Seats please….

by Rob Anderson on November 13, 2017 in Uncategorized -- 5 Comments

Continuing with my Devastator, it became apparent that the seats were not going to cut it. They are actually ok, very good for the era, but I chose to scratch build the pilots and radio operators seats, I’m still deciding […]

Next up an old friend The Monogram TBD

I built this kit as a teen, my late brother was always good about getting me a kit for my birthday and I still remember getting this one when it was the hot new Monogram pressing. A while back I […]

Autumn Mist

So here he is, Verlinden’s 120mm SS Trooper in the Ardennes. As I said in my build article I chose to do this guy different than was intended. He is in the M44 Camouflage uniform in Dot pattern on the […]

Figures, I’d start a new project quickly…..

Ok another bad pun from Rob! This is one of Verlinden’s excellent 120mm SS figures, this one being a fellow from the Ardennes counter offensive. He wears the M44 field jacket and late war boots with leggings. Most all of […]

Dagger!

Monogram’s venerable F-102 Delta Dagger. I was able to pick up an original boxing from my local hobby shop and the fit was actually quite good. A few spots were the canopy fit and missile bay door fit if you […]

I always like to share what I am starting in on next, so here it is. This will be my 3rd Monogram kit in a row! I picked up this original issue F-102 at Skyway Hobbies in Seattle. Great shape, […]

Crossing the finish line….

Well, here she is, Monogram’s classic “Lil Coffin”. The original was designed by Dave Stuckey, and was an award winner at the 1963 Oakland custom car show. According to Thomas Graham’s history of the company, Monogram’s Roger Harney was admiring […]

Red Baron is done!

by Rob Anderson on June 26, 2017 in Uncategorized -- 9 Comments

An enjoyable build! Almost decided not to make the little Tri-plane, but decided what the heck. The body of the car is Tamiya flat red coated in multiple coats of Tamiya clear red. The chrome was mostly all re-done with […]

Next up, back to 1968………..

Well, I think I probably built this kit about 69-70, second run that had the Tri Plane in it. The first issue did not include it, and modelers especially the target age of 8-12 year old boys, wrote in to […]

B-17 Done!

Well here she is, mostly out of the box, I did use a squadron main canopy, Eduard ignition harnesses, and a Cheyenne tail turret from the Monogram Pro Modeler kit, graciously donated to me by a Hyperscaler. I did not […]
