Grumman Widgeon USCG

by Dan DeSilva on November 29, 2012 · in Aviation — 21 Comments

I present my build of the Classic Airframes Widgeon. I chose the USCG markings because of its story, but also because I didn’t have any WW2 era Coast Guard Aircraft in my collection. The USCG did a lot to protect […]

Accurate Miniatures F3F-1

by John Healy on November 29, 2012 · in Uncategorized — 4 Comments

This is my favorite kit of all time. 1/48 scale. I painted this entirely with Tamiya spray cans, except for the red cowl ring. The cowl ring was painted with a Testors lacquer spray can red that was an exact […]

Built out of the box (before all the resin was out). I stretched the wing tanks to the proper size and added napalm from a Trumpeter 1/32F-105. Thanks, Rob

Hi all! This is my most recent build, an Academy MiG-21. It was a pretty straightforward build, with no real problems that I can think of.

Tamiya F4F-4 Wildcat 1/48

by Rickard Malmborg on November 29, 2012 · in Aviation — 5 Comments

The Tamiya Wildcat was a nice kit to build, clever parts breakdown and no fit problem (as with most Tamiya kits); the only extra I put in to it was some details in the cockpit. There was a lot of […]

Works of art in plastic modeling….

by Craig Abrahamson on November 29, 2012 · in Aviation — 8 Comments

I wish to share with you now, as a change of pace as it were, several builds which I consider to be “above and beyond” what an ‘average’ modeler can accomplish. The talent displayed in these photos are far above […]

Babylon 5 kind of grew on me slowly. I was not really impressed by the First season (the lead was and is a Charisma free Zone) but when they “brought in the Bruce” the show really took off. This is […]
