This post is more a test of Firefox than anything else. My very first post (the Z-M Skyraider) was done through Firefox – my usual browser). Subsequent articles were posted via Safari because the other one stopped working [well, maybe […]

Trumpeter 1/32nd F-105G “Wild Weasel”

by Craig Abrahamson on November 18, 2012 in Aviation -- 1 Comment

BIG model….25″ nose-to-tail – 12″ wingspan. Painted, marked and loaded to my own likes (which means it ain’t necessarily “accurate”). Not an ideal photo background, but uncluttered nonetheless – except for those fishin’ lines (gotta get that Photoshop thing down). […]

This is the Revell (Hasegawa) Gates Learjet in 1/48 scale. Despite its age the kit is really nice, well ok you’ll have to live with the raised panel lines. This is my only airliner/bizjet so far and I built is […]

1/48 Hasegawa F6F-5P conversion

by Dan DeSilva on November 16, 2012 in Aviation -- 8 Comments

I wanted to do a Hellcat in these markings ever since I saw the photo in a Hellcat reference, the Model Graphics book on the Hellcat. When I found out that Superscale put decals out for one of these VF-84 […]

by Craig Abrahamson on November 16, 2012 in Aviation -- 1 Comment

When I finally decided to build this fine example of the famed Japanese Zero, I was hoping against all odds I wouldn’t somehow mess it up. Rather than paint the aircraft that IJN Green color that everybody was using (it […]

Lindberg 1/200 Snap Fit Space Shuttle..

by Jim Watts on November 15, 2012 in Aviation -- 4 Comments

Yes another Lindberg, a kit that took a bit of work, as it’s got the boosters moulded to the external tank, but a bit of sawing, filling, refining and scratch-building and she came close enough for me. I know the […]
