Building, painting and finishing aircraft models of all scales.

My all time favorite build, Old Monogram Devastator.

Yellow Wings decals,fully rescribed and riveted, a lot of scratchbuilding in the interior, then just careful fitting and sanding to get a clean build. Haven’t seen the Great Wall one, but I think these old legacy kits are a lot […]

1/72 F-14A Tomcat

This is the Fujimi kit with Verlinden seats. The kit missile pylons did not fit very well and were exchanged for a set of pylons from the Hasegawa Tomcat. Also, Superscale decals were used to give this Tomcat the markings […]

A truly superb kit! AFV’s F-5E is a joy to build. The only real tedious part was closing up the gun bay. I just took my time and carefully glued all the doors. Fortunately they fit really well. You just […]

Look! Up in the air! Is it a bird? A plane? A flying pig?? Trumpeter 1/72 Gannet

TC does indeed build in eensy-weensy scale, just not that often. This is the Trumpeter 1/72 Gannet with the A2Zee wingfold and bomb bay sets, with Xtradecals. Sadly, about a week after it was completed, one of the new kittens […]
