Hello friends, this is one of my older builds from 2014...I like the Sabre very much, also the colorful markings on those old birds. It must have been like riding a bullett when flying with it - can only imagine that ;-)
The Kit was fantastic to[...]
Fresh off the bench is my latest, the North American F-100D Super Sabre, a Trumpeter 1/48 scale kit.
I didn't start out to build models of jets, but this my 3rd one now, so I guess they are pretty fun too.
The kit offers 4 marking schemes, two[...]
This is the Trumpeter F-100D in 1/72 scale. Completed model number six for the year. I started this one in March completing about 85% of the model when a few problems with kit frustrated me to the point of putting it aside. The misshapen nose f[...]
My rendition of the Trumpeter F-107 as a fighter / interceptor. The drop tanks and missiles are from an ESCI F-100 kit. The paint is Krylon silver.
this is the Trumpeter F-100C kit which I built some 3 years ago. I had absolutely no trouble with it apart from a little bit of fettling around the air intake. Finish is Alclad & decals by Xtra Decals. The weathering is very conservative but[...]

This model represents an F-100 D from [...]
My dad flew the 100, 101, 105 and F-4, and said the 100 was his favorite plane to fly. I plan to build a bare metal model similar to his, but before I did, wanted to practice a bit on the heat-staining, so went with an SEA scheme F-100F with ju[...]
More of some older Monogram 1/48th scale "Century Series" NMF's....this time a trifecta. Rescued (and, in some cases, repaired) from the "shelf of dust". I was on a tear with my rattle cans of Model Master "Buffable Metalizer's" a while back and[...]
The time has come when the dust swept under "vitrinas" from the kit (thankfully minimal).
I take my time and some models foto and some of them will be published
here in . ??
The model is made 16 years ago the manufacturer of the Revell 1/14[...]
