1/ 72 Airfix Grumman Widgeon

by Joe Caputo on February 26, 2017 in Aviation -- 11 Comments

The “OLD” 1/72 Airfix Widgeon is older than most the people in this group. I found one at a vendor, at the “right” price, and thought I’d give it another go. Lucky for me, there were about 4 decal sheets […]

Late August 1945, as Capt McLaughlin (fictional) views the moonlit Pacific out of the cockpit of his P-38M. The drones of the supercharged Allisons like music in his ears. The war is over, though being in the war zone since […]

by John Healy on February 23, 2017 in Aviation -- 17 Comments

This is the old AMT kit from the mid 1990s. All of the AMT P-40s are still solid kits. Each seperate version also has its issues. The cockpits are weak, but the canopies build up well in the closed position. […]

I started this kit back in November 2016, when it was released. As the Tomcat is a complex machine, so is every model kit of it. I worked on this off and on, fighting boredom and loss of interest for […]
