This is my interpretation of the TA-152 H0 wnr 150010. The famous "Green 4".
I build this kit from the box apart from the exhaust "Quickboost" pipes.
I helped among other book "the Focke Wulfe TA 152" Thomas H. Hitchcock.
After a long discussion[...]
The Wyvern has to be one of the strangest airplanes to ever grace a carrier deck. The first turboprop, its ten years of gestation and failure as the FAA's strike force paid off for the rest of aviation by solving the problems of controlling and[...]
According to the history of this car on the instruction sheet, this was the first L88 Corvette off the production line. It was delivered to Penske in red, having been driven straight from the factory to his shop in Pennsylvania. It finished[...]
Here is a snapshot of my workbench at the moment, as you can see i am about to finish a 1/48 Spitfire prototype (Tamiya conversion) and working on a Heller 2 seat Mirage 111 and an Airfix Javelin ( absolute joy) And a F.M H.P Hampden [...]
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 place, it g[...]

When I opened the b[...]
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. The kit itself is not easy[...]
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 and skill of the model maker[...]
Back in the 1980s, I thought of doing a model of a hypothetical Ferrari air racer. I used the 1/48 Monogram F-105G kit, one of the 2 seaters, removing the 2nd cockpit. I had already done this to make the F-105D, as Monogram had not yet released [...]
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 out of the box; the onl[...]
