Hasegawa 1/32 Ki. 61-I hei

To my mind, the Ki.61 is the best-looking Japanese fighter of World War II. This is the Hasegawa kit, built OOB other than use of Lifelike Decals. The Ki. 61 was one of the few Japanese fighters that could even get to the altitude the B-29 ope[...]

USS Wilkes DD441 Done!

Well here she is completed! Did not add every bit of PE, and since detail shots of Wilkes are hard to find I had to be creative and use other ships close to her configuration for things like the floater net baskets, but I am pretty happy overal[...]

Keepin’ it Hien…

Hey there's a theme here somewhere's. Here's my 1/32 Hasegawa Hien, in the colors of 18 Sentai, on home defense. Some pretty tailfeathers I think. All markings are sprayed on 'cept numbers and letters and the kill eagles. Base is my usual Alclad[...]

1/48 Monogram F9F-2 Panther

I thought I'd try to back date the F9F-5 to the 2 version, and so, rounded the tail a little. I'm not sure how accurate that is, but it looked ok to me. My collection needed a "Blue Angel", and I thought this would be a good place to begin. A[...]

Pilot and box

Here's a close up shot of my p51 pilot and the box. Not much to work with here, it's an old kit, but the pilot came out better than expected.

RAF Mustang III 1/48 Tamiya.

Well this my second posting the Mustang III, done in natural finish. The kit went together as any Tamiya kits do. The wings were a tight fit but hardly any filler used any where,. Had a bit if a nightmare with the colour scheme, I was originally[...]

Hasegawa 1/32 Ki.61-1 tei (conversion)

This is the beautiful Hasegawa ki.61-I tei, converted from the Ki.61-I hei using the Wolfpack resin nose for the extended cowling to make the "long nose" Tony. It is marked as the well-known "celebrity" Tony flown my Major Teruhiko Kobayashi of[...]

1/350 Jake by Tamiya

This is just for fun -- one of the float planes from the IJN Tone, an Aichi Jake. It took about 2 1/2 hours each to build the nine planes I had on the cruiser's after deck. Now, I've acquired a PE set to add cockpits and under wing stores. [...]

1/32 P51D

Here's a shot of of my p51's interior.

1/48 Ki-61 Hein by Hasegawa

Here is an older build of Japan's only in-line engine powered fighter, commonly called Tony. This is in a New Guinea scheme, which began as natural metal, but was quickly over sprayed. I think the Japanese had a strange sense of humor to cal[...]
