RFM Panther update

I have been steadily plugging away at the kit, and still am impressed with many facets of it. One thing though that amazes me is small “misses”. For example on the engine deck there are two covers towards the rear. […]

And ye shall seek the grail…….

Well, we all know I have an affection for old Monogram kits, and seek out original issues wherever I can and build them! I have been seeking an affordable B-25H for a few years, not doggedly, but “keeping y eyes […]

A hard fought battle

I’m a believer!!!

Well my beer is anyway! Work on the TBD continues. Lots of scratch building, and some Eduard seat belts. Next close up the fuselage and some sanding.
