Building, painting and finishing aircraft models of all scales.

Hasegawa 1/48 Ju-87B-2 Stuka N. Afrika

This is a kit I built about 15 years ago, and has been languishing on the shelf ever since. One of the early builds with no WIP . Also suffered some damage and lost pieces on a move a few […]

Hasegawa 1/48 Fw-190A-3

In the fall of 1941, just as the RAF was beginning to get a handle on dealing with the Messerschmitt Bf-109F in its “Non-Stop Offensive” (called by the Germans with good reason “The Nonsense Offensive”), a new player arrived on […]

Troublesome Hellcat

Hi Folks: just finished the 1/72 Dragon F6F-3. I wanted to do the wing-fold for some time. The carrier deck is from Verlinden. However, at least with this kit, or my patience, I found the many parts fiddilly and the […]

Ansaldo A.1 Ballila – Progress 2

Tiger F-5E Swiss Air Force J-3001

From 1973 a systematic analysis of the aircraft market and evaluation of several types took place. At an early stage, the Federal Council decided to focus the evaluation on one aircraft, the Tiger F-5E. After thorough testing, the Federal Council […]

Battle of Kasserine Pass Group Build: 1/48 Eduard P-39L Airacobra

My last last contribution to this group build. Thanks again to David Thomas for stating this GB, it’s been a lot of fun and the selections presented here by fellow iModelers have been truly inspiring. Great historical narratives and some […]

North American X-15 A2 in 1:48, Special Hobby

Dear Modeling Friends, enclosed a few pics from my recently finished project, the X-15 Rocket Plane No. 66671 from Special Hobby. Building this (resin) kit was a nightmare, but after the paint-job and applied Decals I was convinced that this […]
