1/48 AMT F7F-2N Tigercat night fighter

Hi all, I hope you are having a good Christmastime with friends and family. I have had this kit sitting for a while waiting to get the outer wing panels properly set to finish the kit. It is the AMT […]

1/48 AMT F7F Tigercat

This is another one of my favorite planes. This one was built with the addition of a set of True Details resin wheels. I had heard some of the horror stories about how the wheels fall apart after a while […]

1/48 F7F Tigercat, Spurious paint scheme

Here is a 1/48 F7F that I did a while back. It was a first attempt to replicate the “blurred prop” effect seen in photos of real aircraft. I think it turned out well. The blurred props were done with […]
