Here are some pics of my Wingnut Wings Fokker E.III. This was built out of the box except for the seatbelts (HGW Laser Cut) and Rigging (Gaspatch turnbuckles). Since the early engines, especially the rotaries, spewed oil all over the [...]
This is the 1/48 Monogram kit, purchased as the -10A post-WWII Rescue version. I thought a colourful scheme of internediate blue-over-white finishes, with bright red and yellow bands, would make a big impression as a scheme. When I opened the [...]
The Falcon Seahawk first came out in around 1988-89. This was done in 2003, using decals scaled up on an ALPS printer by a friend to do the seabird squadron marking of 899 Squadron with other decals from the dungeon. [...]
I was contacted and asked to restore two wooden concept models, I was told, that the models were made by Jack Conroy, the designer of the “Guppy”. Both of the models are very skillfully made and show the real talent [...]

Here are some images of my Wingnut Wings Gotha G.IV. Despite its size (almost 30 inch wing span) and complexity, this kit goes together amazingly well. It has to be the best engineered model I’ve built. It is built mostly [...]
Here’s a conversion in 1/72 scale of the “Pregnant Guppy”, the first of Aero Spacelines’ series of “Guppy” outsize cargo airplanes. The Pregnant Guppy, Super Guppy, and Mini Guppy were based in my home town and they were fascinating to [...]
So far so good – but time consuming to pick out all those parts and paint individually. Hopefully some of the work is seen after I close up the fuselage!!
A further demonstration from Ron’s Skyshark of how good Dynavector vacuforms are. This being the Dynavector 1/48 deHavilland Hornet F.1, which I think is one of the best looking twin piston engine airplanes ever made. The initial concept of the [...]
This the 1/72 scale kit from Mobius .No mods just a good piece of wood to mount it on.
