I’ve been able to visit the National Museum of Naval Aviation in Pensacola, Florida, twice in the past month. These visits were different from previous trips in that this was the first time I’ve been able to go with no […]

Here’s my Hobbyboss FW-190D-9, of II/JG6 in May 1945. Its a very nice kit, but could use a few tweeks to make it really stand out. I really like the patched together scheme’s of wars end. True Details seat and […]

One of the recent “new tooling” Airfix’s 1/72 starter sets, and relaxingly easy build it is! This is an out of box build that spanned two weekends but were truncated due to other project commitments & stretched across the month […]

(..yet another) Porsche – 911 GT1

by IAN JACKSON on December 6, 2017 · in Automotive — 17 Comments
