1/48 Monogram Do-335

Another old Monogram kit, with an option to build the two-seater. While it shows it’s age, it still holds up pretty good, as do most of the older kits, with a little work. As I dip into the stash, I […]

1/48 AA FBC-1 (“Soaring Flying The Leopard”)

This is a BIG aircraft, and a very basic, inexpensive kit of a Chinese fighter in demonstration team colors. Everything about this kit is minimal, including detail and decals, but the overall size is impressive, and it looks “bright” on […]

Ted Taylor RIP

I just heard this morning that UK “modelling legend” Ted Taylor passed away yesterday of the crime of growing old enough to do so. (We’re all headed toward that “guilty” verdict) I only knew him the way I know most […]

F3F-2 encore – F3F-2 of VF-6

Since everyone liked the Marine F3F-2, here’s a Navy F3F-2 of Fighting 6 aboard USS Enterprise. This is a model of the airplane that Fred MacMurray’s character “crashed” during the high altitude test in “Dive Bomber.” Again, done OOB with […]

Tamiya, 1:48 Scale Bristol Beaufighter Mk-VI

Another great kit by Tamiya, so what else can I say. Fit was spot on and other than the need of some extra detail in the respective cockpits, the kit is awesome. I only say that because for some it’s […]

Hasegawa, 1:48 Scale, Kawanishi N1K1-Ja, ‘Shinden’ (George)

More work on the “Cave”

Small room, but feel blessed to have a space, not sure about the other walls, but these I like and I am just about ready to start gluing and painting again! Not sure where to hang my flight jacket, I […]

War of the Worlds Classic Illustrated Edition

“Across the gulf of space…intellects vast and cool and unsympathetic regarded this earth with envious eyes, and slowly and surely they drew their plans against us”… From H.G.Wells “War of the Worlds” novel I read those words some 50 years […]

F4U-4 of VF-32, Flown by Lt. Frank J. Cronin USN, 1950

I first saw a mention of Lt Frank Cronin on page 24 of the Osprey book “F4U Corsair Units of the Korean War”. Considering we had the same name I sought to try to locate him to say hello. I […]
