I started work on this airplane about 5-6 years ago. I stopped working on scale models for several reasons but this Sea Fury and the Mirage F-1 that I did as a CSAF plane were about half-finished and they taunted me to complete them for years. [...]
Build a couple years ago, I was unpacking this from the trip back from the IPMS Nats in Orlando, and thought I'd get a couple pics before putting it back in the display case. I have many happy memories of attending airshows with my father and th[...]
Again...an older build (I think it's all there this time) - an A8 variant maybe (?). I do see that the antenna wire is gone, but I can't blame everything on the cats.
I used to take an old greeting card and rip (not cut) an irregular opening in [...]
Yet another installment of long ago modelling. A Chance Vought AU-1 Corsair built from the Monogram F4U-4 kit over 27 years ago! This model was built to compete in a local contest that had the 'Korean War' as a show theme. The AU-1 was chose[...]
My Fokker triplane made some years ago for TMMI. markings of Ltn Eberhard von Stapenhorst of Jasta 11 (four victories).
A/C brought down by ground fire 13 January, 1918 and captured.
all markings painted. Fokker streaking done with mixed artist [...]
...or maybe a Bf-109 (I still don't know the difference). Nor am I a -109 'experten', so I don't know the variant, either - the box is long gone (I don't keep 'em). In any event, I blew [most] of the dust off this old build and thought I'd offe[...]
Not the most sophisticated kit nor the most accurate. However, if your on a budget or your buying for a youngster or need a simple straight build that doesn't take months this is a good kit to buy. Some folks don't care for the engraved panels l[...]
My latest Spitfire. It's an Airfix 1/48 kit. Completed about a month ago using Humbrol enamels and an old Eaglestrike sheet for the Rhodesian markings. I never get tired of Spitfires!
This is one of my oldest Spitfires. It is a 1/48 Hobbycraft kit constructed in 1991. It was made from the original boxing that came with really bad ETO decals. I clipped the wings, opened the canopy and replaced the sliding section with one c[...]
This Bf109 features decals from Kagero and lots of modifications. Slat widths and landing gear lengths corrected, lower nose reworked by cutting away the bottom of the oil cooler and replacing with Evergreen stock. Leather wheel well covers made[...]
