Beginning in 1949, through 1962, the USAF flew an Air Demonstration Team called the “Skyblazers”. The team put on air demonstration in the skies over Europe . During this period the “Skyblazers” flew a number of different aircraft including: the […]
This model of the Learjet has been around for many years, and is still available. It shows it’s age when compared to the newer Hasegawa Learjet 35/36 (but, don’t we all). Still, it builds into a decent looking business/private jet […]
Legato 1/72 Curtiss P-40E Warhawk, Tamiya 1/72 Supermarine Spitfire Mk.Vb Trop, Revell 1/72 Hawker Hurricane Mk.IIc.
Just a few desert camo RAF aircraft. All oob builds, the Legato P-40 kit was hard work but turned out ok and has a good shape, the Tamiya kit as usual was a dream and the keenly priced Revell kit […]

Here again is another Hasegawa Skywarrior, this time in the early attack scheme. This is in the out of box markings for USS Independence in the early 60’s. I am still working on a scratch built bomb bay with the […]
It seems everyone likes the Whale, so I present another of my Skywarrior models, this time the KA3D. Not much to say, except that this is the carrier borne refueling tanker version out of the box by Hasegawa. The diagonal […]
