Recently, we had several mentions of the racing Mustangs: here, here and here, so I thought it is the right moment to pull out this from my archives. Here is the model of the most famous of them all, the […]

Frank Luke’s SPAD XIII – Hobbycraft 1/32

by Tom Cleaver on December 18, 2012 · in Aviation — 4 Comments

There is no pilot of World War I in any air force who more fits the mythology of the “Great Flying Ace of the Great War” than The Arizona Cowboy, Frank Luke. The working-class kid with no education around a […]

Hurricane for Christmas

by George Tufnail on December 18, 2012 · in Aviation — 3 Comments

This is a ten day wonder. It is the Airfix 1/48 scale kit, and took me about 14 hours total over 10 days. The personal markings are home made as is the aircraft ID. Under the tail is my brother-in-laws […]

B-17G “Chow Hound” Revell 1/48

by Billy Smith on December 17, 2012 · in Aviation — 4 Comments

This plane was my third official build and it was and still is my favorite build, but the b-26 will probably surpass this plane for the favorite build spot once I finish it. This plane was my first real attempt […]

Italeri 1/72 RCN H04S-3

by George Tufnail on December 17, 2012 · in Aviation — 5 Comments

No real reason why I built this kit. I build very few whirly-birds, but this one just appealed to me. It is kinda cute. All of the high-vis is Testors Flourescent Red, out of the little square bottle we all […]

by Tom Cleaver on December 17, 2012 · in Ships — 5 Comments

Trumpeter’s 1/350 Admiral Graf Spee, done as she looked at the Battle of the River Plate, December 17, 1939. I remember seeing “Death In The South Atlantic”, the US title for “Battle of the River Plate” in about 1957-58. Saw […]

1/48th AFV Club, Sturmtiger

by Walt Babst on December 16, 2012 · in Armor — 5 Comments

I broke one of my own rules and bought this kit a short while (probably 6-8 months) back when Squadron ran a great deal on it. I had always liked the vehicle regardless of its impracticality and the real lack […]

Blue Max 1/48 Halberstadt CL.II

by Merrill Anderson on December 16, 2012 · in Aviation — 5 Comments

Some more of my ‘paleomodeling’, the Blue Max Halberstadt. I have always liked the lines of the Halberstadt CL’s. The kit was a typical ‘limited production’ from a few years back, you had to make the parts go together. Covered […]
