This is the Pegasus kit of the Space ship from the movie When Worlds Collide.
It was a great 50's movie. The kit goes together very nicely and comes with the base and launch ramp there is a photo etch set you can get with it which includes the o[...]
Forgot I had these shots, taken way back in 1999. The PoF Zero is the only original Zero left in the world, with a Sakae engine, the airframe was never torn down. This was one of about 14 that were captured on Saipan and returned to the US. I[...]
This is an old kit of a facinating subject, the China Clipper. The Martin Clippers (China/Hawaii/Phillipine) operated from the mid-thirties to the mid-forties, spending a couple years in war camoflage. Decals are provided for all three version[...]

Yet another old build dusted off and presented for your dining and dancing pleasure. This time an old Revell (?) 48th scale Heinkel bomber. Don't see a lot of these kits built anymore for some reason. It would appear that my somewhat sloppy te[...]
My latest build. Learned a lot of new words, mainly swearing en cursing, during this build because it was a bloody PITA!!!!
The engine doesn't fit properly in the frame, nor does the parts for the cowling and guns.
Did a lot of sanding, putty-i[...]
