Monogram 1/48th A-4 Skyhawk

by Craig Abrahamson on March 19, 2013 · in Aviation — 12 Comments

The venerable old “Scooter” adorned with a various mixture of decals from the stash, not intended to represent any aircraft in particular. As long as I had the new ‘tarmac’ base out, I figured I’d wash the dust off the […]

1/48th AM F4F Wildcat

What we have here is your basic, run-of-the-mill Wildcat….nothing special about it other than the fact I just fashioned a new tarmac base from an old piece of poster board and wanted to see how it would look. Thank you […]

Ready to start building again!

Well after a move up the coast, trauma from incompetent movers, lots of work the smaller West Seattle man cave (Man cubby?) is ready to build in. Flipped a coin between the USS Livermore and the great 109 kit I […]

start with this’un, a 57th FG “Scorpion”, a Hasegawa “K”. I believe the pilot’s name was Overcash, a successful Ace. Turns out this decal sheet I used was not entirely accurate, but the skull is still cool. This Sand over […]

1/72 Hasegawa SP-5B Marlin

by Tom Cleaver on March 17, 2013 · in Uncategorized — 10 Comments

This model is special to me, because I actually flew in the real one several times “back in the day.” “Seashell-5” (her call sign) was with VP-40 for most of her career. I most particularly remember the most interesting mission […]

Restarting a long stalled project from the “Shelf of DOOM”…. After building the Hasegawa kit, (Which is a fine model by the way) I decided to get into THIS kit, because other than the old Revell offering, it’s the only […]

1:32 scale, Hasegawa P-47M-1-Re, “Thunderbolt”

by Frederick J Seitz III on March 17, 2013 · in Aviation — 3 Comments

This is another one of my “Jugs” that currently reside at the American Airpower Museum in Farmingdale, NY. I think between Koppos and myself, we have a few there… ;). It’s a big model, so before you get into building […]

Tamiya 1:48 scale Republic P-47M-1-Re, “Thunderbolt”

Another fine model from Tamiya. I won’t go into a whole bit about HOW great this kit is, but suffice to say, it’s awesome. The upper surfaces of the model are painted in Model Master Enamels, in a very VERY […]
