This is a BIG aircraft, and a very basic, inexpensive kit of a Chinese fighter in demonstration team colors. Everything about this kit is minimal, including detail and decals, but the overall size is impressive, and it looks “bright” on […]
I just heard this morning that UK “modelling legend” Ted Taylor passed away yesterday of the crime of growing old enough to do so. (We’re all headed toward that “guilty” verdict) I only knew him the way I know most […]
Wow it has been a long time since I’ve posted on here, but I do like to poke my head in every so often 🙂 Recently I’ve been working on a p-61 (which I feel is coming along horrendous). Also […]
As I love the F4U Corsair, I also love one other aircraft that carried the name- this one, Hasegawa’s 1/48 A-7E Corsair II built as a Desert Storm HARM launcher. I am flabbergasted at the lack of operational Desert Storm […]

This is the last of three 1/48th scale Tamiya Corsairs that I purchased as a ‘lot’ on E-Bay some months back. I fashioned each one differently (as you can see by previous posts). This one may (or may not) be […]
Hello everyone! Another airplane with red stars, this time from Roden Sopwith Strutter. The assembly of the box, nothing special, and the option selected “based on”. Of the shortcomings – too shiny hood, but it is only in the photographs. […]

Also hiding in my cardboard box, was this old “Flea”. While I did beef up the interior, you can’t see anything because of the thick clear canopy. As usual, another trip down memory lane.
One of my old works. Modified the interior: the instruments, sight, replaced the second cockpit glazing, made lamp, rearview mirror. Wells made the wheel bays. Painted by Humbrol, Revell. Best regards, Vlad.
