Building The KINETIC F-84F

By Jack Mugan Sometime last year at a model show I managed to pick up a new 48th scale kit from a model company called KINETIC. The vendor had a nice build up of the model on display and he […]

Need for Speed

The Need for Speed By Jack Mugan Have you ever been browsing through one of you reference books and suddenly see a photo of an aircraft in markings you somehow missed before? That is what happened to me while reading […]

1/32nd FW-190D

This post is more a test of Firefox than anything else. My very first post (the Z-M Skyraider) was done through Firefox – my usual browser). Subsequent articles were posted via Safari because the other one stopped working [well, maybe […]

This is the AFV Club/Skybow 1/48th scale Tiger I . I am not an armor expert so I cannot speak to the kits accuracy, but I do believe everyone will agree it looks like a Tiger I and will not […]

1/48 Hasegawa F6F-5P conversion

I wanted to do a Hellcat in these markings ever since I saw the photo in a Hellcat reference, the Model Graphics book on the Hellcat. When I found out that Superscale put decals out for one of these VF-84 […]
