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 […]

1/32 Trumpeter Mig-19

by Craig Abrahamson on November 16, 2012 in Aviation -- 4 Comments

Boy, I dunno whatcha did while you were off-line, but those pictures just downloaded at the speed of light! I might even try Firefox on my next post- might work now. This was built a few months back using MM […]

Tamiya’s 1/32nd Zero

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 […]

My 1/32 Republic F-105D Thunderchief – “Alice’s Joy”

by Adam Dormer on November 15, 2012 in Aviation -- 3 Comments

I submit for your consideration my Trumpeter (mostly) 1/32 Republic F-105D Thunderchief. “Alice’s Joy” was Col. Jack Broughton’s ride when he was the Vice Wingie at the 355 TFW at Tahkli, Thailand circa 1967. Having read all of Broughton’s books, […]

1/32nd Trumpeter F-100D

by Craig Abrahamson on November 15, 2012 in Aviation -- 4 Comments

I bought this back when it was all the rage at the Nationals in Virginia Beach a few years ago. Fondled it for a long time before finally attacking the sprues, though. If I were better at photography (and Photoshop) […]

Monogram (Revell Germany) 1/48 He-111H-22

by Dan DeSilva on November 15, 2012 in Aviation -- 11 Comments

Here is my 1/48 Revll Germany He-111H-22. I got it second hand from a good internet model friend in England. I had not really considered doing a doodlebug carrier, until I found out what this kit included. When I saw […]

1/48 Tamiya P-47D

by Rick Wilkes on November 14, 2012 in Aviation -- 5 Comments

This is my latest completion, and second Tamiya Thunderbolt. I didn’t achieve the transparent look on the grey that I was aiming for, but it will have to do..lol The only issues I have with the kit are the oversized […]

Airfix 1/72 Bird Dog

by Jim Watts on November 14, 2012 in Aviation -- 6 Comments

The Airfix Bird dog in the scheme of a NZ owned aircraft ZK-NAM. I replaced the ill fitting cokpit roof clear parts, and removed the horrible ejector pin marks on the tail and wings, but left everything pretty much as […]

1/48th Tamiya F4U Corsair

by Craig Abrahamson on November 14, 2012 in Aviation -- 5 Comments

As with all Tamiya kits, this one practically built itself (which is a GOOD thing, because if left to my own devices, I usually manage to mess sumthin’ up). There were no fit issues, as with any Tamiya example I’ve […]
