I have a Sufa coming to convert into a Chilean F-16D Peace Puma, but I’m a little short on decals. I tried to find the old 1/72 TwoBobs set for the Peace Puma, but couldn’t find one anywhere. I did […]

My last post of 2017, and yes it’s another of Tom’s P-40’s from his on going collection. This is the first Hasegawa P-40 I’ve completed and it’s really a sweet little kit. Went together very well, and no putty or […]

by Frederick J Seitz III on December 24, 2017 in Aviation -- 11 Comments

Finally finished this Hasegawa 1:48 scale A6M2b, Type 21, Model 0. I found the overall build to be decent. Great in some spots and a somewhat, pain in the arse in others. While detail in the cockpit, engine and wheel […]

Probably the fewest completions in a long time, but then there were the major completions of “Pacific Thunder” and the upcoming “Tidal Wave,” as well as another project not to be spoken of yet, so I had good excuses. 1/72 […]
