Hasagawa F6F-3 Flown by Alexander Vraciu

When I was aboard Bon Homme Richard, Alexander Vraciu was the Commander of VF-51 flying FJ-2 Fury’s. Years later I had the occasion to meet him again and have lunch with him. I gave him this model which he said […]

Monogram’s 48th Scale F-106

One of Monogram’s nicest kits. This is OOB, painted with Model Master Aircraft Grey. I penciled in the panel lines to help break up all that grey paint. This is another of my favorite Century Series Fighters.

1/72 Airfix Supermarine Walrus

Nice little kit, with fictitious paint job, possibly of that era, that I just had to do.

Hasegawa 1/32nd Me-109/Bf-109

These kits practically “fall together”….they’re a joy to build and (for some), they never get old. As with the majority of my builds, they represent no actual aircraft (as far as I know), but at least they ‘look the part’, […]

1/48 Revell Sikorski H-19

Here’s the ancient 1/48 Revell Sikorski H-19 rescue helicopter that I built many years ago. The overall shape of the kit looks very accurate compared to photos I’ve seen, but detail is basic or completely lacking in most areas. Fit […]

An Oldie But Goodie 48th Scale Panther Jet

The Panther Jet has always been one of my favorite ever since I built the Monogram Speedy-Built kit back in the day. Just like the cars in the fifties, these jet where just plain down-right beautiful.

1/72 Airfix Grumman Duck

This one is modeled after Kermit Week’s Duck, at “Fantasy of Flight”, a little south of Orlando, Florida. Oddly enough, the decals were from an old Esci sheet, including the noseart. For a bi-plane (and an Airfix), it was a […]

1/48th Oscar

This was my first attempt at the all-to-common “paint chipping” effect as seen on many Japanese aircraft of WWII. I didn’t want to go ‘overboard’ (as I’ve seen on many builds). I first sprayed the airframe with metallic silver and […]
