As my wife’s collection of 1/12 CRevell Choppers grows, I couldn’t help but wonder what all the fuss was about. She just loves building these things, so I thought I’d give one a try. Now, I knew it had to […]
Another kit finished, this one is Eduards excellent Mk.IXc with Brassin cockpit, wheels and exhaust. It’s finished as an aircraft from No 453 Squadron RAAF.

Here is the 21st Century Toys F4U-1A Corsair, done as Ike Kepford’s VF-17 F4U-1A, and another one modified with the Montex conversion set to do an anonymous Marine F4U-1 “birdcage” circa the Rabaul campaign in late 1943. Originally priced at […]

One of our club’s themes, was “Snake Bit”, or, “something with a snake”. (I think the theme was chosen by a car builder, with a Shelby Cobra). Wanting to do something quick (and it shows), I chose the Matchbox F-86 […]
