviation -- 16 Comments

When I saw Rob Anderson’s May 24 posting of the old Revell box art for their 1/32 Bf 109 G “Gustav”, I knew I had to take a look at the model I built from that kit, with the thought […]


The Tale of Two Javelins…

by Robert Bausch on June 12, 2014 in Aviation -- 12 Comments

Here are a couple of 1/72 Gloster Javelin models that I made quite a few years ago. The Javelin has always appealed to me with its unusual shape of delta wing on a broad fuselage, and a second, smaller delta […]


Monogram 1/48 Canadair Sabre Mk. 4…

by Robert Bausch on June 10, 2014 in Aviation -- 14 Comments

I started this kit many years ago, but just finished it in the last year or so. I don’t think I originally intended to do it as an RAF machine, but I really like the classy RAF camo and squadron […]
