Back in the 60’s and early 70’s it wasn’t uncommon to drive through rural airports and come across an ex-Military aircraft on the tarmack. After WWII you could buy one. And many were bought and flown to airports all over […]

1/48 Spitfire Mk Vb Trop

by Anders Isaksson on December 12, 2012 · in Aviation — 8 Comments

This is the Tamiya kit with a few PE and resin bits added. Rivets were added using Rosie The Riveter tools. All markings were painted on using Montex paint masks and the stencilling comes from Hobby Decal dry transfers, eliminating […]

Roden 1/32 Fokker Dr.I – Manfred von Richtofen

by Tom Cleaver on December 12, 2012 · in Aviation — 2 Comments

Probably one of the most recognizeable airplanes in history. Done back in 2004 when the kit first came out, using the Cutting Edge decal sheet. Lots of good history in the sheet, I think this is from the research the […]

Roden 1/32 Nieuport 28

RNZAF F4U-1D

Outstanding 1/48 Tamiya kit finished with equally outstanding decals from Aeromaster’s RNZAF special package. You really can’t go wrong with a Tamiya Corsair.

1/48 Monogram P-47D

by Tom Bebout on December 10, 2012 · in Aviation — 3 Comments

Picked up this kid at a local club in a beat up box with no decals for $2. We can make this work, just add some True Detail wheels, some decals and the pilot because the cockpit lacks detail, and […]
